    Sabotage

    The Beastie Boys

     

    Underlined lyrics = Band yells in unison

     

    Intro:

    / Ab5 - - - / x2 (Drum hits on the 1)

    / Ab5 - - - / x4 (Lots of hits)

     

    Ab5 (4)

    I can't stand it, I know you planned it

    I'mma set it straight, this Watergate

    I can't stand rockin' when I'm in here

    'Cause your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear

     

    Ab5 (4)

    So while you sit back and wonder why

    I got this frickin' thorn in my side

    Oh my god, it's a mirage

    I'm tellin' y'all, it's sabotage

     

    / Ab5 - - - / x4 (Lots of hits)

     

    So, so, so, so listen up, 'cause you can't say nothin'

    You'll shut me down with a push of your button

    But, yo, I'm out and I'm gone

    I'll tell you now, I keep it on and on

     

    Gorgeous melodic solo:

    / (n.c.) - - - / x4

     

    Ab5 (4)

    'Cause what you see, you might not get

    And we can bet, so don't you get souped yet

    Scheming on a thing, that's a mirage

    I'm trying to tell you now, it's sabotage

     

    / Ab5 - - - / x3 (Lots of hits)

    / Ab5 - (hold) - / (fermata)

     

    Breakdown:

    / Ab5 - - - / x4 (bass only)

    / Ab5 - - - / x8 (full band)

    Why????????    Our backs are now against the wall

     

    Ab5 (4, lots of hits)

    Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage

    Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage

    Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage

    Listen all y'all, it's a sabotage

     

    Ab5 (4)

    I can't stand it, I know you planned it

    I'mma set it straight, this Watergate

    But I can't stand rockin' when I'm in this place

    Because I feel disgrace because you're all in my face

     

    Ab5 (4)

    But make no mistakes and switch up my channel

    I'm Buddy Rich when I fly off the handle

    What could it be, it's a mirage

    You're scheming on a thing, that's sabotage

     

    / Ab5 - (hold) - / (Lots of hits)
