[Verse]

F#             D                     (just finger the verse)
Underneath the bridge 
F#                     D 
The tarp has sprung a leak

have all become my pets                 
F#                      D 
And I'm living off of grass 
F#                          D 
And the drippings from my ceiling
F#                D 
It's okay to eat fish 
F#                           D 
'Cause they don't have any feelings

I believe the correct tuning for this song is Drop C (tune all notes a full step down then drop the low D to C), and the chords are E and C. When I play it according to this tab, it seems a half step too high in relation to the recording.
