Verse 1
G                  C
When I saw you you looked like a diamond
       G                          C
As you played in the dust and the grime
       G                       C
Just a boy from the country of Ireland
      G                     C
And I knew I could make you shine
         G                    C
'Cos you move like a downtown dancer
          G                     C
With your hair hung down like a mane
         G                       C
And your feet play tricks like a juggler
       G                          C 
As you weave to the sound of your name

Chorus
G       D            C                    G
Georgie Georgie they call you the Belfast Boy
G       D            C                    G
Georgie Georgie they call you the Belfast joy 
G                         C
Georgie Georgie keep your feet on the ground
G                        C
Georgie Georgie when you listen to the sound
G                     C
Georgie Georgie put a light on your name
                        G   C
Yeah yeah yeah play the game
         G                 C   G C G C
Play the game boy play the game

Verse 2
     G                     C
Just play the way the ball bounces
    G                       C
And bounce the way the ball plays
        G                      C
Coz you won't have long in the limelight
       G               C
No you won't have many days
         G                      C
When you live and you play for United
          G                            C
With your life and your blood and your soul
    G                        C
You run and you kick and you fight it
        G                      C
And you learn every way to the goal

Chorus
G       D            C                    G
Georgie Georgie they call you the Belfast Boy
G       D            C                    G
Georgie Georgie they call you the Belfast joy 
G                         C
Georgie Georgie keep your feet on the ground
G                        C
Georgie Georgie when you listen to the sound
G                     C
Georgie Georgie put a light on your name
                        G   C
Yeah yeah yeah play the game
         G                 C   
Play the game boy play the game
         G                  C

         G                 C
