Intro: G, C, Em, D x2

G         C                 Em 
Razor tea-cups and tip top craic
                D                     G
of the crooked, Backstreet Lovers and sons
            C                    Em
Lawless law men walk the streets of
                 D                        G
Dirty meadows of foul mouthed mothers and guns
                 C                   Em
Brick blacked-up kids mugged me the day I
D                  G
ran off with your sister
               C                    Em
a young school maid, caught up in a world of
           D
Backstreet Lovers.
            C       D        Em        G               C      
Lovers and sons, I waved her away to a friend
    D                     G
at least that's what she said.

G             C            Em
Rotting teeth of a grubby gran
                       D                   G
fill the alleys of the stolen roll-ups and blunts
            C               Em
a skin-head dad came cap in hand
                   D                    G
with a duster and flash of switch blade fun
             C                           Em
still on the dole, though the picket was broken
  D            G
a soiled age ago.
                C                   Em
But he's caught up, caught up in a world of
           D
Backstreet Lovers
            C       D        Em        G          C      
Lovers and sons, I waved her away to a friend
    D                   Em
at least that's what she said.
                C                      G            
tangled in the roots and tangled in the weeds
               D                         Em
of a concrete jungle came that girl from Leeds
                  C
in torn dress and tights,
              G
she ain't no slag.
           D              C
i won her over with a '40 bag.
   D        G          C            C
I waved her away to a friend
    D                     G
at least that's what she said.

G         C                 Em 
Razor tea-cups and tip top craic
                D                     G
of the crooked, Backstreet Lovers and sons
            C                    Em
Lawless law men walk the streets of
                 D                        G
Dirty meadows of foul mouthed mothers and guns
                 C                   Em
Brick blacked-up kids mugged me the day I
D                  G
ran off with your sister
               C                    Em
a young school maid, caught up in a world of
           D
Backstreet Lovers.
            C       D        Em        G               C

G              C            Em
Rotting teeth of a grubby gran

Lovers and sons
