Track Title: Chick Lit
Artist: We Are Scientists
Album: Brain Thrust Mastery
Year: 2008
Tabbed By: Andrew Carr

The 2nd single??? I think, from the follow-up album to Love and Squalor. Not my 
song to be honest, but it hasnt been tabbed for some reason.

Dont ask me what that crazy noise is during the verses.


Intro/Interlude

e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------7--7--7---------------|
D|----7--7--7--6--6--6--7--7--7--6--6--6------|
A|----7--7--7--6--6--6--5--5--5--6--6--6------|
E|----5--5--5--4--4--4-----------4--4--4------|

OR   Not quite sure which sounds better :) Mix n' Match the chords if you like

e|--------------------------------------------|

D|----7--7--7--6--6--6--7--7--7--6--6--6------|
A|----6--6--6--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5------|

Chorus

e|-------------7------------7-----------|
B|----7----5-------7----5-------7----5--|
G|--------------------------------------|

If you really wanna play chords for the chorus then try these, however what your gonna 
tryin to play is bass, but it sounds pretty decent on guitar.
NB: Very Fast Strumming!!!

e|-----------------------|--------|
B|-----------------------|--------|
G|----2----4-------------|--------|
D|----2----4----5--------|--7-----|<-- Listen for this chord after the 553
A|----0----2----5--------|--7-----|
E|--------------3--------|--5-----|


End of 2nd Verse Chord listen for the alternating strum pattern

e|------------------|
B|---10-------------|
G|---11-------------|
D|---11-------------|
A|---9--------------|
E|------------------|

Thats all you need to know to play the song!! There is one chord right at the end of the 
which i cant quite put my finger on, but im sure u can
figure it out.
Should be noted that the interlude sounds a bit different to the intro chords, which i 
put my finger on either :(


LYRICS

I wouldn't be caught dead with your kind
and all the hot-shot carrying on that you do.
It's your only move.

I wanna see you all buried alive
and I'll be up top carrying on over you,
only for you.

I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
If after all we still have high hopes,
and all is forgiven, if all is forgiven.
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again

You know that we've got some axes to grind.
We've got some sharp-tongue carrying on to do,
it's your only move.

I wanna see you all buried alive
and I'll be up top carrying on over you,
only for you.

I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
If after all we still have high hopes,
and all is forgiven, if all is forgiven.
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again

I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
If after all we still have high hopes,
and all is forgiven, if all is forgiven.
I asked you nicely once but I won't do that again
again

I dont think this tab is perfect to be honest, would be happy for corrections.

Thanx Andrew.

P.S. Mr Sacker Is A P0nce.

chords for chorus are much easier - these are useful if you have a rythm and a lead guitarist, bassist will be following same notes.

8 8 16 8 8 8 8 (strums)
E ---------------------------------------
A 7 9 5 7 9 5 12
D 9 11 7 9 11 7 14
G 9 11 7 9 11 7 14
B----------------------------------------
E
