Use .35sec delay with feedback for the repeat effect,  reverb,  some chorus.
Make sure it sounds clean.  Let notes ring through to hear the delay repeats,
play with song for correct timing.

Lyrics are written timed with the music to make it easy to follow.

**(Intro)** Bass line starts song, then this guitar intro kicks in:
