Bm                     A                 
It's these substandard motels on the 
     G       G             Gb  F   
-lalalalala- corner of 4th and Fremont
Gb
Street. 
Bm        A                               Gb G Gb 
Appealing only because they are just that un-appealing
G                      Gb    F                Gb 
Any practiced catholic would cross themselves upon entering.
Bm               A                       G  G      Gb      F         Gb
The rooms have a hint of asbestos and maybe just a dash of formaldehyde,
Bm      A                    Gb    G Gb        G     Gb        F  Gb 
And the habit of decomposing right before your very -lalalala- eyes.


Gb                      Bm
Along with the people inside
D      A        Gb  Bm   Em  D   Gb
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Bm      D      A      Gb Bm        Em D   Gb      
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy


G                             Bm
Tonight tenants range from: a lawyer and a virgin
G                    Bm
Rising with a rosary tucked inside her lingerie 
      Em        Gb         G         A
She's getting a job at the firm come Monday.
    Em        Gb            G        A
The Mrs. will stay with the cheating attorney
    Em       Gb         G                A
moonlighting aside, she really needs his money.
  Em        Gb            G      A
A wonderful caricature of intimacy.


Gb
Yeah -Yeah-


Bm         A            Gb G Gb                                  Bm    
And not to mention, the constable, and his proposition, for that "virgin"
A                       G            G                 Gb
Yes, the one the lawyer met with on "strictly business"
F                    Gb Bm         A
as he said to the Mrs., only hours before,
         G         G       Gb         F       Gb
after he had left, she was fixing her face in a compact.
Gb          Gb G Gb
There was a terrible crash -There was a terrible crash-
Bm      A       
Between her and the badge
                G                  G   Gb     F       Gb
She spilled her purse and her bag, and held a "purse" of a different kind.


Gb                      Bm
Along with the people inside
D      A        Gb  Bm   Em  D   Gb
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Bm      D      A      Gb Bm        Em D   Gb      
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Gb         
There are no
G            Bm                       G
raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses.
                       Bm              
It's sleeping with the roaches and taking best guesses
   Em           Gb         G              A 
So shed off the sheets and before all the stains
 Em       Gb           G              Bb
And a few more of your least favorite things.


G            Bm                       G

  1. Ukulele Panda, I suggest for alternative E fingerings you use:
    •barre fourth fret and put pinky on string A fret seven
    •play the D chord and move that shape to the fourth fret
    Thanks!

  2. UkulelePanda

    -5 is easy except it has *shudder* the dreaded E chord along with Db = C#. Does anyone know a replacement?

  3. Killjoysneverdie

    -2 is definitely alot easier

  4. one cardinal

    Any tab available for the cello solo?

  5. I think +5 is easier if you don’t like the bar chords but it’s preferance

  6. monukulele

    That F doesn’t quite sound right. I usually just play a Bm there and it sounds a little better.

  7. If you’re struggling with Gb just play C and A strings on the first fret, and then E on the second fret and G on the third

  8. ukulelefangirl

    +5 is easier
