G            Bm7      Bbm7   Am7     D               G
Oh, Sister Josephine,       what do all these po - licemen mean..
    E7b9                       Am            Eb7   D   Daug           G
By coming to the convent in a grim limousine,    after Sister Jose - phine?
 D7    G             Bm7    Bbm7     Am7            D              G
While you, Sister Josephine,     you sit with your boots upon the altar screen,
    E7b9                Am    Eb7   D7                   G     D7  G
You smoke one last ci - gar,       what a funny nun you are!


       B7                              Em
The policemen say that Josephine's a burglar in disguise,
 B7                                    Em
'Big Bad Norman', fifteen years on the run,
      A7                              D
The Sisters disbelieve it, "No, that can't be Josephine!
      A7                               D           A7    D7(type2)  Daug(type2)
Just think about her tenderness to - wards...the younger...nuns!"


G            Bm7     Bbm7          Am7           D             G
Oh, Sister Josephine,    they're searching the chapel, where you've been seen,
    E7b9                             Am           Eb7   D   Daug           G
The nooks, and the crannies, of the nuns' canteen,    after Sister Jose - phine,
  D7   G            Bm7    Bbm7     Am7        D        G
While you Sister Josephine,     you sip one farewell Benedictine,
     E7b9                Am     Eb7    D7                  G     D7  G           
Be - fore your 'Au re - voir',      a right funny nun you are!


       B7                            Em
Ad - mittedly her hands are big and hairy,
            B7                          Em                
And em - bellished with a curious tat - too,
       A7                          D
Ad - mittedly her voice is on the deep side,
         A7                                  D      A7    D7(type2)  Daug(type2)
And she seems to shave more often than the other..Sisters...do!


G             Bm7    Bbm7    Am7             D       G
Oh, Sister Josephine,      founder of the convent pontoon team,
         E7b9                           Am
They're looking through your bundles of rare magazines,
Eb7   D    Daug          G
    After Sister Jose - phine,
 D7    G              Bm7        Bbm7     Am7      D         G
While you, Sister Josephine, you give a good-bye sniff of Benzedrine...
        E7b9             Am    Eb7     D7                  G    D7 G
To the convent budgeri - gar,      a bloody funny nun you are!


     B7                                      Em
No longer will her snores ring through the chapel during prayers,
          B7                              Em
Nor her lustful moanings fill the stilly night,
         A7                                 D
No more empty bottles of altar wine come clunking from her cell,
     A7                             D      A7    Ddim    D7
No longer will the cloister toilet seat...stand...up - right!


G            Bm7      Bbm7    Am7                   D             G
Oh, Sister Josephine,      slipping through their fingers like Vaseline,
  E7b9                       Am              Eb7    D    Daug          G
Leaving them to clutch your empty crinoline,      after Sister Jose - phine,
 D7    G           Bm7     Bbm7     Am7                D       G
While you Sister Josephine,    sprinting through the suburbs, when last seen,
        E7b9                          Am
Dressed only in your wimple and your rosary,
Eb7     D7                  Eb     F     G
     A right funny nun you seem... to... be!
