I've included the lyrics with the basic chords to the song (VERY simple), 
and then put tabs for various parts at the end. Hope someone finds some use
for this.

                        D
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
                    Bm       A        D 
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes





The opening riff, played throughout the verses, goes something like this:

     A            G

E----0--0--0-0-0-----------
B----2--2--2-2-2-----------
G----2--2--4-2-2--0-0-0-0-0
D----2--2--2-2-2--5-4-5-4-4
A----0--0--0-0-0--5-5-5-5-5
E--------------------------

The second guitar just plays plain old A major and G major chords in the 
open position.



During the choruses, one guitar plays the chords as indicated above 
(D-Bm), while the other guitar plays this:



 My heart says   yeah

E---0--0--0--0--------------------------
B---2--2--2--2--X--X--X-X-X--X--X--X-X-X
G---2--2--2--2--7--7--7-7-7--7--7--7-7-7
D---2--2--2--2--X--X--X-X-X--X--X--X-X-X
A---0--0--0--0--5--5--5-5-5--5--5--5-5-5
E---------------0--0--0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0





   Yeah  yeah  yeah  yeah  yeah

E-------------------------------------------
B----X-----X----X-----2-----X--X--X-X-X--X--X--X-X-X
G---14----12---11-----2-----7--7--7-7-7--7--7--7-7-7

A---12----10----9-----0-----5--5--5-5-5--5--5--5-5-5
E----0-----0----0-----------0--0--0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0


(Repeat the yeah, yeah, yeah... part 3x and then back to the A major and 
the verse riff.)


For the bridge, I've indicated D major and A major chords. This is how 
they're played. 

     D            A           D            A

E----0-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0

Subject: TAB: YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH by the wedding present

okay, this is kind of incomplete, but i'm working on it.  if i screwed up, 
or if you know the rest of this song, please either correct it here or 
e-mail me with the better version.

"yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah" by The Wedding Present
from the Island record "Watusi"

main riff:  this is the riff that is used throughout the intro and the 
verses.
e------------------------
B------------------------
G------------------------  the "5h7h5" bit is an A hammered to and released 
D------------------------  from the 7th fret (B)
A------------------------
E--5-5-5h7h5--3-2-3-2-2-2

this gets repeated ad infinitum through the verses.  the chorus, i think, 
is just an open D chord, but i'm not sure.  the song doesn't seem 
altogether that difficult.  now the groovy part--lyrics:

I really don't believe that this is happening
I tried and tried and tried to think it through
Oh, I heard what you said, I'm just not answering
I guess I'm scared of what I have to do (this line i'm not sure of)

You know that I'll come running to you when you call
You know ??????????? whatever you've got planned
You know you mix me up, I can't think straight at all
[chorus]
My head tells me I shouldn't be here and
My heart says "Yeah!"
"Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah"x3

instrumental (play main riff)

Hypnotize me with those crazy eyes of yours
You crack me open like a coconut
You've got me crawling 'round ?????????????
[chorus]  

bridge (which i can't play as yet)
I want you now, let's just take it all away}x2
I don't care how, I'll do anything you say }/

How on Earth did I get myself into this?
How much stranger is it gonna get?
How do you hold me prisoner with just a kiss?
[chorus]
repeat "Yeah"s through the end of the song and end with 5 "Yes"s
---------------------
that's all I could figure out.  i'm pretty sure of the lyrics, except for 
the ??????????? parts.  the singer mumbles.  a lot.  like i said, any 
additions or corrections, please either correct this file, or e-mail me 
with them.
