Intro C Am D7 G7 | C Am D7 G7 C | C C

C                 
A gentleman's got a walking stick.
                 G
A seaman's got a gaff.
        G7             
And the merry men of Robin Hood
     G             C
They used a quarterstaff.
       C             
On the Spanish plains inside their canes
                      G
They hide their ruddy swords.
    G7                  
But we make do with an old bamboo
             C     
And everyone applauds!
                            G7
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - Hey!


   C               Am
Me ol' bam-boo, me ol' bam-boo
      D7                                  G
You'd better never bother with me ol' bam-boo
        C                 Am
You can have me hat or me bum-ber-shoo
          F                           G       C    C G C G
But you'd better never bother with me ol' bam-boo


C              
When punting on the beautiful Thames
                 G
You use a sturdy pole.
      G7
To protect their fair complexion
                 C
Ladies use a parasol.

     C
It's useful in the underbrush
                G7     G
To have a hefty spear. Right !!

    G7                  
But what we do with an old bam-boo
           G    C
Makes everybody cheer!

            G7
1 - 2 - 3 - HO!


   C               Am
Me ol' bam-boo, me ol' bam-boo

You can have me hat or me bum-ber-shoo
          F                           G       C    C G C G
But you'd better never bother with me ol' bam-boo

C
'Ere we go, mate . . .

  G 
A flyer in an air-e-o-plane
   G
He steers it with a stick

  G7             G
A collier in the pits o' Wales
   G7             C
He leans upon his pick
C
That's right!

    C                 Am
Now every wheel of an automobile
                  G      G
Revolves around a shaft (HEY!)
    G7
But what we do with an old bam-boo
                   C
Makes every one go daft.

        G7
And 1 - 2

   C               Am
Me ol' bam-boo, me ol' bam-boo
      D7                                  G

You can have me hat or me bum-ber-shoo

But you'd better never bother with me ol' bam-boo

                                              G7
And a 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - and a 5 and a 6 and a 7 HO!

Me ol' bam-boo, me ol' bam-boo
