...LULLABY FOR FRANCIS... by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
-------------------------.............................

*from 'Do It Yourself' (1979)*


Intro:

E  F#m  D (x3)

Verse 1:

      A          E                                         A
Go to sleep now, Francis; you've done all you can with the day.
                             E                                       A   G#m
Safe and sound now; that's a promise, you'll be welcome in the milky way.

Chorus 1:

F#m                           B7                   D          E
 Tumble down, tired and true, spirit to restore; a balance is due.
      A          D        E          A
Go to sleep now, Francis, close your eyes.

Verse 2:

A                                E                                A
 Hang your thoughts up, shut the index, it's time to impose a cur-few.
                            E                                       A  G#m
And you'll get up fresh and ready, with a hundred and one things to do.

Chorus 2:

F#m                             B7 (n.C)            D       E
 Drowsy now; here comes a space, call a halt to the steeple chase.
      A          D        E          A
Go to sleep now, Francis, close your eyes.

Bridge 1:

        D                       E          A        D       E      A
If your life, or some old lover, cause con-cern, or puzzle, or per-turb.
    D                      C#7      F#m
The more you discover; the more you learn.
      B7           D         E       A
Go to sleep now... please do not dis-turb.

Interlude:

F#m                           B7                   D          E
 Tumble down, tired and true, spirit to restore; a balance is due.
      A          D        E          A
Go to sleep now, Francis, close your eyes.
