...BLOCKHEADS... by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
----------------.............................

*from 'New Boots and Panties!' (1977)*


Intro:

E, D  A

Verse 1:

    E
You must have seen parties of Blockheads;
     D
With blotched and lagered skin.
A
 Blockheads with food particles in their teeth,
       E                          D  A
What a horrible state they're in.

Verse 2:

            E
They've got womanly breasts under pale mauve vests,
D
 Shoes like dead pigs' noses.
A
 Cornflake packet jacket, catalogue trousers,
  E
A mouth what never closes.

Verse 3:

    E
You must have seen Blockheads in raucous teams,
D
 Dressed up after work.
    A
Who screw their poor old Eileens,
    E                      D  A
Get sloshed and go berserk.

Verse 4:

E
 Rotary accessory watches,
     D
Hire-purchase, signet rings.
  A
A beauty to the bully boys,
   E                      D  A
No lonely vestige clings.

Verse 5:

    E
Why bother at all about Blockheads?
    D
Why shouldn't they do as they please?
         A
You know if it came to a brainy game,
          E                            D  A
You could baffle a Blockhead with ease.

Break:

D
 How would you like one,
Puffing and blowing in your ear-hole?
E                                  D  A
 Or pissing in your swimming pool?

Interlude:

E, D  A

Verse 6:

E
 Bigger brained Blockheads often acquire;
D
 Black and orange cars.
A
 Premature ejaculation drivers,
      E                        D  A
Their soft-top's got roll-bars.

Verse 7:

E
 "Fill her up", they say to Blockheads,
        D
"Go on, stick it where it hurts".
      A 
Their shapeless haircuts don't enhance;
      E                        D  A
Their ghastly patterned shirts.

Verse 8:

    E
Why bother at all about Blockheads,
   D
Su-perior as you are?
       A
You're thoughtful and kind,
With a well-stocked mind,
  E                              D  A
A Blockhead can't think very far.

Break:

D
 Imagine finding one in your laundry basket,
E                                    D  A
 Banging nails in your big black dog.

Solo:

E, D, A, D  A

Verse 9:

    E
Why bother at all about Blockheads?
           D
Why should you care what they do?
     A
'Cos after all is said and done;
E                        D  A
 You're a Blockhead too.

Break:

(Instrumental):

D, E, D  A

Outro:

E
 Blockheads, Blockheads,
D
 Blockheads, Blockheads,
A
 Blockheads, Blockheads,
E                       D  A
 Blockheads, Blockheads.

(Repeat to Fade)
