The run at the end of each verse bass section is done by hammering on from the open E, 
an extra note which sounds like it is played fast but is actually quite easy using the 
on.  The chorus section is played similarly but the run is slightly different.

There is also a small run up to the B flat at the end of the chorus which leads you into 
"lay down that boogie.................................." Etc. which is played by the bass.

As follows:


[Verse Section]               [Pre-Chorus]
g------------------|          g---     -------|
d----0-2-----------| repeat   d--- out -------|
a--------------5h7-|          a---     -------|
e-0------0-3h5-----|          e-0-     -0-1-2-|
  1 2  3   4


[Chorus]
g------------------|
d----3-5-------3h5-| repeat 4 times, then...
a--------0-3h5-----|
e-3----------------|
  1 2  3   4

g------------------|-------------|
d----3-5-----------|-----8-8/----| then...
a------------------|-------------|
e-3--------3--5----|6------------|
  1 2  3   4        1  2   3   4

g--------------------------------------------------------|---|
d-14-12---------12---------------------------------------|---|
a----------14--------------12---10---12-13-12-10---------|---|
e------------------------------------------------12---10-|-0-|
  Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die

...then you're back into the verse.
