Explosivo   by Tenacious D   
Lyrics and guitar transcribed by Jarrod12 
 
notes: This song contains fairly easy chords, learning the rhythm is a bit tough but just listen and play along with it until you get it.  If you disagree with any of the lyrics then just change them yourself, this is the way it sounds to me. 
 
Part I: This is pretty basic barre chord action.  Warning, your hand may start to hurt or cramp by the end of this song.

(back to part II): just play the chords and the words come in at varied times, the chords get progressively faster until its madness. 
 
I am not one of you 
i come from a distance time 
I am known as the angel crrrrusher 
These pics that I give you  
were molded in satan's cauldron. 
Take these pics, they're souvenir satan pics. 
 
Explosivo!
