   Pump it up when you don't really need it
   Pump it up until you can feel it

REFRAIN

VERSE

Down in the pleasure centre...
listen to the propaganda...
There's nothing underhand...

CHORUS

Pump it up...

REFRAIN AND BRIDGE
REFRAIN

VERSE

She's been a bad girl...
Though you try to stop it...
You wanna torture her...
All the things you bought for her...

CHORUS

Pump it up...

Out in the fashion show...
you put your passion out...

REGULAR VERSE

Fall into submission...
No use wishing now...

END WITH ALTERNATING CHORUS AND REFRAINS
========================================

NOTES:

-Turn your metronomes to 140 bpm for this one. 
-The x's stand for 8th rests. 
-The bassist on the recording makes some variations from 
what I wrote down especially the second or third time through. 
-But this should give you a good idea of what it's supposed to 
sound like.
-His chorus riff is pretty weird with the rhythm even though 
it's almost all eighth notes. It makes sense after a while.
