INTRO
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |


VERSE
D      D          G
My landlady's too rude
       A                    D
In my affair she likes to intrude
D      D          G
My landlady's too rude
       A                    D       D7
In my affair she likes to intrude


BRIDGE
G                   D      B7
Five o'clock in the morning
G       A       D
The landlady is peepin'
D     D       G
 No, it isn't fair
          A               D
This prosecution I got to bear
          B7
And every Monday:


CHORUS
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"
D         G     G#dim  D
O Lord, I try I cannot prevent
    B7
She tellin' me
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"


INTERLUDE
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |


VERSE
D       D        G
 This is how she start
           A                        D
A lot of restrictions to break your heart
D      D      G
 "After ten o'clock
             A                     D        D7
Tenants must know my front door is locked"


BRIDGE
           G                   D      B7
And on the wall she stick up a notice
         Em            A      D
"No lady friends - not even a princess"
D       D       G
 And if you disagree
        A           D
Out you go immediately
          B7
And every Monday:


CHORUS
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"
 D          G      G#dim       D
"Lord Kitchener, I ain't got a cent"
    B7
She tellin' me
 Em     A          D       D   
"Mister give me my rent"


INTERLUDE
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |


VERSE
D        D      G
 No chair, no table
       A                D
The convenience is terrible
D       D         G
 And on the other part
       A               D        D7
No hot water to take a bath


BRIDGE
      G                      D      B7
And believe you sleep like a rabbit
        Em         A         D
A dirty sheet with half of a blanket
D            D         G
 And she has the audacity
               A             D
To tell me I'm living in luxury
          B7
And every Monday:


CHORUS
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"
D         G     G#dim  D
O Lord, I try I cannot prevent
    B7
She tellin' me
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"


INTERLUDE
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |
| G G#dim | D B7 | Em A | D |


VERSE
D      D       G
 No use you complain 
                 A                    D
You wastin' your time, you talking in vain
        D        D        G
Because, when she get her fees
                  A                    D        D7
She couldn't care less if you vexed or pleased


BRIDGE
        G                  D      B7
And the rent is all on the level
        Em       A         D
Four Guineas for single or double
     D     D        G
Boys, that landlady bad
                   A                  D
She worse than the landlord from Trinidad
          B7
And every Monday:


CHORUS
 Em     A          D
"Mister give me my rent"
D         G     G#dim  D
O Lord, I try I cannot prevent
    B7
She tellin' me
 Em     A          D        D   
"Mister give me my rent"
