Tuning: Detune 3rd string (G string) down one semi-tone to F#

I've watched live performances and tried to get this as close to the way Win plays it as possible.

INTRO/VERSE (played in harmonics)

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


CHORUS (Strum the following as necessary, Win only plays the root notes but you can play 
chords, it's up to you)

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-0------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-5-------7---------12----12-----------------------------------------------|
|-4-------7---------12----12-----------------------------------------------|
|-5-------7---------12----9------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

     Our  mother    should've
     Just named you Lai   ka
     It's for your  own   good

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-0---------------12----7--------------------------------------------------|
|-5------7--------12----7--------------------------------------------------|
|-4------7--------12----7--------------------------------------------------|
|-5------7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

     It's for the neighbourhood

For the bit that goes: Older brother bit by a vampire etc just go between these 2:

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12-------------------7-7-7-7-------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12-------------------7-7-7-7-------------------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12-------------------7-7-7-7-------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


BRIDGE (Again strum the following as necessary, you can hit the low E if you want)

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--9--------7----7------4----12--9------------------------------------------|
|--7--------5----4------2----12--9------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

        When daddy comes home you always start a fight

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7-------------------------------|
|------------------------12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7-------------------------------|
|--9------------7--7-----12-12-12-12--7-7-7-7-------------------------------|
|--7------------5--4--------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

        So the neighbours can dance in  the                        police
                                                            Disco                   lights

The whole song is made up of those parts so it shouldn't be too difficult to get. Enjoy!
