Verse 1
At the [C]record [F]company [G]meeting,
[C]On their h[F]ands: a dead s[G]tar.
And o[Am]oh, the p[F]lans that they w[G]eave,
F Am F G E*
And ooh, the sickening greed.
Verse 2
At the [A]record [D]company [E]party
[A]On their h[D]ands: a dead s[E]tar.
The [F#m]sycophantic [D]slags all [E]say:
"I [D]knew him f[A]irst, and I [D]knew him w[E]ell."
Re[A]-issue! Re[D]-package! R[E]e-package!
Re[A]-evalu[D]ate the so[E]ngs,
[F#m]Double p[D]ack with a p[E]hotograph,
[D]Extra t[A]rack (and a t[D]acky b[E]adge.)[G]
Verse 3
[C]A-list, play[F]list,
"Please them, please [G]them, please them!"
([C]Sadly, [F]this was your lif[G]e)
But you [Am]could have said [F]no, if you'd[G] wanted to,
[F] You c[Am]ould have said [F]no, if you'd[G] wanted to.
Verse 4
BP[C]I, MTV, [F]BBC,
"Please [G]them. please them!"
([C]Sadly, t[F]his was your life[G])

F Am F G E*
You could have walked away, couldn't you?
Verse 5
[A] I t[D]ouched you at the sound[E]check,
You h[A]ad no [D]real way of [E]knowing.
In my [F#m]heart I [D]begged, "Take me [E]with you.[D]
I [F#m]don't care [D]where you're g[E]oing."
Verse 6
But to [A]you I was fa[D]celess,
I was fa[E]wning, I was boring.
A c[A]hild from those [D]ugly new [E]houses,
Who could [F#m]never be[D]gin to [E]know,
[D]Who could [F#m]never [D]really [E]know.[G]

I [G]dance my l[C]egs [F]down to the [G]knees.
G[Am] [F] E*[G] [F] [Am]
But me and my true love will never meet again...
Verse 10
At the [A]record [D]company [E]meeting,
On their [A]hands, at [D]last, a dead star[E]!
But they can [F#m]never [D]taint you in [E]my eyes,
[D]They can [F#m]never [D]touch you [E]now.
No, they [A]cannot [D]hurt you my [E]darling,
They [A]cannot [D]touch you [E]now,
[F#m] [D] [E] [D] [F#m]  
But[E] me and my true love will never meet again.
