Hey, I've seen various tabs of this song.  Some of them are
fairly close but some of them are pretty off.  I'm in a Ska
band myself and we cover this song...so I think I'll try to
tab it out the right way...

Intro (you can mess around with it if you want)

G:-------------------------------------------------|
D:-------------------------------------------------|
A:------------5---55---76-----------5--567-567-567-|
E:-5---55--57-------------5--55--57----------------|

Then when the Terry goes "Spending Money...On!" play:

G:------------------|
D:------------------|  * Keep in mind that this is played
A:----5-----6-------|    after every chorus
E:-77---7-----------|


Verse (now the fun starts!) note, there is no bass
during the first verse when Terry is singing...

G:--------------------------|-----------7-7-----|
D:--------------------------|-------------------|
A:-7----------7-----5---5---|-7---------------5-|
E:---0-0--5-7-----7---7---7-|----0-0--------7---|

*** (^) signifies a slide (7th to 10th fret) ***

G:--------------------------|---------------12---11---7---8-|
D:--------------------------|-------------------------------|
A:-7----------7-----5---5---|-7--------7^10----9----5---6---|
E:---0-0--5-7-----7---7---7-|----0-0------------------------|

Little fill before the first chorus

G:-------------------|
D:-----4---5---6-----|
A:-------------------|
E:-0-2---3---4-------|

Chorus

G:---------------------------|-----------------------------|
D:-77--------7------44-55-77-|-77--------7-----------------|
A:----9--7-9----5-5----------|----9--7-9----5-5--33-22-00--|
E:---------------------------|-----------------------------|

*Play first segment again followed by the
"Spending Money...On!" riff


Bass Solo

segment 1                   segment 2

G:-------------------------|--------7-77-7-777-|
D:-------------------------|-------------------|
A:-7----------7----5---5---|-7-----------------|
E:---0-0--5-7----7---7---7-|----0-0------------|

segment 3 (slide!)        segment 4 (notice the slide)

G:---------12^13--12-13--|--------------------------|
D:---------11-12--11-12--|-------------5----6-------|
A:-7---------------------|-7--------4^6-6--7-75-----|
E:----0-0----------------|----0-0-------------------|

segment 5

G:---7---8---9---10---11---10---9---8--|
D:-------------------------------------|
A:-5---6---7---8----9----8----7---6----|
E:-------------------------------------|

Bass Solo segment order: 1,2,1,3,1,4,1,5
* Segment 3 is using chords (Hit 2 notes at one time.)


Then the third verse starts...there's no bass at first...but
when Terry screams "and the beer tasters just like p**s!", he
uses this fill to get back into his bassline...

G:----12---11---7---8----|
D:-----------------------|
A:-10----9----5---6------|
E:-----------------------|

Outro

G:--------------|
D:--------------|
A:----5---6--7--|
E:-77---7-------|

Well I hope you agree that if this is not perfect, that
it's pretty close.  Enjoy...and don't forget the slides
because they're vital.
