Here is a better interpretation of I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones
than either of the ones that are currently posted on the mirrors site.

I W a n n a B e S e d a t e d
Artist: Ramones
Intro: E (2 measures) - slide into it from a D#
[E]Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go [B] I wanna be se[E]dated
[E]Nothin' to do and no where to go-o [B] I wanna [E]be sedated
Just [B]get me to the airport p[E]ut me on a plane
[B]Hurry hurry hurry be[E]fore I go insane
I c[B]an't control my fingers I c[E]an't control my brain
Oh [A]no no no no [B]no
Lead guitar picks 8th notes on the open high E string over E A B E
chords (1 measure each)
E (2 measures) - slide into it from a D#. Then it goes up a *full* step
[F#]Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go [B] I wanna be sed[F#]ated
[F#]Nothin' to do and no where to go-o [B]I wanna be seda[F#]ted
Just [C#]put me in a wheelchair g[F#]et me to the show
[C#]Hurry hurry hurry bef[F#]ore I gotta go
[C#]I can't control my fingers I c[F#]an't control my toes
Oh [B]no no no no [C#]no
F# (2 measures)
Repeat last verse, then:
[F#] [B] [C#] [F#]  
 Ba-ba-bamp-ba Ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated

[F#] [B] [C#] [F#]  
 Ba-ba-bamp-ba Ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated

repeat and let F# ring to end

Title: I Wanna Be Sedated
[E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E] [E]  
T[E]went[E]y-t[E]wen[E]ty-[E]twe[E]nty[E] four hours ago
I[A] wanna be sedated[E] [E] [E] [E]
N[E]oth[E]in'[E] to[E] do[E] an[E]d n[E]o where to go-o-o
I[A] wanna be sedated[E] [E] [E] [E]
Just[B] g[B]et[B] m[B]e to the airport put me on a [E]pl[E]ane
H[B]ur[B]ry[B] h[B]urry hurry before I go insan[E]e[E] [E]
I[B] c[B]an[B]'t[B] control my fingers I can't contr[E]ol m[E]y brain
O[A]h [A]no[A] no [B]no [B]no[B] no
[B]I wann[B]a be s[B]edated
The 'solo' part is:

Over the E E E E A A A A B B B B E E E E part.
then it goes up a *full* step so that the chords are:
[F#] [B] [C#]  
hopefully, that's enough explanation of this one.
Distort heavily, and make up your own lyrics as needed.
> Sounds like I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones.
Oh, what the hell...
Tw[E]enty, twenty, twenty four hours to go
I [A]wanna be sed[E]ated.
N[E]othing to do no way to go home
[A]I wanna be sed[E]ated
Just t[B]ake me to the airport
[E]Put me on a plane
[B]Hurry hurry hurry
[E]Before I go insane
[B]I can't control my fingers
[E]I can't control my brain
Oh [A]no oh oh oh [B]no
