  Laughing in .......
  Or maybe her....... 

Verse 1:
--------
Em                                F
  Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief --
G                           [Lick 1]
if he had a rich man in his hand.
Em                                     F
 And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth
   G                                [Lick 1]
if he could take it from the money man.

Bridge 1:
---------
[Lick 2]         [Lick 2]  
Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again.
[Lick 2]               [Lick 2]  
She signs no contract, but she always plays the game.
[Lick 3]                    [Lick 3]
Dines in Hampstead village, on expense accounted gruel,
[Lick 3]                   C                D       B  
and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.

Verse 2:
--------
Em                                   F
Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:
      G                              [Lick 1]
would rather make it with a letching grey.
Em                        F
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
    G                                    [Lick 1]
who watches through the railings as they play.

Bridge 2:
---------
[Lick 2]        [Lick 2]                  
Cross-eyed Mary, finds it hard to get along.
[Lick 2]                      [Lick 2]
She's a poor man's rich girl, and she'll do it for a song.
[Lick 3]                  [Lick 3] 
She's a rich man stealer, but her favour's good and strong:
[Lick 3]                                      C            D     B     
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate -- helps the poor man get along.

Verse 2/3:
----------
[Lick 4]                                   
Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:
                                  
would rather make it with a letching grey.
[Lick 4]                         
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
                                       
who watches through the railings as they play.

Bridge 1/3:
-----------
[Lick 2]         [Lick 2]  
Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again.
[Lick 2]               [Lick 2]  
She signs no contract, but she always plays the game.
[Lick 3]                    [Lick 3]
Dines in Hampstead village, on expense accounted gruel,
[Lick 3]                   C                D       B  
and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.

tons of wrong notes, not to mention typos in chord tabs. i.e. F MAJOR was tabbed 144311 instead of 133211. Typos can
be fixed, but wrong notes are wrong notes!
