--0---0------------------------3--2--0-----------

And you can play it all along the song (or nearly)
There are fastier parts but i can't find them for the moment.

If you got them, you can write them to me !


Here are the lyrics (i'm french, i don't understand all of them):

(scratched match sound and whisper)

Well,
You're CD collection looks shiny and costly,
How much did you payed for your bad motor cruisy ?
And How much did you spend on your black leather jacket ?
Is it you or your parents in this ????? brackets ?
Now tickets to concert and drinking at clubs
Sometimes for music that you haven't even heard of
and How much did you payed for your rock'n'roll Tshirt 
That proves you were there, that you heard of them first 

Now, how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ?
how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ? 
how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ? 
Oh tell me !

Oh yeah, all right (many times)

How much did you pay for the chock of his guitar
The one he rooflessly smashed at the end of the show
and how much will he pay for a brand new guitar
one which he rooflessly smashed at the end of another show
And how long will the workers keep building him new one
As long as they ?????? red, white and blue ones
And how long will the workers keep building him new one
As long as they ?????? red, white and blue ones

Oh yeah, all right (many times)

Engine black leather and hospital bills
Tatoo, removal and dozens of pills
????????????????????  for magic moments
but rock on completly with some brand new components


Now, how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ?
how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ? 
how do you afford your rock'n'roll lifestyle ? 
Oh right! Oh yeah!

Excess and rebellion
You're drinking what they're selling
Your self destruction doesn't hurt them

You can't convert them
You're happy to revealing him
You never really kill him huh

Excess and rebellion
You're drinking what they're selling 
Excess and rebellion
You're drinking what they're selling
oh yeah,
ALL RIGHT !!!!
