Chorus: the main chord progression is as follows (2 beats for each chord):

        A  C  D  E  G  (yes, 10 beats in all). This is played twice (1st
chorus) and is accompanied by a riff similar to this: 

E-----------------------------------|--------------------------------
B-----------------------------------|-13-12-13-14--------------------
G------14-12------------------------|--------------14-13-12----------
D--------------14-13-12-------------|-----------------------14-13-12-
A------------------------14--13--12-|--------------------------------
E-----------------------------------|--------------------------------
   1 & 2 ... 
                    another guitar is playing this during the 1st chorus:
E-----------------|---(w/ vibrato)------------------------------------
B-----------------|---------------------------------------------------
G-----------------|-----14----14--------------------------------------
D-----------------|--14----14-----repeated all through the chorus-----
A---14---13---12--|---------------------------------------------------
E-----------------|---------------------------------------------------
                     1  2  3  4 ... 

then back to verse (same as first)

2nd chorus: plays A C D E G progression 4 times along with similar guitar riff:

E-----------------------------------------------------
B-13-12-13-14-----------------------------------------
G--------------14-13-12*------------------------------
D-------------------------14-13-12*-------------------
A-----------------------------------14---13---12---etc...(improvise)
E-----------------------------------------------------

*slight bend and release on these notes (done very quickly)
  
 The other guitar plays:
   (as before)
   for the 1st half of the chorus,  then for the 2nd half 
        (ie. 10 beats)
E-------------------------------------------------------
B-----(w/ vibrato)----------------------------14----12--
G-------14----14---------------------------14----14----- 
D----14----14----etc..----------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------
     1  2  3  4 ...                        1  2  3  4 ... 

Then after that, you're on your own.

LYRICS:


Oh no, pop is dead, long live pop
It died an ugly death by back-catalogue
And now you know it gets you nowhere
And now you know, you realize

Oh no, pop is dead, it just gave up
We raised the dead, but they won't stand up.
And radio has salmonella
And now you know you're gonna die

So what pop is dead, it's no great loss,
So many facelifts, his face flew off.
The emperor has no clothes on,
And his skin is peeling of

Oh no, pop is dead, long live pop
One final line of coke to jack him off
He left this message for us...
He's dead ! He's dead ! He's dead !
