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.
(The Wedding Present)
A--G (4x)
[A]I really don't be[G]lieve that this is [A]happening[G]
I've [A]tried and tried and [G]tried to think it [A]through[G]
Oh [A]I heard what you s[G]aid I'm just not [A]answering[G]
I [A]guess I'm scared of [G]what I have to [A]do[G]
[A]You know that I'll come [G]running to you [A]when you call[G]
[A]You know I'll come when[G]ever you com[A]mand[G]
[A]You know you mix me [G]up I can't think [A]straight at all[G]
A G A (Hold on the A chord into chorus)
I can't stop thinking I shouldn't be here and
[A]My heart says [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah[A]
[A]You hypnotize me [G]with those crazy [A]eyes of yours[G]
[A]You crack me open [G]like a coco[A]nut[G]
[A]You've got me crawling [G]round and round you [A]on all fours[G]
A G A (hold on the A chord)
I can't stop thinking I shouldn't be here but
My heart says [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah[A]
[A]I want you [D]now--[A]ow, let's just [D]slip it all a[A]way
I don't care [D]how--o[A]w, I'll do [D]anything you [A]say
I want you [D]now--[A]ow, let's just [D]take it all [A]away
I don't care [D]how--[A]ow, I'll do [D]anything you [A]say
A (stop) A G
How on earth did I get myself into this
And [A]how much stranger [G]is it gonna [A]get[G]
And [A]how d'ya hold me [G]prisoner now with [A]just a kiss[G]
A G A (hold on A chord)
I can't help thinking I shouldn't be here yet
My heart says [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah[A]
My heart says [D]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [Bm]yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, [D]yeah
Yes, yes, yes, yes, [Bm]yes[A] [D]
The opening riff, played throughout the verses, goes something like this:
[A] [G]  

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

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

(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] 

Any question or comments are welcome.

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
 G------------------------ the "5h7h5" bit is an A hammered to and released
 D------------------------ from the 7th fret (B)

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
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 ?????????????
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?
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.
