up and down the puppies' hair
fleas and ticks jump everywhere
'cause of original sin

down the hill fell jack and jill
and you came tumbling after
'cause of original sin

rip away the tears
drink a hope to happy years
and you may find a lifetime's passed you by

Chorus
------

what would you say don't drop the big one
if you a monkey on a string drop don't cut my lifeline
if you a doggie on a chain don't bite the mailman
what would you say

Verse
-----

i was there when the bear ate his head
thought it was a candy everyone goes in the end
knock knock on the door who's it for
there's nobody in here look in the mirror my friend

Pre-Chorus
----------

i don't understand at best and cannot speak for all the rest
the morning's rise a lifetime's passed me by

Verse
-----
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dave_matthews_band/what_would_you_say_crd.html ]
every dog has its day every day has its way of being forgotten
mom--it's my birthday what would you say

Tab by David Sweet


Std. Tuning.

/   - slide up
\   - slide down
^   - bend
_   - tie/slur
(#) - ghost note

There are two guitars playing at the beginning of the song.  This is the 
basic riff from the guitar in the left speaker.  The right guitar is the 
same, but perhaps with more percussive noise.  Also, the second time this 
riff is played it is a little different, but then reverts back to the 
original form for the rest of the song.  Maybe it's just me, but the 
second version sounds like it's just a mistake.


Verse:

  A9                    A9/G
                             v--C# bent up about 1/4
---X--------0_-------------------------------||
---X--------/5----5-------2-2^_2-------------||
---X---4\(0)------4--------------4-2--------*||
---5-5------------5------------------2------*||
---X--------------X--------------------------||
---5------------5-5-----3--------------------||
    
 
Bridge:
Here the meter switches to 3/4.  The notation is supposed to resemble 
slash ryhthm notation.  The chord forms are all standard 6th-string-root 
barre chords.

F              G              Am             G

/  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / /  |  /  / /  / / 
|  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |  |  |  | |  | |
'  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---  |  '  ---  ---

(back to 4/4)

F    E             F    G

/  / /__/ /  /  |  /  / /__/ /  /
|  | |  | |  |  |  |  | |  | |  |
'  ---  ---  '  |  '  ---  ---  ' 


The ending:
I'll just give the chords since the rhythms are not consistent and the  
duration of each can easily heard on the recording:

     v--sometimes G
----(3)-------------------------------------------------------------------
--3--2--2-2-4-------------------------------------------------------------
--2--3--2-3-4-------------------------------------------------------------
--2--2--2-2-4-------------------------------------------------------------
--0--0--0-0-2-------------------------------------------------------------
---------------0-3_0-0-0--------------------------------------------------
          ^-^------------These last two may not be right...
