B  A#  G#, F
B  A#  G#

Verse 1:

F                                    G#
 Naughty boys in nasty schools, head-masters breaking all the rules,
A#                             B               A#       G#
 Having fun and playing fools, smashing up the woodwork tools.

F                             G#
 All the teachers in the pub, passing 'round the ready-rub,
A#                               B                    A#     G#
 Trying not to think of when the lunch-time bell will ring a-gain.

Chorus 1:

A#              A#m       F             Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?
A#               A#m         C                     B   C
 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

A#              A#m      F              Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.
A#                A#m      C                 B
 Trying different ways, to make a difference to...

Verse 2:

A#   G#   F                          G#
 The head-master's had enough today, all the kids have gone away,
A#                                      B               A#     G#
 Gone to fight with next-door's school; every term that is the rule.

F                              G#
 Sits alone and bends his cane; same old backsides again,
A#                                   B                A#        G#
 All the small ones tell tall tales, walking home and squashing snails.

Chorus 2:

A#              A#m       F             Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?
A#               A#m         C                     B   C
 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

A#              A#m      F              Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.
A#                A#m      C                    C# (Dm)
 Trying different ways, to make a difference to the days.

Interlude:

Dm  Em, Dm  Bm (x3), Dm, B  A#  A  G#

Verse 3:

F                                G#
 Lots of girls and lots of boys, lots of smells and lots of noise.
A#                             B                 A#    G#
 Playing football in the park, kicking pushbikes after dark.

F                             G#
 Baggy trousers, dirty shirt, pulling hair and eating dirt,
A#                             B                       A#      G#
 Teacher comes to break it up; back of the 'ead with a plastic cup.

Chorus 3:

A#              A#m       F             Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?
A#               A#m         C                     B   C
 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

A#              A#m      F              Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.
A#                A#m      C                    C# (Dm)
 Trying different ways, to make a difference to the days.

Interlude:

Dm  Em, Dm  Bm (x3), Dm, B  A#  A  G#

Coda:

F                G#              A#             B  A#  A  G#
 Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers.
F                G#              A#             B  A#  A  G#
 Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers.

(Repeat to Fade)
