This is one of the best songs by one of the best bands in punk rock history. And, like
great bands, they broke up before getting the praise that was due. Anyway, I just figured
how to play the song and thought everyone else should know too. I didn’t write out the 
as I assume you can figure that out for yourself by listening to the song. I tried
place the chords as close to the right timing as possible, but you’ll have to figure 
out too. Enjoy!

Chords used:
   E5  F#5  A5  B5  D5  D  Dmin A

A5              E5                F#5

I get a first place loss, and the last laugh.

 Let’s be simple creatures tonight.

 Roll the windows down, turn up the tunes and scream.

 There’s somethin’ beautiful about fuckin’ up.

_ = pause after word/hold word
~ = hold note/chord
[???] = I don’t actually know what he says here, and the lyrics aren’t online, so this
my best guess. It sounds like either [a view] or [of you], not that either of those make
but meh.
