Uncle Vernon, Uncle Vernon,
     Cm           G#     G
Inde-pendent as a hog on ice.

He's a big-shot, down there at the slaughterhouse,

Plays ac-cordion for Mis-ter Weiss.

Uncle Biltmore, and Uncle William,

Made a million during World War II.
            Fm        C#           Fm          C#
But they're tightwads, and they're cheapskates,

And they'll never give a dime to you.

In the doorway of an old ho-tel.
        Cm    G#          Cm    G#
And the radio, is playing opera,

They say he never keeps it in his pants.

 He has emphy-sema and he's almost blind.
