This transcription and more is exclusive to and can be found at :-

intro: sound effects and synthesiser, before bass, drums and keyboards
       enter and play 4 bars... slide down from 12th fret to begin the
       main riff (listen to the recording and you'll see what I mean).
       also there's two guitar parts during the verses, which I'll
highlight in the lyrics. Chords are above the riffs. Intro is in E.

verse (main riff carries on throughout, bass plays E!)

                               (r.1a)
A woman in Wellington wet her whistle
With a wild man from way back when
                                      (r.1a)
She sucked her thumb and she held her head
For the man she didn't ken
A Nip in Nippon napped a nod
         (r.1b)
And knew Nomad near the nearside window of his Mitsubishi
            (r.1a)
His kid was scared he said he thought it was something new

                              (r.1b)
 A man on the main motor mile mesmerised much

 You know UFOs utilise euphoric united ecstatic
 Fantastic traumatic burning rubber blubber
        (r.1b)
 Blackout checkout for philandering sons of magic women

 His brain was blazed and amazed he said he thought
 It was something new
