VERSES

Repeat this until the chorus.

e|---------------------------------|B|---------------------------------|G|---------------------------------|D|---------------------------------|A|-----------------------XX----5---|E|-0---0---0---0---0---0-xx5h7-----|
There's a part later on the verse, sort of in the background, that goes like this:
e|-------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------|G|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-|D|-------------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------------|
e|-------------------------------------------------|B|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-|G|-------------------------------------------------|D|-------------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------------|
CHORUS Play twice.

FIRST GUITAR SOLO (between second and third verses) To get it to really sound right, you'll need to have a delay on as well as a Wah going the whole time.
e|----------------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------------|G|-14b16r--14b16r------12------12----12------12-|D|------------------14------14----14------14----|A|----------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------|

SECOND GUITAR SOLO (between second and third chorus) For this part, Tom is using a Whammy pedal--an octave up I believe--with a delay, rocking the Whammy down into each note (then pulling up right after each note)
e|---------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------|D|-15--17--18--20--22----22--20--18--20--17----|A|---------------------------------------------|E|---------------------------------------------|
e|-----------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------|G|------------16---------------------------|D|-19---16---------16----16--17--19--21----|A|-----------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------|
Continuing with the Whammy (held down throughout) and the delay, this time he plays the notes as harmonics.
e|-----------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------|G|----7--12--7-----7--12--7-----7--12--7-----7--12--7--|D|-5------------5------------5------------5------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------|
Now for this part he lets go of the Whammy and just kind of goes nuts with the delay and as such it's a bit overwhelming to try to dissect (though it sounds awesome) but here goes. It is basically a bunch of hammer-ons progressing up the strings, that much I can tell.
e|-------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------------|D|-------------------------5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-|A|-5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-5h6h7-------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------------|
e|-------------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------7h8h9-7h8h9-7h8h9-7h8h9-|G|-6h7h8-6h7h8-6h7h8-6h7h8-------------------------|D|-------------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------------|
e|-8h9h10-8h9h10-8h9h10-8h9h10-------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------6h7h8-6h7h8-|A|-----------------------------5h6h7-5h6h7-------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------|
e|---------------------------9h10h11-9h10h11-|B|-------------8h9h10-8h9h10-----------------|G|-7h8h9-7h8h9-------------------------------|D|-------------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------------|
Delay off for this part, bring back in the Wah
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------<>---------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--16b17r--|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
e|-------------------------------------|B|-16----15--12--15--12----------------|G|-----------------------14--12--14----|D|-------------------------------------|A|-------------------------------------|E|-------------------------------------|
This next part is weird, I think what he's doing is his trademark DJ scratch but this time with a fast, short delay effect on top of it. For those who don't know, to do said DJ effect, you'll need a guitar with multiple volume knobs. Turn one to zero and then use the toggle switch as a killswitch to flick back in forth in an awesome rhythmic fashion while rubbing the strings with your other hand, Wah depressed the whole time for white noise. Wah stays on for the next part.

For the last part, strum the 21st fret on the high E string rapidly while slowly leaning in on the Wah pedal. Delay is on and echoes out into the final chorus. SONG STRUCTURE 1. Verse 1 2. Chorus 3.

Chorus LYRICS Well I gotta new kinda squaredance rap Gonna talk smack, flash my gat I'm finna spit and hold my dick And heat shit up like a thermostat Grab your partner by the chaps Give your partner a pimp slap To symbolize the ghetto trap Step to the right, give three clabs Kids jam-packed in tenement shacks Ain't shit cooking on the stove but crack This is the bat this hell begat 'Cuz bosses are cleptomaniacs [Chorus] Two by two, promenade Duck from a B-1 bomber raid Ain't bout the plans Osama made Banks getting paid off petrol trade Circulate, dosey-do How much cash could an O-Z grow Till all are fed and all have beds My skin is black, my star is red FBI coming round outside Which one of us finna die tonight Is we finna fight over crumbs to bite Or make a whole mutherfuckin world ignite Everybody throw them bows Right upside your partner's nose Right now you got bloody clothes Crabs in the barrel, so the story goes Think of all their savage acts Grabbing scratch from average cats Bueraucrats with strings attached Walk in place, light the match Everybody get down low Bout the level of your toes These dance moves we usually do Are not the ones that we have chose Grab on to that beat and grind And try your best to stay alive We can run but we can't hide Might as well just stay and fight [Chorus]
