2ND VERSE:   (1st 4 lines played same as first 4 staves of Verse 1)   

High class in overcruise, A little hip talk in borrowed shoes
A foot in the kitchen, a foot in the door
But the foot in your mouth is so you don't get bored

Notes:
-Bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time.
-Dots (...) located under any staff are for timing, and indicate where the
 downbeats (1234) fall.
-I don't think the final three staves are 4/4 time all the way through, 
 but I'm not sure what the time signature shifts are. That part is all 8th 
 notes, and using the timing dots under the staff will show where 8th rests 
 occur.
-More Max Webster tabs (and other Canadian band tabs) can be found on my 
 tab website. There's a link to the site on my UG Profile Page. (Click on
