Difranco Ani
Ok here it is..the new Ani DiFranco song...it's Little Plastic 
  Castle...This song is played on the four last strings in an alternate
  tuning...to get the exact picking you'll just have to listen to the
  cd...it's nothing specific...or you could improvise...it all works b/c
  Ani rocks!!!!
   Tuning:  (EA)ADAD (top four strings are the only ones used)
   Intro and verses:

   Chorus:                                                              x3
   To get the full effect you really have to listen to the cd for exact
  picking...but there it was...when i play it i pick at the very bottom of my
  guitar to get a bit closer to the tenor guitar sound.
  In a coffeeshop in a city
  Which is every coffeeshop in every city
  On a day which is everyday
  I picked up a magazine
  Which is every magazine
  I read a story then I forgot it right away
  They say goldfish have no memory
  I guess their lives are much like mine
  And the little plastic castle
  Is a surprise everytime
  And it's hard to say if they're happy
  But they don't seem much to mind

  From the shape of your shaved head
  I recognized your silhouette
  As you walked out of the sun and sat down
  And the sight of your sleepy smile
  Eclipsed all the other people
  As they paused to sneer at the two girls 
  From out of town

  And i said look at you this morning
  You are, by far, the cutest
  But be careful getting coffee
  I think these people wanna shoot us
  Or maybe there's some kinda local competition here
  To see who can be the rudest
  People talk about my image 
  Like I come in two dimensions
  Like lipstick is a sign of my declining mind
  Like what I happen to be wearing
  The day that someone takes a picture
  Is my new statement for all of womankind
  And i wish they could see us now
  In leather bras and rubber shorts
  Like some ridiculous new team uniform
  For some ridiculous new sport
  Quick! Someone call the girl police and file a report!

  In a coffeeshop in a city
  Which is every coffeeshop in every city
  On a day which is everyday
