...BLOCKHEADS... by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
----------------.............................

*from 'New Boots and Panties!!' (1977)*


Intro:

G, F  C

Verse 1:

    G
You must have seen parties of Blockheads;
     F
With blotched and lagered skin.
C
 Blockheads with food particles in their teeth,
       G                         F  C
What a horrible state they're in.

Verse 2:

            G
They've got womanly breasts, under pale mauve vests,
F
 Shoes like dead pigs' noses.
C
 Cornflake packet jacket, catalogue trousers,
  G
A mouth what never closes.

Verse 3:

    G
You must have seen Blockheads in raucous teams,
F
 Dressed up after work.
    C                                 G                      F  C
Who screw their poor old Eileens, get sloshed and go berserk.

Verse 4:

G                               F
 Rotary accessory watches, hire-purchase, signet rings.
  C                              G                      F  C
A beauty to the bully boys, hire-purchase, signet rings.

Verse 5:

    G
Why bother at all about Blockheads?
    F
Why shouldn't they do as they please?
         C
You know if it came to a brainy game,
          G                            F  C
You could baffle a Blockhead with ease.

Break:

F
 How would you like one puffing and blowing in your ear-hole?
G                                  F  C
 Or pissing in your swimming pool?

Interlude:

G, F  C

Verse 6:

G                                         F
 Bigger brained Blockheads often acquire; black and orange cars.
C                                     G                        F  C
 Premature ejaculation drivers, their soft-top's got roll-bars.

Verse 7:

G
 "Fill her up", they say to Blockheads,
        F
"Go on, stick it where it hurts".
      C
Their shapeless haircuts don't enhance;
      G                        F  C
Their ghastly patterned shirts.

Verse 8:

    G                                  F
Why bother at all about Blockheads, su-perior as you are?
       C
You're thoughtful and kind, with a well-stocked mind,
  G                              F  C
A Blockhead can't think very far.

Break:

F
 Imagine finding one in your laundry basket,
G                                    F  C
 Banging nails in your big black dog.

Solo:

G, F, C, F  C

Verse 9:

    G
Why bother at all about Blockheads?
           F
Why should you care what they do?
     C                            G                      F  C
'Cos after all, is said and done; you're a Blockhead too.

Break: (Instrumental)

F, G, F  C

Outro:

G                        F
 Blockheads, Blockheads, Blockheads, Blockheads,
C                        G                      F  C
 Blockheads, Blockheads, Blockheads, Blockheads.

(Repeat to Fade)
