tuned down half a step. I'm just going to start the tab after the intro and
rap sequence thing because frankly, it seemed out of place.

The acoustic part thing starts after the rap part at around 1:25 - 1:26
Each chord is kind of played to the chorus like the "i am the greatest man
that ever lived" part. You can easily figure the rhythm out for yourself.


e|------2---------2--0------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|2- 2--3--14-----3--0------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|2- 2--2--14--9--4--1------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|2- 2--0--14--9--4--2------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|0- x-----12--7--2--2------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-- 4---------0-----0------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then the part ending with "Sleep tight in your cot..." and after it is..
(The guitar doesnt really play till that fill thing but the chords can be used
as..)

e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|---------777---------444-----777--|
D|-777 777-777-777-222-444-222-777--|
A|-777 777-555-777-222-222-222-555--|
E|-555 444-----555-000-----000------|

                              ^
                              ^
Right towards the end like between the E and D is the fill which i think is


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----7h9-9b11b9-7h9p7 777-777-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|7h9----------------- 777-777-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------- 555-444-The guitar stops here until the next fill.----------------|
                       ^
                       Then the guitar kicks in for like 2 of the chords w/ distortion on..


That verse does change though on the second time. the guitar still isnt
playing till the fill but these are the chords for the 2nd part of the verse.
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------777---------666-777---------------------------------------------|
D|-777-777-777-777-222-666-777---------------------------------------------|
A|-777-777-555-777-222-444-555-Theres a fill towards the end of this too.--|
E|-555-444-----555-000-----------------------------------------------------|

Then it picks up and gets a little faster...(like the part where he goes HEYYYYYY)
e|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------7-----------------6-----7--------------------------|
D|-7-----7-----7(x8)-7-----2-----6(x8)-7(x8)-7--------------------| (x2)
A|-7(x8)-7(x8)-5-----7(x8)-2(x8)-4-----5-----7(x8)-It just loops -|
E|-5---- 4---- ------5-----0-----------------5--------------------|

Then the "I can take on, anybody," part...
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------- 77x77x------------------------------------44x44x44x44x----------------|
D|-77x77x77x77x-77x77x-77x77x-22x22x-77x77x-66x66x-44x44x-44x44x44x44x-22x22x22x22x---|
A|-77x77x77x77x-55x55x-77x77x-22x22x-77x77x-66x66x-44x44x-22x22x22x22x-22x22x22x22x---|
E|-55x55x55x55x--------55x55x-00x00x-55x55x-44x44x-22x22x--------------00x00x00x00x---|

Then the chorus but kind of slower..
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------7-----------------6-----7--------------------------------|
D|-7-----7-----7(x8)-7-----2-----6(x8)-7(x8)-7--------------------------|        (x2)
A|-7(x8)-7(x8)-5-----7(x8)-2(x8)-4-----5-----7(x8)-It just loops twice -|
E|-5---- 4---- ------5-----0-----------------5--------------------------|

Sorry but im not gonna tab out the part where he talks either about his career, no 
i love weezer
but that part of the song is pretty cheesy.  Then theres like the falsetto part and then
the ending chorus..which is faster
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|-------------7------------------7------|
D|-7-----7-----7(x4)-7-----2------7(x4)--|
A|-7(x4)-7(x4)-5-----7(x4)-2(x12)-5------|
E|-5-----4-----------5-----0-------------|

Then the amazing endind..  the radio-i part starts here
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------7----------------6666------6666------6666------6666--|
D|-7-----7-----7(x4)-7-----2222-6666-2222-6666-2222-6666-2222-6666--|
A|-7(x4)-7(x4)-5-----7(x4)-2222-4444-2222-4444-2222-4444-2222-4444--|
E|-5-----4-----------5-----0000------0000------0000------0000-------|

This is end when the guitar sounds like the words or however you want to say it.
