			     Rock Lobster - The B-52s


Tuning: EADG (Standard)

This is the full song up to 4:25 where the song changes quite a bit.
This song was originally not performed with a bassist, but it has a catchy
bass line so I've tabbed it out here the best I could :)

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster

The rest of the song up to 4:25 is almost all the same except from:

(2:18) Right after "He was in a giant clam!" (In place of the tilde (~) just repeat the 
previous).
