Intro
C   C7   F    Adim7   C   C7 A7 C Ab7  C

C                                 D7
You've heard about my capers when windows I've to clean.
G7                                                 C
Now I'd like to tell you of a few more things I've seen

#1:
C                       C7               F                 Adim7 
I've seen Miss Thompson in her flat take off her shoes her coat and hat
     C                 C7    A7  C     Ab7               C
I've seen her take off more than that, when I'm cleaning windows.

#2:
C           C7                  F                   Adim7 
At a ladies school I call, and one girl flirts with me and all
     C             C7   A7 C     Ab7               C
But I'm insured in case I  fall, when I'm cleaning windows.


Chorus:
E7                            A7 
All day up this ladder I'm as busy as can be
     D7                          G7 
It's not my fault I see a lot of things I shouldn't see

#3:
C              C7               F              Adim7 
To overcrowded flats I've been, sixteen in one bed I've seen
     C                  C7 A7 C     Ab7               C
With a lodger tucked up in between, when I'm cleaning windows

#4:
C                  C7                   F               Adim7 
Old soldiers never die they say, though I don't want to pass away
   C              C7 A7  C   Ab7               C
I kick the bucket ev-ery day when I'm cleaning windows

#5:
C                       C7               F              Adim7 
Through working at such dizzy heights, I dream about my job at night
  C                C7   A7   C           Ab7                C
I polish my wife's thingummy tights, and think I'm cleaning windows.

Chorus:
E7                            A7 
All day up this ladder I'm as busy as can be
     D7                          G7 
It's not my fault I see a lot of things I shouldn't see

#6:
     C           C7               F               Adim7 
The newlyweds at number six, somehow the curtains they can't fix
     C                C7 A7   C       Ab7                C
They play some lovely parlour tricks, When I' m cleaning windows

#7;
C                       C7             F               Adim7 
Now lots of girls I've had to jilt for they admire the way I'm built
      C                C7   A7 C     Ab7               C
Its a good job I don't wear a  kilt  when I'm cleaning windows

#8:
C                 C7               F                     Adim7 
At the coronation I'll commence to work where crowds are very dense
   C               C7   A7  C       Ab7               C
I let me stand for eighteen pence instead of cleaning windows

Chorus:
E7                            A7 
All day up this ladder I'm as busy as can be
     D7                          G7 
It's not my fault I see a lot of things I shouldn't see

#9:
C                  C7                F                 Adim7 
At eight o'clock a girl she wakes at five past eight a bath she takes 
   C                 C7  A7 C      Ab7               C
At ten past eight my ladder breaks when I'm cleaning windows

Outro solo:

C   C7   F    Adim7   C   C7 A7 C Ab7  C

C   C7   F    Adim7   C   C7 A7 C Ab7  C

E7   A7    D7     G7

C   C7   F    Adim7   C   C7 A7 C Ab7  C G C
