Verse
F#         Ebm             Bbm
Clambering men in big bad boots
     B                     F#
Dug up my den, dug up my roots
        Ebm                 Bbm

F# / Ebm / Bbm / B

Pre-Chorus
C#                B
From meccano to legoland
C#                     B
Here they come with a brick in their hand

Verse
F#         Ebm          Bbm
Whistling men in yellow vans
      B                  F#
They came and drew us diagrams
          Ebm                 Bbm
Showed us how it all worked it out
     B            
And wrote it down in case of doubt

C#            B            
Slow, slow, quick, quick, quick

Its wall to wall and brick to brick
C#                    B
They work so fast it makes you sick
C#
Its build
