Really easy, but a great song. Even those who don't like the
Milkmen (blasphemy!) might like this. I think the C/G in the
second line of the verses is right, as from Joe's tabs he's
pretty fond of that chord, and I couldn't decide whether it
was a C or a G!

Note: I completely forgot to write what this chord is for
those that don't know! It is played as a normal C, but with
a G on the low E. Hence C/G is 332010 rather than x32010.
Hope that clears it up!

The only bit I'm worried about is the keyboardy chords at the
end. You could always just finish on the F... that'd work!

One of my absolute favourite Milkmen songs. Even though it's
one of the "straighter" songs. An absolute classic and the
humour is all in the delivery, from the quintessential Joe
guitar solo to the screaming at the end.
