in full : 

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                  F# 
We are the central shaft  -  And we are

E               B
here to let you take advantage

F#             E
Of our lack of craft

B                    F#
Certain streets have certain corners

E                B
Sooner or later, we'll turn yours

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                     F#
We are the central shaft  - And thus through-

 E                   B
-out two years we've crossed the ocean 

F#            E
in our little craft (Row! Row! Row!)

B                F#
Now we're on the telephone

E                B
Making final arrangements (Ding! Ding!)

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                     F#
We are the central shaft 

E  B  B

F#                    E 
Looking for a certain ratio

B                         B                      
Someone must have left it underneath the carpet

F#                      E 
Looking up and down the radio

B                    B                      
Oh-oh, nothing there this time

F#                    E 
Looking for a certain ratio

B                        B                      
Someone said they saw it parking in a car-lot

F#                      E 
Looking up and down the radio

B                    B    
Oh-oh, nothing there this time

F#                      E 
Going back down to the radio

B                          B    
Oh, oh - oh, oh - oh, oh - here we go!

F# We are the table, the captain's table C# Let's get it understood, let's get it understood E We are the losers, we are the bruisers B Let's get it understood, let's get it understood F# We are the diners, the final diners C# Let's get it understood, let's get it understood E Most of us tinkers, some of us tailors, B And we've got candlesticks, and lots of cocktail sticks F# We saw the lovers, the modern lovers C# And they looked very good, they looked as if they could E We are the neighbours, the nosy neighbours B We think just like we would, we think just like we should. ==== (continue 3rd part) ==== Oh, oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
