Rat Race
	(words & music by Roddy Radiation)


Basically, I will only transcribe the chords to this song.  But, if this is
right, this is the bass transcription for the verse:

   C#m          G#m          A            B

G ------------|------------|------------|--------------||
D ------------|-------1----|------------|--------------||
A -4--2-----2-|----2-----2-|----4--7--4-|-2--------2-2-||
E -------4----|-4----------|-5----------|----4--2------||

I am not too sure about the chorus bass notes, so I will not transcribe them.
 Basically:

Intro:  C#m (the piano plays the notes C#, G#, G)
	  C#m   A-A-B

C#m   G#m   A   B

C#m                    G#m        A                       B
You~re working at your leisure to learn the things you~ll need
C#m                   G#m            A        B
The promises you make tomorrow carry no guarantee
C#m                   G#m          A         B
I~ve seen your qualifications, you got a Ph.D.
C#m              G#m     A                   B
I~ve got one art O-level, it did nothing for me

E       B       A
Working for the rat race
E               B            A
You know you~re wasting your time
E       B       A          C#m
Working for the rat race
          A      A  B
You~re no friend of mine


You plan your conversation to impress the college bar
Just talking about your mother and daddy~s Jaguar
Wear your political T-shirt and sacred college scarf
Discussing the world situation, but just for a laugh

You~ll be working for the rat race
You know you~re wasting your time
Working for the rat race
You~re no friend of mine

Break:  C#m  G#m  A   B  (only repeated so many times)

Working for the rat race
You know you~re wasting your time
Working for the rat race
You~re no friend of mine

Just working at your leisure to learn the things you don~t need
The promises you make tomorrow carry no guarantee
I~ve seen your qualifications, you got a Ph.D.
I~ve got one art O-level, it did nothing for me

Working for the rat race
You know you~re wasting your time
You~re working for the rat race
You~re no friend of mine
