Sick Day
Fountains of Wayne, 1996

Verse I: Start with fade into Am7 - Dsus4-D-Dsus2

Am7 Dsus4-D-Dsus2
Check out the girl in the harbor tunnel
Am7 Dsus4-D-Dsus2
Crawling to work, six feet under
And the day has barely begun
c G D
They're all chewing gum and laughing
Am7 Dsus4-D-Dsus2
At the voice of the cracklin radio station
Am7 Dsus4-D-Dsus2
Lead us not into Penn Station
And the best parts just begun
We're all becoming one, again
Am7 Em Am7 [C?]
And she's making the scene with her coffee and cream
And the copy machines not working
Am7 Em Am7 [C?]
She's a hell of a girl, she's alone in the world
And she likes to say `Hey good lookin'
Am7 D
She's on her way
Am7 D
She's taking a sick day
Bb - C [?]

Am7 - Dsus4-D-Dsus2 [2x]

Verse II:

And here is the man pushing paper past her
Thinks of ways to make the day go faster
But the day goes on and on
He dreams of his lawn and all about
The pretty careerist the next cube over
The fat secretary the lunch-time lover
Till the Path train finally comes
The platforms full of bums again

Chorus II [same as I]

Solo over verse chords

Chorus III

And she's taking her time, as she's tossing a dime
At the man in the cardboard coffin
It doesn't have to be fine, she's ahead of the line
And doesn't have to be here too often
She's making a play
Bb - C - G [let ring, and false end]
She's taking a sick day soon

Drum fill and:

Fade out over Am7 - D

OK, there's some mistakes/simplifications in this one, but it ought to
get you started.
