I know this tab is probably wrong - it's the first full song I learnt, and then I heard
song and it's pretty darned sparse. But this way is really fun to play, it's based
power chords and lets you really pelt some sound out of your guitar - feel free to use 
Great fun for the beginner.

Watchin' the people get lairy
It's not very pretty I tell thee
Walkin' through town is quite scary
Not very sensible either
A friend of a friend, he got beaten
He looked the wrong way at a policeman
Would never have happened to Smeaton
Not very sensible,

Oh, I try to get to my taxi
Man in a tracksuit attacks me!
He said that he saw it before me
And wants to get things a bit gorey
Girls run around with no clothes on
To borrow a pound for a condom!
'F it wasn't for chip fat, they'd be frozen
They're not very sensible,
