For the second and louder part of the song, the guitar part uses the same chords but
the ‘b’ string and sometimes the top ‘e’ string like this:

Chords:
     (A2)             (C2)           (G2)         (Em2)
E|--0--------------0-----------(0)-----------(0)---|
B|--0--------------0------------0-------------0----|
G|--2--------------0------------0-------------0----|
D|--2--------------2------------0-------------2----|
A|--0--------------3------------2-------------2----|
E|--------------------------------3-------------0--|

Same rhythm is also used.

(A2)                                               (C2)
The garbage trucks are coming
                  (G2)            (A2)
To take your shit to the dump
                                      (C2)
You're smelling pretty now
           (G2)           (A2)
Such a pretty little lump
     (C2)          (G2)           (Em2)
A pretty little lump of flesh
                     (A2)        (C2)
Who's lost your way
             (Em2)            (A2)
Another night another day


(A2)                                    (C2)
And when you sleep at night
              (G2)              (A2)
Dreaming of the pretty things
                                 (C2)
Don't be too surprised
                (G2)        (A2)
When the telephone rings

(A2)               (C2)         (G2)             (A2)
Woooooooo   wooooo   ooooooo   oooooooooooo


(A2)               (C2)         (G2)             (A2)
Woooooooo   wooooo   ooooooo   oooooooooooo

(A2)
I'll be sitting here
(C2)                (G2)              (A2)
Waiting for the other shoe to drop
(A2)
I'll be sitting here
(C2)                (G2)              (A2)
Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Outro:

   (A2)                             End on (A2)
