        Elastica

Riff used throughout song:

Ex--------------------------------------------|
Bx--------------------------------------------|
Gx--------------------------------------------|
D--9-9-12-12-7-7-9-9---9-9-14-14-7-7-9-9------|
A--9-9-12-12-7-7-9-9---9-9-14-14-7-7-9-9------|
E--7-7-10-10-5-5-7-7---7-7-12-12-5-5-7-7------|

These notes are also individually picked from E up to D in the same chord formation by another guitar (or, 
their case, overdubbed).  It varies a little in some parts from the four main chords' pattern, but it's 
same four chords picked.

Rhythm speeds up when the vocals kick in.  Guitar punctuates key words in the lyric.

D--9-------------12---7----9---|
A--9-------------12---7----9---|
E--7-------------10---5----5---|

        "Work very hard, but I'm lazy..."

D--9-------------14---7----9---|
A--9-------------14---7----9---|
E--7-------------12---5----5---|

       "I can't take the pressure and it's starting to show..."

       Chorus uses main riff at top, till this part:

D--14-14-------------7-7-|
A--14-14-------------7-7-|
E--12-12-------------5-5-|

       "Make a cup of tea, put a record on..."

Little ditty riff played after chorus:

D--16--14--12/13/12-11-----------------------|
A-----------------------14--12--11/12/11-9---|
E--------------------------------------------|

  Here's another way of playing the main four chords:

Ex
G--------------------------------------------|
B------7-7----------------9-9----------------|
D--9-9-7-7-7-7-9-9---9-9-9-9-7-7-9-9---------|
A--9-9-5-5-7-7-9-9---9-9-7-7-7-7-9-9---------|
E--7-7-----5-5-7-7---7-7-----5-5-7-7---------|

It's much easier on the fingers.

This song is my theme song...
