Am                                                           E7
Mr. Wu no longer has a laundry.  Sad to say the business was flop.
E7                             Am
He shouted "What a hope" as he chewed a bar of soap
    B7                              G7
And then put up the shutters of the shop.

G+       C                 A7       D7         G      Ab7  G   C
Said Mr. Wu, "What shall I do?" and Mr. Wu's a window clea-ner now.
C7  F                  C
The laundry, it didn't pay.
            D7                              G7
Now there's no clean collars down Limehouse Way.

[Verse 1]
C                C7       F            Ab7
When he goes out working, interest he arouses
C             A7           D7              G7
Polishing the windows with worn-out ladies blouses.
   F                    Fm        C               Em7  A7 
He wears a pair of Cami-knicks to save his Sunday trou-sers
     D7         G7     Ab7  G7  C Cdim7  G7   G7+
'Cos Mr. Wu's a window clea-ner now.

[Verse 2]
    C              C7         F              Ab7
Now little Chinese wifie each day is getting madder,
C                A7         D7                    G7
Tearing her silk stockings, her husband makes her sadder.
F               Fm               C              Em7 Am7 
All day long he wants to keep on running up the lad-der
     D7         G7     Ab7  G7  C Cdim7  G7   G7+ 
'Cos Mr. Wu's a window clea-ner now.

[Verse 3]
    C               C7        F              Ab7
He had his eyesight tested, a most important matter.
C                   A7       D7               G7
Through a bathroom window, a lady he peeps at her
   F                  Fm             C               Em7  A7 
His eyesights getting better but his nose is getting flat-ter
     D7         G7     Ab7  G7  C Cdim7  G7   G7+ 
'Cos Mr. Wu's a window cleaner now.

[Bridge]
G+       C                 A7       D7         G      Ab7 G   C
Said Mr. Wu, "What shall I do?" and Mr. Wu's a window cleaner now.
C7  F                  C
The laundry, it didn't pay.
            D7                              G7
Now there's no clean collars down Limehouse Way.

[Verse 4]
C              C7         F              Ab7
Customers he's washed for now are in bad humours.
C                  A7     D7                  G7
They feel quite neglected and I've heard the rumours.
F                Fm               C                    Em7 A7 
Lots of girls on winter nights go out without their ...gar-ters.
     D7         G7     Ab7  G7  C
'Cos Mr. Wu's a window clea-ner now.
