Pay attention to this - of the many tabs of this 1966 Troggs protopunker
that I've seen on the net, this is the only one that gets the 'wild thing,
I think I love you' break correct.  Which is all the more amazing when
you see how laughably simple it actually is.

As Dave Marsh said in _The New Book of Rock Lists_: 'Based on their playing
style, the Troggs [troglodytes, i.e. cave dwellers] in question would have
to be considered Neanderthals - Cro-Magnons had art.'  -- AWR

I think the hammer on the A chord is sufficient for the chorus, otherwise, this is an accurate tab. Not real complicated.
