I knew prufrock before he got famous

A (x02220@1)                           Asus4Let's (x02230@1)begin at the beginning, we're lovers and we're losers
G# (xx1114@1)                            Dsus2We're (xx0230@1)heroes and we're pioneers, we're beggars and we're choosers
E (022100@1)                          F#mSkirting (244222@1)'round the edges of the ideal demographic
G# (xx1114@1)                           Dsus2We're (xx0230@1)always on the guest list,but we're always stuck in traffic

Same again for this bit, with faster strumming

We've watched our close associates, Often play their parts
Chatting up the 'it' girls, And they're tearing up the charts
While we were paying with coppers to get our rounds in at the bar
We're the C team, we're the almost famous old friends of the stars

F#m (244222@1)     E (022100@1)    G# (xx1114@1)      Asus4 (x02230@1)    Dsus2 (xx0230@1)Justin is the last great romantic poet
He's the only one among us who is ever gonna' make it
We planned the revolution from a cheap Southampton bistro
I don't remember details, but there were English boys with Banjos
Jay is our St George and he's standing on a wooden chair
And he sings songs and he slays dragons and he's losing all his hair
And Adam is the resurrected spirit of Gram Parsons
In plaid instead of Rhinestone and living in South London
And no one's really clear about Tommy's job description
But it's pretty clear he's vital to the whole damn operation
And Dave Danger smiles at strangers, Tre's the safest girl I know
And sullen hearts will scamper off to victory in the City we call home

F#m (244222@1)                                             EAnd (022100@1)we won't change our ways, we will proud remain,
G# (xx1114@1)      Asus4 (x02230@1)       Dsus2 (xx0230@1)when the glory fades, when the glory fades

Yeah I am sick and tired of people who are living on the B-list
Yeah they're waiting to be famous, and they're wondering why they do this
And I know I'm not the one who is habitually optimistic
But I'm the one who's got the microphone here so just remember this
Yeah, well life is about love, lost minutes and lost evening
About fire in our bellies and about furtive little feelings
And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering
And they help us with remembering that the only thing that's left to do is

  A (x02220@1)        Asus4 (x02230@1)    G# (xx1114@1)       Dsus2 (xx0230@1)     D (xx0232@1)     
 live                             yeah the only thing that's left to do is 

 A (x02220@1)            Asus4 (x02230@1)                  G#live, (xx1114@1)after all of the loving and losing, after all the heroes and the pioneers

(strum these last chords once)

Dsus2 (xx0230@1)                              E (022100@1)                   AThe (x02220@1)only thing that's left to do is get another round in at the bar. 

Well it's better than the other one. Tell me what you think.
