------------------...........

*Released 1982*


Intro:

D  Am (x3), B  A#

Verse 1:

     D                   Am
Good morning Miss, can I help you son?
    D               Am
Six-teen today, and up for fun.
      F7
I'm a big boy now, or so they say,
   E7                                 D  Am
So if you'll serve, I'll be on my way.

Verse 2:

    D                     Am
Box of balloons, with the feather-light touch,
        D                       Am
Pack of party-poppers, that pop in the night.
  F7
A toothbrush and hairspray, plastic grin,
     E7
Miss Clay on all corners, has just walked in.

Chorus 1:

Em              C7       Em            B7
 Welcome to the House of Fun, now I've come of age,

 Welcome to the House of Fun.

 Welcome to the lion's den; temptation's on his way.

 Welcome to the House of...

Interlude:

Verse 3:

(Am)         D                    Am
 N-n-n-n-n-n-no, no miss; you mis-understood,
    D                           Am
Six-teen big boy, full pint, in my manhood.
    F7
I'm up to date, and the date's today,
   E7
So if you'll serve, I'll be on my way.

A                   D#
 I'm sorry son, but we don't stock,
A                F#m
 Party gimmicks, in this shop.
Bm                          G
 Try the House of Fun; it's quicker if you run;
                           A    A7
This is a chemist's, not a Joke Shop!

Verse 4:

D                   Am
 Party hats, simple enough, clear,
       D                         Am
Compre-hende? Savvy? Understand? Do you hear?
          D                    Am
A pack of party hats, with the coloured tips,
D                   Am
 Too late; Gorgon's heard gossip.
     F7                               E7
Well hello Joe, hello Miss Clay; many happy returns from the day.

 Welcome to the House of Fun.

Good job, Joel

Just a couple of minor suggestions, all the Am's sound closer with C in the bass, and in the break I think a D#dim sounds closer to me than a D# major.
