This is quite a strange one. For a start, there's very little keyboard throughout the
song which is quite unusual for Stranglers songs of their early period.
Also, there's hardly any guitar chords throughout the entire song with both bass
guitar and lead guitar playing little riffs.
For those interested however,
I've included the basic bass root notes as 5th chords.

 The song opens like this:

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

 Intro: bass guitar (A5 G5... E5 Eb5 D5), then guitar enters with intro riff

 Do you wanna marry a lumberjack, do you wanna freeze to death?

 Do you wanna be a beauty queen and rule the kingdom?


 (repeat intro riff)


 Let out all the prisoners 'cause that's a jubilee!


 (verse riff x2)


 Do you wanna marry a company director, do you wanna go to work?

 Do you wanna be a beauty queen and rule the kingdom?


 (repeat intro riff)


 Let out all the prisoners 'cause that's a jubilee!


 middle 8 riff (x2, D7no3rd Eb7no3rd):

 E-------------|-------------------|

 G----5----6---|--5--6---12---11-9-|
 D----7----8---|--7--8-------------|
 A----5----6---|--5--6-------------|
 E-------------|-------------------|

 Do you wanna marry money? Do you wanna use your body?

 Do you wanna stay at home on the range?


 (repeat intro riff)


 Do you wanna blow your mind? Do you wanna blow your hymen?

 Do you wanna blow exams? Do you wanna fix my muffler?

 It's got a hole in it


 (verse riff over keyboard solo x2)

 (intro riff)


 Ending riff:

 B--------------|--------------|
 G--------6s5---|-------8s7----|
 D------5-5s4---|-----7-7s6----|
 A--5s6---6s5---|-5s8---8s7----|
 E--------------|--------------|

(for those interested, the riff comprises of an Eb7 slid down to a D7,
 then an F7 chord slid down to an E7)

repeat ending riff until segue into 'Death And Night And Blood'
