I had to tab out this song off of Fush Yu, because it's one of the better 
tracks on the album.  Enjoy:

Third chorus: Play just ska part 4x, then add distorted guitar for 4x, end on G# Lyrics: I wanna try your shoes on, and wear them for a day. Learn to walk like you do, and see what I see. I'd talk like I knew something, that everyone wanted to hear. But you're the Fonz. . . The definition of icy, the measure of what's up. You could play the tuba, and everyone would clap. Well I can play the tuba, and they all just shake their heads. Cause you're the Fonz. . . I know it's over for me, I know it's over for me, I know it's over for me, I know it's over. Drove my car to the top floor, and stood at the edge. When I woke up in heaven, looked down and no one cared. But when you pulled your own trigger, they all gathered round to watch. Cause you're the Fonz. . . That's it! I hope this makes some sense to you. It's a fun song to play, so have fun, dammit. E-mail me and tell me how I'm doing, or if you have any changes or anything.
