Of common sense.

How's your wife?

His hanky on his head!

Who's a nurse,
         G
And I've had a bit,
   Bm/F#         Am    E
Of bother laying turf.
     Am	       Am/maj
It's life, not books,
               Am7      Am6
That taught me all I've learned,
Am            D7
 Woop, in the b'oven,
        G
My rice pudding's getting burned!

      C
'Ere, have you seen,
                   C+
The new attachment on me drill?

I must have the cat put down,

'Cos he's ill.

 Hey, neighbour!

 I may paint it blue.

 My pink half of the drainpipe,
Am        D7 (n.C)
 Keeps me safe from,
(n.C)
 You...! 

Interlude:

(Glockenspeil):

G

G
 I'm a wobbly jelly,
C                    G
 You're a pink blanc-mange,
C             G
 I'm a sherry trifle,
A7                  D7
 You're a chocolate sponge.
G
 Your dad wears a paper hat,
C                  G
 Mine inflates bal-loons,
(n.C)
 Whoops! Boodly boop!
(Pop!) Here comes a spoon!

Coda:

G        Bm/F#       Em        Bm/F#
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
G          Bm/F#
 Separates me from,
       Am       E
The in-credibly fascinating,
              Am
Story of your life,
          Am/maj      Am7
And every day to day event,
            Am6
In all it's minute,
               Am                 D7
And tedious at-tention to detail...

             G
And was it a Thursday or a Wednesday?
    C
Or, oh, no, it wasn't though.
Oh, who cares anyway,
        C+
Because I do not,
                           Am7
So Norman if you're normal,
I intend to be a freak,
                   D7
For the rest of my life.
And I shall baffle you,

     G            Bm/F#
With cabbages and rhinoceroses,
       Em
In the kitchen,
             Bm/F#
Incessant quotations,
      G                Bm/F#
From "Now We Are Six",
Through the mouthpiece,
   Em
Of Lord Snooty's,
Bm/F#             G             Bm/F#
 Giant poisoned e-lectric head.
   Em    Bm/F#
So there......

Outro:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F# (x6)
