Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Bass Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Take a chance on something star you gotta
   All the live long day
   If I had to name one thing you think data
   Be hard pressed to say
   You can't say I'm gushy, At least you know what I think
   I know that I'm lucky, I know you're on the brink
   You got it good good good, You got it good so good
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   You make up ridiculous words which mean exactly nothing
   I know just what you mean and that's the funny thing
   It's understood, It's understood
---> Play Chorus over:
   Buddy buddy buddy I know why you wander
   Through the sweetness on the ground
   The sweetness of the flowers
   You make your way on a cloudy day
   You've got to move
   The world you prove is too sweet, yeah
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   We parted much too soon I know but that's how it goes
   There's someone better out there for you and me
   Can't wait to get on the road and feel the shows
   And be like phenomenon number 1 and 2 and 3
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast
   But I am the guy that could give you the most
   It's good good good, It's understood
---> Play Chorus over:
   Buddy buddy buddy I know why you wander
   Through the sweetness on the ground
   The sweetness of the flowers
   You make your way on a cloudy day
   You've got to move
   The world you prove is too sweet, yeah
---> Play Pre-Solo
---> Solo over Chorus


** Note: The outtake version does not contain SA, and the Chorus is only played
   twice. The song structure looks like this:

---> Bass Intro
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Take a chance on something star you gotta
   All the live long day
   If I had to name one thing you think data
