[Verse 1]
      G             D7          G         D7      G
'Twas on a Monday morning, the Gas - man came to call,
     C                G                A7           D    D7
The gas tap wouldn't turn, I wasn't getting gas at all,
    G                 G7                 C      G/B       A7
He tore out all the skirting boards, to try and find the main,
       C               G/B       A7        D7       G
And I had to call a carpenter to put them back a - gain,
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C     D7
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 2] 
      G              D7           G      D7          G
'Twas on a Tuesday morning, the Carpen - ter came 'round,
      C               G                       A7              D    D7
He hammered, and he chiselled, and he said, "Look what I've found!
      G                  G7                  C     G/B      A7 
Your joists are full of dry - rot, but I'll put it all to rights!"
         C                      G/B          A7       D7        G
Then he nailed right through a cable, ...and out went all the lights,
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C     D7
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
      G               D7           G       D7     G
'Twas on a Wednesday morning, the Elec - trician came,
     C             G               A7             D    D7
He called me Mr. Sanderson, which isn't quite my name,
      G                 G7               C    G/B     A7
He couldn't reach the fusebox without standing on the bin,
         C                   G/B           A7       D7    G
And his foot went through a window, so I called a Glazier in,
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C     D7
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 4]
      G              D7             G     D7       G
'Twas on a Thursday morning, the Glazier came a - long,
           C                   G             A7      A9     A7     D7
With his blow torch, and his putty, and his merry...Glaz - iers...song,
    G           G7          C       G/B    A7
He put another pane in, it took no time at all,
        C            G/B            A7       D7        G
But, I had to get a Painter in, to come and paint the wall,
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C      D7
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! |  /  /   /  /  |


[Verse 5]
       G            D7           G      D7     G
'Twas on a Friday morning, the Painter made a start,
        C             G              A7            D    D7
With undercoats, and over coats, he painted every part,
       G                G7            C       G/B      A7 
Every nook, and every cranny, but I found when he was gone...
           C             G/B              A7      D7     G
...He'd painted over the gas-tap, and I couldn't turn it on,
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do!


[Coda]
D7    G           G7          C     G/B     A7
On Saturday, and Sunday, they do no work at all...
           C             G              A7      D7      G     D7 G
So, 'twas on a Monday morning that the Gas-man came to call!
