[Intro]

E    /G#m   /A    /B
E    /G#m   /A    /B

D                     A
High Street shops are boarded up,
        Bm                   G
and the terrace it is fenced in.
D                       A
See-through shields are walled across
    Bm                G
the way that you came in.
            D                A
But there's no need to get excited,
       Bm                      G
As the lorries bring the bacon in,
           D                  A
'Cause the housewives are all singin',
        Bm        G    A Bm
"Groovy times are here a-gain."

[as above]
D                 A
They discovered on Black Saturday,
         Bm                    G
That mobs don't march, they run (they run)
D                     A
So you you can excuse the nervous triggerman,
        Bm                  G
for this once jumping the gun.
D                        A
They were picking up the dead,
      Bm               G
Out of the broken glass,
D                     A
Yes, it's number one, hit radio says
          Bm            G
"Groovy times are here at last."


E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo---vy times.

[as verse 1]
D               A
The intake is on the uptake,
        Bm                  G
the acceleration's pretty grim.
D                  A
I can remember his first appearance,
        Bm                    G
now look what's happened to him.
D              A
They put him in a dog suit,
             Bm         G
like nineteen sixy four.
D                    A
King of early evening ITV,
             Bm              G
"Groovy times forever more."

[as chorus]
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo-vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo-vy times,
E    G#m  A  B
Groo-oo-vy times.
