The intro arrpeggios are played over the chords A and D.

A D
E---------------------------|
B----------8------------7---|
B--------9------------7-----| 2 times
D------7------------7-------|
A---0------------5----------|
E---------------------------|


The main riff is rock and roll itself. Perhaps one of the
most used rock rythyms going - it still sounds fresh on this
album - even in 1994 !!

A
E---------------------------------------|
B------3--3-po-2-----3-3-po-2-----------|
G------2--2----2-----2-2----2-----------|
D------4 -4-po-2-----4-4-po-2-----------|
A---0--0--0----0--0--0-0----0--3-4-0----|
E---------------------------------------|

po = pull off
Try experimenting with this rythym until you get the
right feel. IT IS FUN !!!

{c:verse:}
y' say that that you play too loud
well baby that's tough
y'say that you got too much
can't get enough
tell you that you look a fool
baby I'm a fool for you
say that you're my disease
well, shake your stuff

{soc}
{c:chorus:}
It's a R[G5]ock and [D/F#]Roll damn[A5]ation
[G5]ma's own [D/F#]whipping b[A5]oy
[G5]rock and [D/F#]roll damn[A5]ation
[D5]take a chance
[E5]while you still got a choice
{eoc}
{npp}
{c:verse2:}
you say that you want respect
honey grow up
everything that you've done for me
well thanks a lot
c'mon, get up off your bended knees
y'can , set your mind at ease
my temperature's running hot
and I've been waiting all night for a bite of what
you've got,and

{soc}
{c:Chorus: (Intro section over the lyrics)}
just a boy with a toy ( ??? )
come on and take your choice
cos you're way out of reach
living in your sin you gotta practise what you preach
{eoc}

{soc}
{c:Chorus:}
It's a R[G5]ock and [D/F#]Roll damn[A5]ation
[G5]ma's own [D/F#]whipping b[A5]oy
[G5]rock and [D/F#]roll damn[A5]ation
[D5]take a chance
[D5]while you still got a choice
{eoc}

{sot}
Back to the main riff for the solo which I can't get to
sound right - but I know that just as the vocals come
back in the solo is playing something like:

E-----------17------------|
B---------------------17--|
G---16b-16b---16b-16b-----| repeatedly.
D-------------------------|
A-------------------------|
E-------------------------|

try messing around with this. It's easier to stumble across
by playing than writing it down !!
