• Puddin’ Taine by Primus
  • Tabbed by Scott Martin, with some changes by Jim Wade
  • VERSE this part takes stamina, it starts to hurt after a little while. Plus, Les plays this on his six-string fretted, which has a skinny neck with the strings placed closely together, my six has a fat neck near the body. It makes this riff very tiring.

  • Pass the pen there Billy Bob, I'll write us up a song
    Or perhaps I'll pen a sonnet, if the melody sits all wrong
    Hand me down a crayon, and I'll draw a mighty oak
    'Cause of all my brother Masons, I'm the quickest with a joke
    Catch me in the right light, you'll see my ship¹s shaped
    to please
    And if I shank my trousers down, I'm hung just above the knees
    You may have difficulty catchin' breath, when you hear
    my weighty name
    I'm the one that told you, told you so, they calls me     Puddin' Taine

    Now step on up to dance the dance, and touch the hand that heals
    Like the tallest hog on Wall street, I'm a wheelin' all the
    deals
    They'll carve my face in marble, they'll etch my name in stone
    They'll paint my noble portrait, and historify my home
    You may have difficulty catchin' breath, when you hear
    my weighty name
    I'm the one that told you, told you so, they calls me
    Puddin' Taine
