Madness - In The Middle Of The Night



G         Am        Bm           Am
Nice man george newsagent on the corner
G        Am       Bm        Am
Not very rich but never any poorer
C          Dm       Em          Dm
Jaunty old george a happy sixty-three
C        Dm       Em        Dm
Not very tall but healthier than me.
G                     Am         Bm       Am
He whistles timeless tunes as he saunters down the street
G              Am       Bm            Am
Springs in his legs and elastic in his feet.

Am                       E
But in the middle of the night
Am                     E
He steals through your garden
Bm          F#
Gives your hosiery a fright
    Bm          F#
And doesn't say pardon.
   Am        E
As soft as a breeze
        Am          E
With an arm full of underwear
       Bm        F#
On his hands and knees
       Bm        F#
Dreams about the knicker scare.

G           Am        Bm            Am
Hello there george newsagent on the corner
G         Am        Bm           Am
How's the old caryes the climate's getting warmer
C          Dm      Em          Dm
Chatty old george as you get your morning paper
C          Dm          Em            Dm
Read about the knicker thiefunderwear taker. 
G         Am        Bm           Am
Bids you 'good day'as you wander out the door
G         Am        Bm           Am
Never closes early always cleans the floor.

Am                       E
But when darkness hits the town
           Am               E
And there's washing on your line
     Bm             F#
Get your knickers down
      Bm          F#
Before the dreaded sign.
           Am           E
When the clock strikes eight
           Am             E
And you're snuggled up in bed
         Bm            F#
He'll be at the garden gate
        Bm             F#
Filling underwear with dread.

G        Am        Bm            Am
Nice man george newsagent on the corner
G           Am       Bm            Am
He was closed today maybe gone to mow the lawn
C                    Dm              Em          Dm
I had to go further down the road to get me current bun
C          Dm              Em      Dm
Hello - isn't that george on page one ? 
G            Am        Bm            Am
No it couldn't be but yes it is
G           Am        Bm            Am
Difficult to see from these photofits.


Am                 E
But they are after him
   Am              E
Of that you can be sure
         Bm               F#
They've called him on the phone
       Bm               F#
They've knocked on his door.
      Am         E
A-but he's gone away
        Am               E
Gone to stay with some mates
Bm               F#
He got the papers early
    Bm          F#
And saw his own face.

Am, E, Am, E, Bm, F#, Bm F# (fading)
