Jake Thackray – Sister Josephine chords

Chords
Transpose:
G Bm C GOh, Sister Josephine, what do all these policemen mean
Em Am D G D7By coming to the convent in a grim limousine, after Sister Josephine?
G Bm C GWhile you, Sister Josephine, you sit with your boots upon the altar screen
Em Am D D7 GYou smoke one last cigar - what a funny nun you are!
Bm EmThe policemen say that Josephine's a burglar in disguise
Bm EmBig bad Norman, fifteen years on the run
Bm EmThe Sisters disbelieve it no that can't be Josephine
Bm A C# D7Just think about her tenderness towards the younger nuns.
G Bm C GOh, Sister Josephine, they're searching the chapel where you've been seen
Em Am D G D7The nooks and the crannies of the nuns' canteen after Sister Josephine.
G Bm C GWhile you Sister Josephine, you sip one farewell Benedictine
Em Am D D7 G Before your au revoir - a right funny nun you are!
Bm Em Bm EmAdmittedly her hands are big and hairy and embellished with a curious tattoo
Bm EmAdmittedly her voice is on the deep side
Bm A C# D7And she seems to shave more often than the other Sisters do.
G Bm C GOh, Sister Josephine, founder of the convent pontoon team
Em AmThey're looking through your bundles of rare magazines
D G D7After Sister Josephine.
G Bm C GWhile you, Sister Josephine, you give a goodbye sniff of benzedrine
Em Am D D7 GTo the convent budgerigar - a bloody funny nun you are!
Bm EmNo longer will her snores ring through the chapel during prayers
Bm EmNor her lustful moanings fill the stille night
Bm EmNo more empty bottles of altar wine come clunking from her cell
Bm A C# D7No longer will the cloister toilet seat stand upright.
G Bm C GOh, Sister Josephine, slipping through their fingers like Vaseline
Em Am D G D7Leaving them to clutch your empty crinoline, after Sister Josephine.
G Bm C GWhile you Sister Josephine, sprinting through the suburbs when last seen
Em AmDressed only in your wimple and your rosary
D G C GA right funny nun you seem to be.
