Electric Lady Chords – Janelle Monae

 Title track from Janelle Monáe's awesome second album. Basically it's just Bm A Em F#7 
repeated all through the song, but I've included the full lyrics below as well with 
timings for when to swap the chords. Let me know any feedback or thoughts!

 Bm A 
   El-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-tric
 Em F#7 
    Lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-dy

    Bm A 
Ooh, you shock it, shake it, baby
 Em F#7 
   Electric lady, you're a star
 Bm A 
  You got a classic kind of crazy
 Em F#7 
   But you know just who you are
 Bm A Em 
   You got the look the Gods agree they wanna see
                          F#7 
   All the birds and the bees
                                   Bm 
Dancing with the freaks in the trees
                                A 
   And watch the water turn to wine
                           Em 
Out in space and out your mind
                        F#7 
Ooh, shock me one good time

          Bm A Em 
Electric Lady, get way down
          F#7 
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
          Bm A Em 
Electric Lady, get way down
          F#7 
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

 Bm A 
La----dy (baby)
          Em F#7 
Electric La----dy

   Bm A Em 
Yeah, I'll reprogram your mind, come on, get in
                        F#7 
My spaceship leaves at ten
 Bm A Em 
    I'm where I wanna be, just you and me
                      F#7 Bm 
Baby, talking on the side, as the world spins around
                           A 
Can you feel your spine unwind,
                             Em 
And watch the water turn to wine?
                        F#7 
Ooh, shock it one good time


          Bm A Em 
Electric Lady, get way down
          F#7 
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
          Bm A Em 
Electric Lady, get way down
          F#7 
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

 Bm 
Gloss on her lips, glass on the ceiling
         A 
All the girls showing love while the boys be catching feelings
 Em 
Once you see her face, her eyes, you'll remember
            F#7 
And she'll have you falling harder than a Sunday in September
 Bm 
Whether in Savannah, K-Kansas or in Atlanta
 A 
She'll walk in any room, have you raising up your antennas
 Em 
She can fly you straight to the moon or to the ghettos
 F#7 
Wearing tennis shoes or in flats or in stilettos
   Bm 
Illuminating all that she touches, eye on the sparrow
   A 
A modern day Joan of her Arc or Mia Farrow
 Em 
Classy, sassy, put you in a razzle-dazzy
        F#7 
Her magnetic energy will have you coming home like Lassie
          Bm 
Singing, "Ooh, shock it, break it, baby"
 A 
Electro-, sophisti-, funky, lady
 Em 
We the kind of girls who ain't afraid to get down
          F#7 
Electric ladies go on and scream out loud!

          Bm A Em 
Electric Lady, get way down
          F#7 
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
          Bm A Em<
