Stuart — Bass

This is a lot easier if you've seen and/or played Joe Jack's guitar
tab. However, this should get you through with no problems. The words
are given after the tab, so you know which parts I've called verse,
chorus and so forth.

Not 100% sure about that little bit at the end, but it sounds pretty
good to me.


Lyrics:
——————

verse:
You know what Stuart? I like you. You're not like the other people here
in the trailer park. Oh no, don't get me wrong, they're fine people, good
Americans.

pre—chorus:
But they're content to sit back, maybe watch a little Mork and
Mindy on channel 57. Maybe kick back a cool Coors 16—ouncer. They're
good fine people, Stuart. But they don't know what the queers are doing
to the soil.

verse:
You know that Johnny Werzner kid — the kid who delivers papers in the
neighborhood? He's a fine kid. Some of the neighbors say he smokes
crack, but I don't believe it. Anyway, for his 10th birthday, all he
wanted was a burrow owl...

pre—chorus:
...just like his old man. "Dad, get me a burrow owl. I'll never ask for
anything else as long as I live". So the guy breaks down and buys him a
burrow owl. Anyway at 10:30 the other night I go out into my yard and
there's the Werzner kid looking up in the tree. I said, "What are you
looking for?" He said, "I'm looking for my

chorus:
burrow owl." I say, "Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick! Everybody knows that
a burrow owl lives in a hole in the ground! Why the hell do you think they
call it a burrow owl, anyway?!" Now Stuart, do you think a kid like that
is gonna know what the queers are doing to the soil?

verse:
I first became aware of this, about 10 years ago, the summer my oldest boy
Bill Jr. died. You know that carnival that comes to town every year?
Well this year it came with a ride called the Mixer.


pre—chorus:
The man said "Keep your head and arms inside the mixer at all times." But
Bill Jr., he was a daredevil, just like his old man. He was leaning out
saying, "Hey everybody! Look at me, look at me!" POW! He was decapitated.
They found his head over by the...

chorus:
...snowcone concession. A few days after that, I open up the mail and
there's a pamphlet in there, from Pueblo, Colorado. And it's addressed
to Bill Jr. And it's entitled, "Do you know what the queers are doing to
our soil?"

verse:
Now Stuart, if you look at the soil around any large U.S. city with a big
underground homosexual population — Des Moines, Iowa, perfect example.
Look at the soil around Des Moines, Stuart. You can't build on it, you
can't grow anything in it.

outro:
The government says it's due to poor farming. But I know what's really
going on, Stuart. I know it's the queers. They're in it with the aliens.
They're building landing strips for gay Martians. I swear to God. You
know what Stuart, I like you. You're not like the other people, here in
the trailer park.

THE DEAD MILKMEN
Sri Lanka Sex Hotel — Bass

from Beelzebubba

Tabbed by: Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


For Christ's sake, why hasn't this song been tabbed yet?


Intro: Verse:

A A#Bm A A#Bm
G—————————————————— G————————————————————
D—————————————————— D————————————————————
A———7—————————————— A———7————————————————
E——————5—6—7——7—7—— E—————5—6—7———7—7—7——

There are 2 different rhythms involved with the same basic riff. The
intro and verse being slightly different. It's not easy to show the
exact timing, but I had a shot. The easiest way is to listen to the
recording, and you'll hear the emphasis on different notes. Speaking
for myself, I hear the emphasis on the Bm in the intro, and during
the verse, I hear it on the lead—in note. I will add that each time
you play a verse, you play the intro rhythm once first before
settling in to the verse rhythm. Confusing, but there you go. :)

THE DEAD MILKMEN
Punk Rock Girl — Bass

from Beelzebubba

Tabbed by: JARED (THEMEFROMAJACKYL@YAHOO.COM)
Re—tabbed by: Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


I owe a great deal to Jared's tab. I would have just put up his version
but there were a few bits and pieces that I thought were different, and
I didn't want to pass his work off as my own or mess with his tab too
much. (His version, like a couple of the others that I did steal, is
available at http://www.basstabarchive.com) So I at least tabbed and
wrote out the whole thing myself, and I've got quite a few extra notes
in the tab, especially in the latter part of the verse. Even so, I
think there could be a couple more that I've missed. For example, there
could be a few walks up or down here and there. This tab should do fine
though.

