Bm         		A          G        Em
Doctor Doctor what is wrong with me
Bm			A          G        Em
This supermarket life is getting long
Bm			A	G        Em
What is the heart life of a colour TV		
Bm		        A		G        Em  C
What is the shelf life of a teenage queen

D   Dsus2  D G
Ooh Western woman
D   Dsus2  D G
Ooh Western girl

New hounds sniff the air
	     A           G		Em
When Jessica Hahn goes down
Bm					  A  G  Em			
He latches onto that symbol of detachment
Bm             A      G			Em
attracted by the peeling away of feeling
Bm                A     G			  Em  C
The celebrity of the abused shell the belle

D     Dsus2 D G
Ooh Western woman
D    Dsus2  D   G
Ooh Western girl

D    Dsus2  D G
Ooh Western woman
D    Dsus2  D   G
Ooh Western girl

And the children of Melrose 
D  Dsus2
Strut their stuff
Is absolute zero cold enough
D		        Dsus2  D
And out in the valley warm and clean
The little ones sit by their TV screens
D	        Dsus2  D
No thoughts to think
No tears to cry
G     A	   Bm
All sucked dry
	        A         G	
Down to the very last breath
Em		    A 
Bartender what is wrong with me?
Em		       A	
Why am I so out of breath?
Em		    A
The captain said excuse me ma'am
Em		      A
This species has amused itself to death

(intro notes comes in full force)

D        Dsus2  D   G	
Amused itself to death
D        Dsus2  D   G
Amused itself to death
D	        Dsus2    D       G
We watched the tragedy unfold

We did as we were told
We bought and sold
	       Dsus2   D      G
It was the greatest show on earth

But then it was over
we ohhed and aahed
	         Dsus2   D
we drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of cavier
And somewhere out there in the stars
    Dsus2       D
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
Our last hurrah

Em			          A
And when they found our shadows
Em			    A
Grouped around the TV sets
Em			A
They ran down every lead
Em			A
They repeated every test
Bm			            G 
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
G		      Em	     
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
Dsus2  D   G
For our sad demise
D                      Dsus2  D    G
They logged the explanation left
G		         Bm
This species has amused itself to death

Bm   A   G   Em	       
Bm   A   G   Em
repeat and fade
