    O.K., kiddies: this is gonna be semi easy! Music only, 'cause I can't get most of the lyrics!! :(
    The song consists of two parts,A and B, repeated many times. The song is either in 3/4 or 12/8 time; I think it's 3/4, because it seems a bit slow for 12/8 (but then, I'm self-taught in music, so I could be wrong).
    'Break' is A,w/o lyrics or with guitar/cello solo (Pete Pavli is really good on that!) 'x2' means repeat twice

    I thought I might try and work out the lyrics, but most of it is impossible to work out. I guess you'll have to ask Mike or whoever wrote the song.
    Keep up the good work

        That's the prob that I had: I can only make out a few word here and there.

        I was thinking of doing like I did for 'Good Girl, Bad Girl,' put down what I know and put '?' for the rest, but then, most of it would be '?'s' with a few words scattered about!
