Fm

FmThe pekes and the pollicles everyone knows
Fm C7/F - Fm -Are a proud and implacable passionate foes
C7/F Fm -It is always the same whereever one goes
Fm And the Pugs and the Poms although most people say
Fm C7/F - Fm - That they do not like fighting yet once in a way
C7/F - C7/F FmThey will now and again join into the fray and they
Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm -Until you could hear them all over the park and they
Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm -Until you could hear them all over the park
Fm FmNow on the occassion of which I shall speak
Fm C7/F - Fm -Almost nothing had happened for nearly a week
C7/F - C7/F - C7/F - Fm - And that's a long time for a Pol or a Peke
Fm Fm The big police dog was away from his beat
Fm C7/F - Fm -I don't know the reason but most people think
C7/F - C7/F - C7/F - Fm - He slipped into the Wellington Arms for a drink
A#m - D# - G# - C# - And no one at all was about on the street
F# - C7 - Fm When a Peke and a Pollicle happened to meet
A#m - D# - G# - C# -They did not advance or exactly retreat
F# - C7 But they glared at each other and scraped their hind feet and they started to
Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm -Until you could hear them all over the park
Fm FmNow the Peke although people may say what they please
Fm C7/F - Fm -Is no British dog but a heathen Chinese
Fm FmAnd so all the Pekes when they heard the uproar
Fm C7/F - Fm - Some came to the window, some came to the door
C7/F Fm - There were surely a dozen more likely a score
A#m - D# - G# - C# - And together they started to grumble and wheeze
F# - C7 - FmIn their huffery-snuffery heathen Chinese
A#m - D# - G# - C# -But a terrible din is what Pollicles like
F# - C# - Fm For your Pollicle dog is a dour Yorkshire tyke
A# - F7/A#-A#There are dogs out of every nation
F - C7 - Fthe Irish, the Welsh and the Dane:
G# D#The Russian, the Dutch, the Dalmatian,
A# - A#/D - D# - D#/F - and even from China and Spain.
A# - F7/A# - A#The Poodle, the Pom, the Alsatian
F - C7 - F - D# - And the Mastiff who walks on a chain.
A#/D - F7 - A#And to those that are frisky and frolical,
A# G#/A# Let my meaning be perfectly plain:
A# - F7/A# - A#That my name it is little Tom Pollicle,
A# - G# - A# and you'd better not do it again!"
Fm And his braw Scottish cousins are snappers and biters
And every dog-jack of them notable fighters And so they stepped out with their pipers in order Playing "When the Blue Bonnets Come Over The Border" A# A# (2 bars) G#/A# A# (2 bars) A# - G#
Fm FmThen the Pugs and the Poms held no longer aloof
Fm C7/F - FmBut some from the balcony some from the roof joined into the din with a
Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm -Until you could hear them all over the park
Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm -Until you could hear them all over the park
FmNow when these bold hereos together assembled
Fm C7/F - Fm -The traffic all stopped and the underground trembled
Fm And some of the neighbours were so much afraid
Fm C7/F - Fm -That they started to ring up the Fire Brigade!
A#m - D# - G# - C# - When suddenly up from a small basement flat
F# - C7 D#--G# Why who should stalk out but the Great Rumpus Cat!!!!
His eyes were like fireballs fearfully blazing He gave a great yawn and his jaws were amazing And when he looked out through the bars of the area You never saw anything fiercer.... ...Or hairier
Fm FmAnd what with a glare of his eyes and his yawning
C/F - F -The Pekes and the Pollicles quickly took warning
Fm Fm He looked at the sky and he gave a great leap
Fm C/F - Fm -And they every last one of them scattered like sheep!
Fm (2 bars) Fm C/F - Fm -
A#m - D# - G# - C# -And when the Police dog returned to his beat
E/B - Fm/C - C7 - Fm There wasn't a single one left on the street!
E/B---E/B - Fm/CAll hail and all power to the Great Rumpus Cat!!!!
Fm F#/FJellicle cats and dogs all must
D#/F FmPollicle dogs and cats all must
C# F#7Like undertakers come to dust
