                Notes: 1212 or 1111 is 12 12 or 11 11 played as 16th notes, not 1-2-1-2

this is a very easy song, you just need to get the rhythms correct, listen to the song 
get them down right

The bass comes in at 00:32, 00:59, 1:34, each time he plays riff 1 at least once, and 
a slight variation on it at least once

For David Monk's tone, boost mids, and bass, cut treble, use bridge pickup(if 
use a pick, he picks very heavily, its a major part of his tone

Lyrics:

It's been a blast
But we've been caught
Packing up your suitcase
Hard day, long face
Get the story right
Get the story right
Get the story down

Waltzing right out of the room
Be good when your parents stay over in June

It's been alright
But we have fought
Ways of the samurai
Parry, thrust, do or die
Not the fighting type
Not the killing kind
Get the story down

Waltzing right out of the room
Be good when your parents stay over in June

I heard the news
I'll send a card
Cellar door, Friday night
Long johns, hold tight
Put it on a page
Put it on a line
Get the story down

Waltzing right out of the room
Be good when your parents stay over in June
