#28 in 1968.
            (Capo 1st fret.)
#1.
C                   D
Sweet cream ladies, forward march,
    F                C
the world owes you a living.
C                   D
Sweet cream ladies, do your part,
F                  C
think what you are giving...
       Am                            G
to the lost and lonely people of the night.
       C                                  G
Out of need they seek direction for their lives.
          Am
They will love you in the darkness..
     F
take advantage of your starkness..
    D                              G
and refuse to recognize you in the light.

#2.
C                   D
Sweet cream ladies, forward march,
F                 C
think what you're providing.
C                   D 
Sweet cream ladies, show your starch,
F                 C
what's the use in hiding?
         Am                           G
Tell the socialites to look the other way.
     C                           G
It's instinctive stimulation you convey.
       Am                            F
It's a necessary function, meant for those 
                             D         
without compunction..who get tired of vanilla, 
      G
every day.

(TRUMPET BREAK:)

#3.
C#                  D#             F#
Sweet cream ladies, forward march, Puritans 
       C#
ignore them.
C#                  D#             F#
Sweet cream ladies, do their part..sweet 
          C#
cream men adore them.
         Bbm                    G#
Let them satisfy the ego of the male.
         C#                              G#
Let them fabricate success for those who fail.
           Bbm
And should penalties pursue them, when there's 
F#
really credit due them..
           D#                          G#
they might keep a simple fellow out of jail.

OUTRO:
C#                  D#            F# C#
Sweet cream ladies, forward march...
C#                  D#            F# C#
Sweet cream ladies, forward march...
C#                 D#             F# C#
Sweet cream ladies forward march...(Fade.)
