Okay, so I've reworked this a little to simplify how to read it since my last post.
is a great song to crank on the distortion and let it rip.

This first part is the intro, and the rhythm for all the verses.  Below I've included
various fills that get played throughout the song.  Have fun!

Play 2 times for the intro, then 4 times for the first verse.
Intro/Verse:
     e    e    e    h+e   e   e    e      q   e    e    e    e    e    e   h+e  e   e    e   q   e    e    e

Play Intro/Verse once before the next verse, then 4 times for the 2nd verse.
Then play the chorus again.
Then Bridge.

Bridge:

Play Intro/Verse once before last verse, then 4 more times during the last verse.
Then play chorus again, except the 3rd bar is played like this:

       q     .q   e      q   .q   q    e    q       q   .q    e   e    e

Then the last bar is played with the 4-beat rest at the end.
Then play the first bar of the Bridge 4 times, and end with the opening riff.

Lyrics:
Verse 1--
Here comes, that awful feeling again
Welcome the ugly animal
I hold my breath to watch you swing
My high rope acrobat ball-and-chain
I'm not afraid, I messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

First Chorus:
I've got my telescope hid in the haystack
I'm getting tired of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee I forgot to bark on command

Verse 2:
Here comes that awful feeling again
Make way for monster jealousy
The strongman kicked sand into my breakfast cereal bowl
I'd spelled your name in Oateo's, he messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up

Second Chorus:
I've got my telescope hid in the haystack
I am tired of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee I forgot to bark on command

Verse 3:
If I were you I'd really run from me
I really really wish that I were you
When I get loose I'll climb a tree
And drop a load on your head
This monster in me makes me retch, you messed it, messed it up

Final Chorus:
I've got my telescope hid in the haystack
I'm tired of your dodgeball circus act
Put pepper in my coffee I forgot to bark
Put pepper in my coffee I forgot to bark on command

Outro:
Do you smell jealousy? (repeated)