If you can't figure out where all the chords go with the words, the
guitar tab is a good place to start, and is available at this site.

THE DEAD MILKMEN
Bleach Boys — Bass

from Beelzebubba

Tabbed by: Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


This is one of my favourite Milkmen bass songs. The verse bit
is just way cool, though it is a bit tricky to play. I know some
people have asked if I can make the fingering a bit easier, and
in this case, I tried... but couldn't. It just made it more
complicated if I tried to take away the 4 — 7 stretch. If anyone
feels they can make an improvement, please let me know. However,
I've got long fingers and can reach fine, so :P

Again, as always I say that if you get confused about what goes
where, you can look at the guitar tab and that usually explains
the sections in more detail. If that doesn't work, just ask me.


Verse:
—————

lowE

The four parts above are played as follows.

A
I've got some buddies and we all drink bleach
A
You know we practice what we preach
D
We're not a drunken bunch of frat—boys
Trashed on beers
A
Or a stoned bunch of hippies
With no careers
E D A E(low)
I wanna drink bleach with a Georgia peach


Chorus:
——————
C G D F G A
G————————————————————————————————————————
D————————————————————————————————————————
A———3———————————5————————————————————————
E—————————3———————————1—————3—————5——————

Easy.

C G
Don't you wanna hang out with the Bleach Boys, baby?
D F
In a world where ministers murder golf pros
G A
Don't you wanna drink some bleach tonight?


Solo: with verse bass
————


Outro:
—————

This bit's just the same as the verse, so just go with that, except
obviously during the gap where there's no music. ;)

A A
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
A A
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
D D
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
A A
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
E D
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
A E(low)
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
A (single note)
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
NC
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
D
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
A
I'm so bored I'm drinking bleach
E D A
I am so booooooooooooooooooooooooored!


Then...

lowE A
G—————————————————————————
D—————————————————————————
A—————————————————————————
E———0—0————0—0————0—5—————

End on A.

Et voila. :) Not too hard, but pretty funky bass—wise. Hope it's right!

Main Verse Riff:

D——4—2——————2—4——2——5—5———
A———————2—5———————————————
E—————————————————————————

Those last two notes I'm not entirely sure of. It kinda gets
swallowed by the guitar and drums etc. I couldn't decide
whether it should be like this or just like the "other riff"
below. Or even a low G for the last 2 notes. Whatever you like.


Other Riff:

A:

I've never been 100% sure of this bit. I can't decide whether
to play AABB, or ABAB. You decide.

This bit is infuriating as I can't really hear the bass at
all. I'd say to just follow the guitar.

THE DEAD MILKMEN
The Guitar Song — Bass

from Beelzebubba

Tabbed by Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


Now, I say it a lot, but I can't really play bass and don't own one.
I just have a shot at working stuff out on my guitar. So be nice, as
this is the best you're gonna get. From me, anyway.


Intro:
—————
C F
G—————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D—————————————————————————————————————————3—3—3—2—0———
A———3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3———————————————————————————
E—————————————————————————————————————————————————————

This bit is curious. On this and the first line of the verse, the
bass goes very faint (or inaudible). I desperately want to play
an F in the gap, which you could do, but in the song it sounds like
it's missing, so I've done it accordingly.


Verse:
—————
C F
G—————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D—————————————————————————————————————————————————————
A———3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3———————————————3—3—3—2—0———
E—————————————————————————————————————————————————————

A———3—3—3—3—3—3—————————————3—3—3—3—3—3———————————————
E———————————————1—1—1—1—1—1—————————————3—3—3—3—3—3———


That's pretty much it! The solo bass is the same as the verse and the
outro kinda bit is just more C F and G as necessary. I don't think
there's any different stuff there.
