 This is the most accurate tab of Teenage Lament '74, the only thing I couldn't get was

I got, enjoy!

Is this the coolest way to get through your teens
Well I cut my hair weird, I read that it was in
I looked like a rooster that was drowned and raised again!”

Well, I thought that fifteen was gonna be a breeze
I picked up my guitar to blast way the clouds
