Lyrics:

Alright

Yeah

Well now

(VERSE 1)
I must admit
I can't explain
Any of these thoughts
Racin' through my brain
It's true

Baby I'm howlin' for you

Alright

(VERSE 2)
There's something wrong
With this plot
The actors here
Have not got
A clue

Baby I'm howlin' for you

(CHORUS 1)
Da da da da da (x8)

(VERSE 3)
Mockingbird
Can't you see?
Little girls
Got a hold on me
Like glue

Baby I'm howlin' for you

Yeah

(VERSE 4)
Throw the ball
To the stick
Swing and miss
And a catcher's mitt
Strike Two

Baby I'm howlin' for you

Yeah

Yeah

(CHORUS 2)
Da da da da da (x8)

(SOLO)

(CHORUS 3)
Da da da da da (x8)

END

I've been trying to get this for awhile and I don"t think any of the tabs are correct. I could be wrong but where everyone is tabbing -0-3--5-0-- on E I think it should be
--------------
--------------
--------------
--------------
------3-------
-0-7----0----- try it, sounds good and gets your fingers in good position for majority of following notes.
