Notes: It's amazing how the main riff was written incorrect twice; this is the correct
riff and is easily found throughout the verses. This is a fun one, but its a little
unique in a sense. It shouldn't be too hard, but I'd suggest beginners take something a 
little easier.

The Song follows this format: Intro Verse Pre-Chorus Chorus Verse Pre-chorus Chorus Solo Verse Pre-Chorus Chorus (X2) Outro Lyrics: [Verse 1] Like most babies smell like butter His smell smelled like no other He was born scentless and senseless He was born a scentless apprentice [Chorus] Hey Go away Go away Go away [Verse 2] Every wet nurse refused to feed him Electrolytes smell like semen I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets There are countless formulas for pressing flowers [Chorus] Hey Go away Go away Go away [Solo] [Verse 3] I lie in the soil and fertilize mushrooms Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume You can't fire me because I quit! Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit [Chorus] Hey Go away Go away Go away Go away Go away Go away LEARNING SONG: If you've been playing enough, you'll have no issues. It may be a different style of play but nonetheless there is nothing to complain about. Beginners may have trouble with the speed of the power chords. If you do, I recommend you got to Drop D tuning and play it that way. It still may be fast but practice will bring pleasure. All in all, have fun.
