When I'm Cleaning Windows
George Formby
- written by George Formby, Harry Gifford and Frederick E. Cliffe
September 27, 1936 by George Formby (1904-1961)

I've done this in barre chords and it's intermediate 'cause of the speed.

Intro: G#.G#  G#.G#.G#  E7.E7  Eb7

G#                           Bb
Now I go cleanin' windows to earn an honest bob

Eb                                    G#
For a nosy parker it's an interestin' job

G#                  G#7
Now it's a job that just suits me

C#               E7
A window cleaner you would be

If you can see what I can see

E7                    G#
When I'm cleanin' windows

Honeymoonin' couples too
You should see them bill 'n coo
You'd be surprised at things they do
When I'm cleanin' windows


In my profession I'll work hard

But I'll never stop

I'll climb this blinkin' ladder

Till I get right to the top

The blushin' bride, she looks divine
The bridegroom he is doin' fine
I'd rather have his job than mine
When I'm cleanin' windows

The chambermaids' sweet names I call
It's a wonder I don't fall
My mind's not on my work at all
When I'm cleanin' windows

I know a fella, such a swell
He has a thirst, that's plain to tell
I've seen him drink his bath as well
When I'm cleanin' windows

Oh, in my profession I'll work hard
But I'll never stop
I'll climb this blinkin' ladder
Till I get right to the top

Pyjamas lyin' side by side
Ladies nighties I have spied
I've often seen what goes inside
When I'm cleanin' windows

------ Verses Chords ------

Now there's a famous talkie queen
She looks a flapper on the screen
She's more like eightie than eighteen
When I'm cleanin' windows

She pulls her hair all down behind
Then pulls down her... never mind
And after that pulls down the blind
When I'm cleanin' windows

In my profession I'll work hard
But I'll never stop
I'll climb this blinkin' ladder
Till I get right to the top

An old maid walks around the floor
She's so fed up, one day I'm sure
She'll drag me in and lock the door
When I'm cleanin' windows
