   G                  E7          Am7
Leopold Alcocks, my distant re - lation,
 D7                                   G
Came to my flat, for a brief visi - tation,
D7   G                        E7            Am7
He's been here since Februa - ry, damn and blast him,
     D7                                     G    G
My nerves, and my furniture, may not out - last him!
                                            ^    ^

  C      Bm7         Am7     Bm7
Leopold Alcocks is accident prone,
E7             Am7             D7         G
He's lost my bathplug, he's ruptured my telephone,
D7   C           Bm7          Am7          Bm7
     My anti - rrhinums, my motorbikes, my sofa,
  E7          Am7    D7            G    G
There isn't anything he can't trip o - ver!
                                   ^    ^

G   D7          G                               E7       Am7
        As he roams through my rooms, all my pussycats scatter,
       D7                                  G
My statuettes tremble, then plummet, then shatter,
D7       G                 E7          Am7
My tablelamps tumble with grim regu - larity,
   D7                                      G     G                  
My cut-glass has crumbled, and so has my chari - ty!
                                           ^     ^

   C      Bm7        Am7     Bm7
Leopold Alcocks, an uncanny creature,
E7            Am7          D7            G
He can't take tea without some misad - venture,
(Ddim)  C                Bm7            Am7           Bm7
  He  looks up from his teacup, with a smirk on his features,
       E7           Am7        D7          G
And a slice of my porcelain between his dentures!


G   D7         G                       E7             Am7
        He's upset my goldfish, he's jinxed my wis - teria,
    D7                                          G
My budgie's gone broody, my tortoise has hys - teria,
D7  G                          E7              Am7
    He cleans my teapots, my saucepans, with 'Brasso',
      D7                                      G    G
And leaves chocolate fingerprints on my Pi - cas - so!
                                              ^     ^

  C      Bm7     Am7            Bm7
Leopold Alcocks, never known to fail,
   E7       Am7             D7              G
Working his way through my fake 'Chippen - dales',
     C             Bm7                Am7       Bm7
One blow from his thighs, which are fearsomely strong,
        E7     Am7         D         G
Would easily fracture the wing of a swan!


G  D7      G                             E7           Am7
       I brought home my bird for some Turkish mous - saka,
D7                                       G
Up looms old Leopold, I know when I'm knackered,
D7  G                        E7          Am7
    He spills the vino, the great eager beaver,
    D7                                     G
Drenching her jump-suit, and my 'joie de vivre'!


   C      Bm7       Am7       Bm7
Leopold Alcocks, stirring my spleen,
E7          Am7         D7            G
You are the grit in my life's 'Vasel -ine',
   C            Bm7           Am7              Bm7
A pox on you, Alcocks, you've been here since Feb'ry,
E7            Am7         D7             G
Go home, and leave me a - lone with my debris!

  G          D7          G           D7
| /  /  / |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  / |


      G                  E7           Am7
So Leopold Alcocks, my distant re - lation,
     D7                                G
Has gone away home, after his visi - tation,
D7  G                          E7             Am7
    I glimpsed him waving bye -bye this last minute,
  D7                                     G  G
Waving his hand, with my door knob still in it!
                                         ^   ^
