        I didn't figure out all of this song...only the verse riff. It is an
integral part of the song though so that fact should keep this from being a
worthless post. I'm including the lyrics as well so that should help the
cause.         The verse riff should be fairly accurate because it's similar
if not identical to what the guitarist played on SNL. The transcription is
fairly general but just play it loosely to make up for any inaccuracies. The
positions should be correct though. Write me with any
comments,questions,corrections or additions at

Repeat that riff throughout verse. There's a possibility that it might vary slightly at certain points. Just play along with the rhythm and it should sound fine. Even though I described the tone as clean electric, there may be a slight reverb or some other effect. I'm not a musician so I really don't know. It sounds fine clean though IMO. lyrics: Let me use your toothbrush Have you got a clean shirt My panties in a wad at the bottom of my purse I walk into the street The air's so cool I'm wired and I'm tired and I'm grinnin' like a fool I've been on the floor lookin' for a chair I've been on a chair lookin' for a couch I've been on a couch lookin' for a bed lookin' for a bed lookin' for my my My right hand, my right hand man(7x) If he can't fix it I don't know who can (main riff) woo hoo aw yeah Sesame(?)a salesman The cops on the block They know what I've been doin' They see the way I walk I wonder what they'd say now I wonder what they'd do They feel somebody want them The way I'm wanting you (bridge) (chorus) use me up if you think you can (sax solo/verse riff) (bridge) (chorus(extended variation)) If he can't fix it gonna find a boy who can Anyone who wants to post the chords for the bridge and chorus is more than welcome. Have fun with it.
