Hey, I looked around and this song didn't really have a good tab, so I 
decided to post one.  I like the song, it's not their best, but it's fun. 
 It's also not really hard to get a general gist of what is going on 
yourself, but with the horns and organ and sitar it gets pretty jumbled at 
times.  Anyway, to make your life and mine (in the future when I forget this 
song and want to relearn it) easier, here is what I got from it.


Before I start, props to whoever posted on guitaretab because they were 
closest to the real deal and set me on the right path.

             "1 2 3 4"

So the guitars basically just continue with the D riff above, but then 
there's this melody over top of that some instrument is playing...

   1 2 3 4 &  1 2 3 4 &  1 2 3 4 &  1 2 3 & 4 &

The "R" signifies that it is a held over beat from the previous measure, so
 a rest of sorts, but you let it ring.  Essentially, the & of the 4 beat in 
the 4th measure is getting ahead of the beat of the song and then you sit on
 it for a beat to get back in time.

The Main Riff
Generally, this will be the double upstrokes near the 2 and 4 beats of the 
measure, it's syncopated behind the beat in a standard ska sort of way. 
 Listen to the song, it's not hard to figure out.
