Half A Boy And Half A Man- Nick Lowe
Such a grand-slam, feel-good song. I can't believe it wasn't already up.
Tabbed by burpo. Please rate/comment. Thanks.

G       D    G


G
You better run, You better hide
                                                D
You better lock your house and keep the kids inside   
Here comes the 20th century's latest scam
                        G
Called a-half a boy and half a man

           G
He ain't a fool, but he's a tool
                                                   D
Because his left don't know what his right hand is doin'
He'll keep a-King Kong eatin' out the palm of his hand
                      G
He's a half a boy and half a man

        G
Best be fleet upon your feet
                                        D
Or else the SPG's* gonna be clearin' the streets
They never made no provision in the original plan
                     G
For a-half a boy and half a man

         C
When his fingers do the walkin'
       G
In the middle of the night
A7
Where there's people stalkin'
                                       D
Baby let me tell you, nothin' come out right

Best be fleet upon your feet..

Oh, when his fingers do the walkin'..

You better run, You better hide..

Well he's a half a boy and half a man
Well he's a half a boy and half a man



*SPG - stands for Special Patrol Group - a section of the London Metropolitan Police 
tasked with dealing with riots and general unrest on the streets. They were highly mobile 
and could move to trouble spots quickly. The SPG had a reputation for being tough and 
not afraid to dish out physical pain to would be trouble makers. The SPG were particularly 
notorious around the time Nick Lowe wrote this sing.
