G5           D5                  D5 
Had guards like watchdogs, dogs in a manger 
        G5              D5                  D5 
I could feel the protection, possession and anger 
      G5              D5                  D5 
And I drove out of there with no one behind me 
G5         D5             D5 
  Feeling funny and free 
  
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors 

Aren't you precious inside 

I have no need of anger with intimate strangers 

And I got nothing to hide 
  
I laughed as I said it, this is my situation 

It's not pictures or privilege, it's just self-preservation 

I don't want you to feel any obligation 

It feels so funny to be free 
  
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors 

Aren't you precious inside 

I have no need of anger with intimate strangers 

And I got nothing to hide 
  

A5  A5   A5  A5   E5  E5   E5  E5   A5  A5   A5  A5 
{Guitar solo; see tab at end.  (chords are rough approximations)} 
G5   G5    D5   C5    G5   G5    n.c. C5  C5  C5 
{Guitar solo; see tab at end.  (chords are rough approximations)} 
 
We act empty and innocent, but we are fueled by distortions 

                 (I                 remember         you) 

Of lives led in discontent, trading misfortunes 

   (When        we     were shiny  and  new; Now you) 

'Cause faith is one thing that is hard to deliver 

       (guard  your faith,         temper your speed) 

 It feels so funny to be free 

(It feels so funny to be free) 
 
All you pretty pretenders, negligent vendors 

Aren't you precious inside 

I have no need of anger with intimate strangers 

And I got nothing to hide 
 

G5     D5         E5  E5   A5   A5   A5   A5 
I got nothing to hi  -   i  - ide 
A5  E5    E5     A5  E5    E5     A5  E5    E5     A5  E5    E5 
Laa laa, la la la (etc.) 
A5   A5   A5  A5 
Laaaaa 
D5          D5      D5          D5 
All of us, all of us, all of us, all of us 
  
Pretty pretenders, negligent vendors 
Aren't we precious inside 
I have no need of anger with intimate strangers 
And I got nothing to hide 
I got nothing to hide 
 
I had guards like watchdogs, dogs in a manger 
                  (I       remem    -    ber     you) 
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL AT END OF FIRST CHORUS

{Emily actually plays a lot more notes than this; these are the ones 
 that stand out, and this is how _I_ play it.  If you want the complete, 
 correct version, buy the songbook.}
