This is a good band, congrats to the person who tabbed Laundry for knowing
about that song. I'm almost positive about this tab, the only part I'm not
sure about is guitar 3's part, but it sounds about right, so it should be okay.
Anyways, enjoy!

G         D            G             D
Her pretty noises, can you turn them down?
  G              D             G          D
I think that I'm dying, do you want to go out?
        G                D             G            D
Because we can play some pac-man or go to the library
       G             D               G          D
We can order up some Phad-Thai (?) without the MSG

Riff 2

(chorus)
G              D                        G
And they write books about this sort of thing
               D                        G
And they write books about this sort of thing
                D                        G
Yeah they write books about this sort of thing


Closed-caption heartbeats though five letters long
I think she's gone to Nashville, she don't care for my songs
And if my heart hadn't withered then perhaps I'd trek her down
But I've got a lot to steer on so I guess I'll hang around
