Bass tab...you could also us this as a chord chart for guitar, just use dominant 7ths 
strum agressively..

Tina really rocked this song!!!!..killer groove.

Play this with a pick and on your amp EQ, turn the bass and low-mids down to about 1/4 
and turn your high-mids and treble up to almost full open, so you get kind of a springy 
and don't be afraid to really dig in and hit the strings hard with the pick...

the intro fades in with the chorus riff played 2X...(with the E riff played 2X)...[see chorus]

Verse
   D
G-----------|  (you can play this riff an octave higher if you like)
D-----------|
A--5---34---|
E---5-X-----| x 8
      Think of london...
   Db
G----------|
D----------|
A--4---23--|
E---4-X----|  x 2
      I'm checkin em out...
   D
G-----------|
D-----------|
A--5---34---|
E---5-X-----| x 2
      I got it figured out...
  G
G----------|
D-5-5--34--|
A--5-5-----|
E----------| x 2
    some good points...

  F
G----------------------------------------------|
D-3-3--12-<<(fret 1 then fret 2, [not fret 12--|d])
A--3-3-----------------------------------------|
E--------- x 2---------------------------------|
     but it all works out...

Chorus
   F#          B            E x2
G-------------------------|-----------------------------|
D--4-----234---2-----012--|-9-----789-------------------|
A---4-X-4-------2-X-2-----|--9-X-9----------------------|
E-------------------------|-----------------------------| x2
   Find your city, find yourself a city to live in.....

(this is an alternative to the E part in the chorus...just substitute)
  E
G--------------|
D--------------|
A-2-----012----|
E--2-X-2-------|

there is also a crazy guitar solo by Adrian that is played for a couple of bars with the 
riff...again listen to the record,

this is essentially the form of the song...listen for timing and subtle nuances and 
repeat a few times over..(didn't count it so listen to the record)


Enjoy!!!
