---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Tabbed by: t3h Flick!
Email: talek_cornish@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard (EADGBe)

K. So, I'll give a little prelude to the song. the other version of this isn't even for
This is a bass song, but I'll give you the bass riff and the guitar chords to go along
it :)
Cause this is like my fave song ever :)

K. Bass riff: It's pretty constant throughout the whole song.
Verse:
G|-----------8------------6--------------11---------------|
D|--------------------------7----------------14--12--11\7-|
A|---------9---9--------9--------------12--12--12--12-----|
E|--7----7-------7----7--------10---10------------------7-|

Aiight? It's hell, I know. But thats what goes on while angel and collins are talking. 
I'll give you the chords for guitar now.

B                        D
New York City! (uh huh.) Centre of the universe. (sing it, girl)
B                         D
Times are shitty, but I'm pretty sure they can't get worse. (I hear ya.)
B                                  D
It's a comfort to know, when you're singing the "Hit the Road Blues"
     B                                         D              N/C
That anywhere else you could possibly go after New York would be:
N/C
A Pleasure cruise.

B                              D
Now you're Talkin'. (collins's trademark evil laugh, lol muahaha)
         B                        D
Well I'm thwarted by a metaphysic puzzle
        B                              D
And I'm sick of gradin' papers, that I know.
    B                             D
I'm shouting in my sleep I need a muzzle
    B                              D
And all this misery pays no salary so

Alright. Now that I got the verse covered, I can honestly say the the bass riff in the
is REALLY hard to hear. So I just play it in easy notes and wing it through the way I
it goes. So its wrong, meh, this isn't supposed to be a score or something. :P

Here it goes back to the main chorus riff. the thing I tabbed out at the front. err.
whatever. K. So bass players, keep doing that bassy thing that you do at this point. More
below.

B                        D
You teach? Yeah, I teach Computer age philosophy
        B                                 D
When my students would rather watch T.V.? America. (America)
         Bsus2                         D
You're a sensitive aesthete, Brush the sauce onto the meat
        Bsus2                        D
You can make the menu sparkle with a rhyme
        Bm9                       Dadd9
You can drum a gentle drum, I can seat guests as they come
         Bm9                     Dadd9

Hey this is really good, however I would like to say its easier to play that last part as:

G:-------11---9---7---6
D:0-0-7-----7---7---7---7
A:
E:

besides that, it's perfect, and fun to read, due to all your side comments :D

Hey, sorry, just wanted to point out that in the chorus, it's a bit different. For bar 8, instead of that, it goes (in quavers) D# F# C# F# B B
So, the way I played it is
G:8----6-------4---
D:--4----4---------
A:----------2------
E:-----------------

Plus the correction MCRkid22 made, it's pretty spot on!
