I only added some improvements here and there to make it more accurate.

[Main riff]
   D5  C5 D5   D5  C5 D5   F5 D5 C5
e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------|
D|-0-0-10-12---0-0-10-12---15-12-10-|
A|-0-0-10-12---0-0-10-12---15-12-10-|
D|-0-0-10-12---0-0-10-12---15-12-10-|

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


[Chorus]
A5                    G5                  *
I've got my telescope head in the haystack
A5                    G5              **
I'm tired of your dodgeball circus act
A5                    G5                 (no chord)
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

(Note: During the chorus an overdubbed guitar plays those little phrases between the lines:

   *       **
e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|

[Main riff]
Here comes that awful feeling again
Make way for monster jealousy
The strong man kicked sand into my breakfast cereal bowl
I'd spelled your name with Oatios,
He messed it, messed it, messed it, messed it up


[Chorus]
A5                    G5                  *
I've got my telescope head in the haystack
A5                    G5               **
I am tired of your dodgeball circus act
A5                    G5                 (no chord)
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

[Bridge]
D5 F5 A5 C5

       D5    F5    G5  A5 (G5 slide to F5)
You're mean, mean, mean
    D5     F5     A5    C5
You tease, tease, tease me

D5 F5 G5 A5

[Main riff]
If I were you I'd really run from me
I'd 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

[Chorus]
A5                    G5                  *
I've got my telescope head in the haystack
A5                 G5                  **
I am tired of your dodgeball circus act
A5                       G5              *
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark
A5                       G5              (no chord)
Put pepper in my coffee, I forgot to bark on command

[Bridge]
D5 F5 A5 C5

       D5    F5    G5  A5 (G5 slide to F5)
You're mean, mean, mean
    D5     F5     A5    C5
You tease, tease, tease me
Do you smell jealousy?
Do you smell jealousy, jealousy, jealousy?

D5 F5 G5 A5

B|-----------|
G|-----------|
