 Velvet jackets and py-jamas, the gay di-vorce, and other dramas.

 Van Gough did some eyeball pleasers,
   C         D7            G        E7  A7  D7
He must have been a pencil squeezer.
   G                  D7    C        D7         G
He didn't do the Mona Lisa; that was an Italian geezer.

 There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D

 Einstein can't be classed as witless;

 He claimed atoms were the littlest.
G                      D7            C        D7        G
 When you did a bit of splittemness; frighten everybody shitless.

Cmaj7         Bm7             Am7           G             D7
 Probably got help from their mum, (who had help from her mum).

 There ain't half been some clever bastards,

Cmaj7          Bm7              Am7               G            D7
 Now that we've had some, let's hope that there's lots more to come.

 There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D
 (Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders),

There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

 Da-laa la-laa da-daa da-lee,

De dump di dump, de dump-dump-diddle lum-lee.

There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D
 (Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders).

There ain't half been some clever bastards,
