Here is what I think is as accurate as I can tell by ear. I've probably missed out a
note here and there. On the harmonics, I think it's on the 7th fret, though I prefer
playing it on the 12th, it has a nicer ring to it.

I'd love for any corrections or opinions on my first transcription. 


                                    "Some things in life are bad..."


The rest of the song is a pretty basic G, Em, Am7 (or Am) and D7, then Am7 (or Am), D7,
G, Em. I couldn't pick up what it was exactly because of the background music. So this
is my guess what it might/could have sounded like.

   G      Em      Am7     D7
|---4-------0-------5-------5------|-------(rinse & repeat)----------|

"And always look on the bright side of life..."

   Am7     D7     G       Em

"If life seems jolly rotten..."

   Am7                                   D7

"Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing..."
