Bass tabs with lyrics

Album: Lex Hives
Bassist: Mattias Bernwall a.k.a. Dr. Matt Destruction
Writer(s): Randy Fitzsimmons
Released 1 June, 2012
This is one of the cooler songs off of The Hives' most recent album. It's pretty easy for bass, too. There are
a few main parts that repeat which comprise the whole song.


Intro. Pretty easy, follows the root notes and ducks out when the guitar does the minor pentatonic riff.
E|-------------------|
D|-------------------|   x4
A|-----3b00----------|
E|-00-------3b00-----|

The last time after the drum part, the bass just plays one hit on the open E, like so:
G|------------|
D|------------|
A|------------|
E|-0----------|


The main verse line is the most prominent part. It comes in after the drums and vocals start. The first part
starts on the "health-" syllable in the line "A healthy appetite is good for one and all." The second half
starts on "be" in the "I should be at peace with the world, baby" line. The timing is similar for the repeating
of this part. The middle part

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|----------------------------|

The Chorus is the same as the intro, minus the single hit on the E.
E|-------------------|
D|-------------------|   x4
A|-----3b00----------|
E|-00-------3b00-----|

The verse parts repeat again, but the order is a bit different.

The outro starts the same as the intro/chorus, but it has another part included.
