This is one of the best songs I have ever heard. It was also very hard 
to tab, and therefore may not be perfect. It's all in order.

You will need to hear the song to get the timing perfect, 
although the strumming pattern is a fairly standard off-beat ska rhythm. 
I've included where to strum down (/) and up (\) on the verses, even 
though it's just a rigid down-up pattern, but I didn't bother on the 
other parts because it is not as important as in the verses.

If I've replaced numbers with letters, it's because they are double 
figured numbers which would mess up the timing if typed in full. See 
the keys at the right sides of the bars for what the letters mean.
I've also written out the paticular chord that the letters are replacing
in brackets underneath for easier reference.

The 2 verses are clean and everything else is distorted.
