intro: keyboard riff of D A C F G (whole band come in on the G).
       
guitar stays on the chord of G, while the keyboard riff is played another
three times.

G     
Didn't have the money round to buy a Morry Thou
F                             C           G
Been around and seen a lot to shake me anyhow
G  
Begged and borrowed sometimes I admit I even stole
        F                               C              G
But the worst crime that I ever did was playing rock'n'roll

        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself
        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself

G 
Suffering convictions on a two way stretch inside
F                                 C                G
The air in here in pretty thin, I think I'll go outside
G 
Committed for insanity and crimes against the soul
    F                               C                G
The worst crime that I ever did was play some rock'n'roll

        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself
        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself


And you should know!

(during this bit, the guitar and bass stay on D while
 the keyboard plays the chords)

D      A/D    C/D    F/D    G/D
Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... (x3)
D      A/D    C/D    F/D    G
Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh...


keyboard solo:
D A C F G (x4)

D      A      C      F      G 
Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... (x2)


G
Now I find from week to week the sentence sticking fast
F                                 C                   G
Turn the corner, rub my eyes, and hope the world will last
G       
Stranger from another planet, welcome to our hole
F                                   C                  G
Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock and roll

        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself
        D               F           G
But the money's no good, just get a grip on yourself

And you should know!
