Capo 3
I use my thumb for the "F#" (the low 2).  Pull the "B" off to "A"
to add some color. More notes at the bottom.

       D5        D5/F#      D5/G
Youíre cussing a storm in a cocktail dress 
     D5          D5/F#      D5/G 
your mother wore       when she was young
D5           D5/F#     D5/G
Red southern saint around   your neck
  D5     D5/F#     D5/G
A wet martini in a paper cup

            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest
            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest

     D5       D5/F#     D5/G 
Your eyes are broken bottles
D5      D5/F#       D5/G
   And Iím afraid to ask
    D5        D5/F#    D5/G
And all your wrath and cutting beauty
       D5     D5/F#         D5/G
Youíre poison in the pretty glass

            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest
            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest

       D2          D2/F#     D2/G
Youíre all humming      live     wires 
D2         D2/F#            D2/G
under your killing clothes.
D2       D2/F#      D2/G
Get over here, I wanna 
D2        D2/F#          D2/G
kiss your skinny throat

            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest
            D2    D2/F#      D2/G 
Youíre a wasp nest

Notes

Thereís more than one guitar, and you start hear added notes like this.
I play this down an octave or drop the chord and move my hand up 
for a moment.

Capo 3
                    or
---0---7p5--------      ---0---0----------|
---3--------------      ---3---3----------|
---2--------------      ---2---4p2--------|
-0----0-----------      -0----0-----------|
------------------      ------------------|
------------------      ------------------|

You might be able to play the flourishes better if you move the
capo to the 8th fret and D chords to A chords.
The problem is you canít play the G# in the bass

A5       A5/F#    A5/G     or  A2     etc            
---------|--------|---------   -------0--2p0---------------|
