LYRICS:

Can you take it?

Popeye's big punch knocks Pluto cold
Cartoon people don't go old
Yosemite Sam blows up his head
But you and me wind up dead
Dreamed I laid a toaster
Daddy caught me in the act

Can you take it?

Beauty queens get bigger all the time
Mamma's in a basket, crossed a double Yellow line
Magazines and T.V.s show us nice behinds
All the kind of stuff nobody ever finds
Headlines in the paper: "killed by rock n' roll"

Can you take it?

HELPFUL TIPS:

After the last “Can you take it”, the first riff is played for the remainder of the 
song... endlessly.

The pre-verse and verse riff sound like there is a second guitar playing the same thing, 
but an octave higher.

*When this riff starts, It sounds like the 6th fret chord is played five times, and the 
4th fret chord is played eight times... It's just a really weird pattern.

**The three empty dashes symbolize the break before playing. This is where the lyrics 
would be.

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
| '  Symbolizes the separation of certain notes (i.e.--playing the 3rd, then 1st fret of 
the same string won't look like playing the 31st fret)
