Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll by Ian Dury and The Blockheads

Worked out by Matt Poole of England, England, using my excellent brain.

Main riff:

This occurs throughout the song - mainly when he's singing sexanddrugsandrockandroll
                                                                     
E-|---------------|---------------|---------------|------------|---------------|
B-|---------------|---------------|---------------|------------|---------------|
G-|---------------|---------------|---------------|------------|---------------|
D-|---------------|---------------|---------------|-----2------|---------------|
A-|--2--4--5--4---|--2--0---------|--2--4--5--4---|--2---------|--2--4--5--4---|
E-|---------------|--------3------|---------------|------------|---------------|
                                           
E-|---------------|---------------|--------
B-|---------------|---------------|--------
G-|---------------|---------------|--------
D-|---------------|---------------|-----5--
A-|--2--0---------|--2--4--5--4---|--2-----
E-|--------3------|---------------|--------
                                           
this bit leads into the verses
                           
E-|---------------|--------
B-|---------------|--------
G-|---------------|--------
D-|---------------|--------
A-|--2--0---------|--------
E-|--------3--2---|--0-----

(these words go over the riff)                         
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Is all my brain and body need 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Is very good indeed 

C#m		Abm	A		      B
Keep your silly ways or throw them out the window 
C#m		Abm	A		      B
The wisdom of your ways I've been there and I know 
C#m		Abm	A		      B
Lots of other ways, what a jolly bad show 
D			B	A    G 
If all you ever do is business you don't like 

play that riff again

Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Is very good indeed 

do the chords again for this verse
Ev'ry bit of clothing ought to make you pretty 
You can cut the clothing, grey is such a pity 
I should wear the clothing of Mr. Walter Mitty 
See my tailor, he's called Simon 
I know it's going to fit

vamp on a III pos Em chord over this bit

Here's a little bit of advice 
You're quite welcome, it is free 
Don't do nothin' that is cut-price 
You know what they'll make you be 
They will try their tricky devise 
Trap you with the ordin'ry 
Get your teeth into a small slice 
The cake of liberty 

verse chords over keys solo

then go berserk on the riff until the song finishes. Or longer, if you prefer.

Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll - ow! ow! 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll - ow! ow! ow! ow! 
Sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll .... 

Peace.
