(rest of song follows same chord progressions)

now the old man was a desert rat - khaki shorts and a khaki hat
how me mother could have fancied that - i just don’t know
but when the enemy came in sight - they gave up without a fight
cos they rubbed him up the wrong way - and this is what they heard him say

gertch u cow son , gertcha
gertcha - when my rock and roll records wake him up
gertch - when the poles knocked england out the cup
gertch – when the kids are banging on the door
gertcha- when the barman wont serve him any more
gertch u cow son , gertcha
barstool preaching he’s always been the same

solo ( chords as verse , do it chuck berry style )

gertch u cow son , gertcha
gertcha – when the dog left a message on the step
gertcha – lester piggot when he lost it by a neck
gertcha – when me brother kicked the toes out of his shoes
gertcha – when the houseflies are flying round the room
gertch u cow son , gertcha
barstool preaching he’s always been the same
when me mother says he cant go down the pup
sisters boyfriend put sister up the club
at the tomcats - when theyre kickin up a din
Tottenham hotspurs – couldn’t get one in
When me mother locks him out the flat
When its raining – and he cant find his hat
In the morning – when his motor car wont go
Next door neighbour – when he wont give him a tow
