OK the song start with 2 chords wich goes like this:

e|------------|B|------------|G|---9\---1---| (1-2-3-4!)D|---9\---2---|A|---7\---2---|E|--------0---|
Let the E-chord ring for a few seconds and then the first verse starts:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|

Then back to:

Lyrics: Couldn't keep a secret Got a concrete skull Couldn't shut up you're an imbecile You're an ugly dog there's Nothing to gain You couldn't shut up got a Bad bad brain Couldn't hold your tongue You were just too young Like a two year old you told You told You are all the same jelly Bean brain Every one's a secret nerd Every one's a closet lame Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy Don't want to work in a hot dog stand Be a busboy messenger or a doorman It's an abstract world you're an Abstract man Abstract city don't give a damn ----------------------------------------------------------------------------OK that was it, I hope I helped you out with this song. Try to use only downstrokes, it sounds way better! It isn't a difficult song but still very cool like all Ramones-songs! Please (my first tab!) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
