[Chorus 1]
F                       G7
Now I go cleaning windows to earn an honest bob.
C                                      F
For a nosey parker it's an interesting job

[Verse 1]
C                   C7
Now it's a job that just suits me,
F                D7
A window cleaner you would be.
   C                  F
If you could see what I can see
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Verse 2]
C                C7
The honeymooning couples too,
F                   D7
You should see them bill and coo.
      C               F 
You'd be surprised at things they do
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Chorus 2]
F                             G7
In my profession I work hard, but I'll never stop.
C                                                       F
I'll climb this blinking ladder 'til I get right to the top.

[Verse 3]
C                      C7
The blushing bride she looks divine,
    F                D7
The bridegroom he is doing fine
    C               F 
I'd rather have his job than mine
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.
 
[Verse 4]
C                     C7
The chambermaid sweet names I call,
       F      D7
It's a wonder I don't fall.
   C               F
My minds not on my work at all
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows

[Verse 5]
C                C7
I know a fellow, such a swell,
         F           D7
He has a thirst it's plain to tell.
     C                  F
I've seen him drink his bath as well
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows

[Chorus 2]
F                             G7
Oh in my profession I work hard, but I'll never stop.
C                                                       F
I'll climb this blinking ladder 'til I get right to the top.

[Verse 6]
C             C7
Pyjamas lying side by side
F               D7
Ladies nighties I have spied.
     C               F 
I've often seen what goes inside,
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Instrumental]

[Verse 7]
C                C7
There's a famous talkie queen,
F                   D7
She looks a flapper on the screen.
      C                D7
She's more like eighty than eighteen
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Verse 8]
C                      C7
She pulls her hair all down behind,
     F               D7
Then pulls down her, never mind
      C          D7
And after that pulls down the blind
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Chorus 3]
F                             G7
All day up this ladder I’m as busy as can be
C                                                   F
It’s not my fault I see a lot of things I shouldn’t see

[Verse 9]
C                    C7
An old maids walks around the floor
      F                  D7
She’s so fed up, one day I’m sure
       C          D7
She’ll drag me in and lock the door
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.

[Verse 10]
C                  C7
At eight o'clock a girl she wakes,
F                    D7
At five past eight a bath she takes.
    C             D7
At ten past eight my ladder breaks
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.
G7                C
When I'm cleaning windows.
