Guitar tabs with lyrics

<({[Disclaimer]})>
Do what ever you want with this tab.  I couldn't care less! Put it
on your site with your name on if it makes you feel good! I tabbed
this so people could appreciate the Offspring...not me!  If by saying
you wrote this infront of your girl/boyfriend makes you feel better then
thats cool by me as long as it makes you happy, and that, of course
is what music is all about...(i just suggest you delete this bit first!)

I saw them play this live (JAN 21 2001-anyone who wants to chat about it
mail me) in wembley and it was F*cking amazing! It totally made me
want to tab it so hear it is...  by the way, i'm 15 so if i can play this
after only playing guitar since May (7 months ago) then blatantly you can!
Don't get scared by the size of this tab! most of it is repeated shit loads!

Puting proper timing to this would be crazy so listen to it to get it right. ..
if you want the MP3 then (again) mail me and i'll see what i can do.
it is illegal after 24 hours though so on your head be it...
