California Girls  The Magnetic Fields

The Magnetic Fields
tabbed by benjamin allen (
just a rough busking version of a fantastic song,
long live the magnetic fields
Intro: B Ab E, F# B with this riff:
 b------ 0-2-4-4-5 5-4-2-0-0
 g------ 3-4

[B]See them on the [F#]big bright [B]screen
[B]tan and [E]blonde and [F#]seventeen
[B]eating non-food [F#]keeps them [B]mean
but they're [E]young forever[F#]
if they must g[B]row up
they marry [Ab]dukes and [E]earls
I hate Cali[F#]fornia g[B]irls
[B]They ain't broke so they [F#]put on [B]airs
the faux [E]folks sans de[F#]rrieres
[B]they breathe coke and they [F#]have af[B]fairs
with each [E]passing rock star[F#]
they come [B]on like squares
then get [Ab]off like sq[E]uirrels
I hate Cali[F#]fornia [B]girls
([B]with riff)[Ab] [E] [F#] [B]
then Bridge:
[G]Looking down their [A]perfect noses
[F#m]at me and my [G]kind
[G]do they think we [A]won't-
well never[E]mind
[G]laughing through their [A]perfect teeth
at [F#m]everyone I [G]know
[G]do they think we [A]won't
get up and [E]go
[B]I have planned my [F#]grand at[B]tacks
I will [E]stand be[F#]hind their backs
[B]with my brand-new [F#]battle-a[B]xe
then will [E]they taste [F#]my wrath?
They will [B]hear me say
as the [Ab]pavement [E]whirls
"I hate Cali[F#]fornia [B]girls.."
