there's really only two different rythms you have to pick up for this song,
but they're not the easiest, I've tried showing timing on this tab by the
distances between the chords and the muted parts.
Just listen to the song now and you should be able to pick it up.  I recommend
you learn it quite slowly first though to make sure you can get the timing, then
speeding it up comes along faster as well and being able to play along with the
song.

Lyrics


[Hook]

Good times, these are the good times
A new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times


[Verse 1]

Happy days are here again
The time is right for makin' friends
Let's get together, how 'bout a quarter to ten
Come tomorrow, let's all do it again
Boys will be boys, better let them have their toys
Girls will be girls, cute poney tails and curls
Must put an end to this stress and strife
I think I want to live the sporting life


[Hook]

Good times, these are the good times
A new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times


[Verse 2]

A rumour has it that it's getting late
Time marches on, just can't wait
The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
You silly fool, you can't change your fate
Let's cug the rug, a little jive and jitterbug
We want the best, we won't settle for less
Don't be a drag, participate
Clams on the half shell and rollerskates, rollerskates


[Hook]

Good times, these are the good times
A new state of mind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times

And the third chord, in my opinion, looks like xx7787 in that video.
