    C            G7              Am7    C#dim       G7
I'm leaning on a lamp, maybe you think,   I look a tramp,
           C        Am7       D7       G7        C    Dm7  G7   
Or you may think I'm hanging 'round to steal a car.
    C            G7                Am7    C#dim          G7
But no I'm not a crook, and if you think, that's what I look,
               C        Am       D7             G7   Dm7  G7
I'll tell you why I'm here, and what my motives are.

Verse 1:

    C            
I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,

In case a certain little lady comes by.
   G7         C  
Oh me,    oh my,   
  G               D7         G  G7
I hope the little lady comes by.
  C                          
I don't know if she'll get away, she doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
