[Riff D]

This isn't anywhere close to the exact rhytm, but you can probably
figure the right one out by listening to it.

E:-------------------------------------------------------:

Here's the funky part of the solo it reminds me of that song that goes:
Do your ears hang low do they wobble too and fro, can you tie them in a
knot, can you tie them in a bow.
Well, it kinda does

I cant be arsed with the words, this is a tb site, not a lyrics site, if there are such

/ Offspring / I think this really serious song is about this low class-American
/ The Kids Aren't Alright / who looks back at his childhood in the American ghetto, and realizes
/ Americana / that he and his friends never really had a chance to move upwards
/_________________________/ through the American social classes. Quite thought-provoking.
