A7
 Sneaking sally through the alley,

 Ooh, ooh, ooh.

 Sneaking sally through the alley,

 Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Verse 1:

A7
 Sneaking sally through the alley,
D7 C7                        A7
    Tryin' to keep her outta sight.
A7
 Sneaking sally through the alley,
D7 C7                  A7
    When up popped the wife.

         A7
I said, "I can't find nothing wrong,
With being friends 'cos sometimes;
D7 C7                         A7
    She lets me use her car."
              A7
She said; "If you can't find,
Nothing wrong in your mind,
You'd better;
D7 C7              A7
    Find something wrong with hers.

Bridge 1:

   D7         G7        D7
So I began to try to ex-plain,
        C7
That it just wasn't, just wasn't,
G7                    D7
 Just wasn't what she thought.

    A7
Now I'd better find something,
To do with my time;
     D7  C7
Fact is;
               A7
I've just been caught.

 Sneaking through the alley with Sally;

    Tryin' to get away clean.
A7
 Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
D7 C7                  A7
    When up popped the queen.

A7
 I talk double talk,
Anything's trouble talk,
                   D7  C7  A7
Catching myself in lies.
A7
 Mama, just look at me as if I was crazy;
D7 C7                      A7
    She didn't even bat an eye-lid.

Bridge 2:

 Just wasn't what she thought.

Now I'd better find something,
To do with my time;

Fact is;

I've just been caught, just been caught.
