One of Squeeze's finest. 
A wonderful lyric (original English version below) 
An unusually simple song to play by their standards.

Standard tuning


Verse 1
=======

D           A    G
  I met her in a bar-room
D            A      G
  Her name I didn't catch
D                 A         G
  She looked like something special
D                A     G
  The kind who'd under-stand
D              A      G
  The room was almost spinning
D              A      G
  She pulled a-nother smile
D             A          G
  She had the grace like pleasure
D           A       G
  She had a certain style


Chorus 1
========

G          A
  Sunlight on the lino
G         A
  Woke me with A sha-A-A-ake
E                    A                  D
  I looked around to find her but she'd gone
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         A
  Goodbye girl


Verse 2
=======

D             A      G
  She took me to her hotel
D                  A      G
  To a room on the second floor
D          A       G
  A kettle and two coffees
D            A      G
  Her number on the door
D            A      G
  She said I hardly know you
D           A           G
  Agreed we kissed good-night
D             A      G
  I knew that in the morning
D             A       G
  Somehow I'd wake to find


Chorus 2
========

G          A
  Sunlight on the lino
G         A
  Woke me with A sha-A-A-ake
E                    A                  D
  I looked around to find her but she'd gone
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         A
  Goodbye girl


Verse 2
=======

D           A       G
  I lost my blue ad-dress book
D             A      G
  My clubroom locker keys
D           A     G
  The money in my waistcoat
D            A      G
  It doesn't bother me
D             A        G
  My wife has moved to Guernsey
D           A       G
  So mug is not the word
D               A    G
  If you should ever see her
D           A       G
  Say hello goodbye girl


Chorus 3
========

G          A
  Sunlight on the lino
G         A
  Woke me with A sha-A-A-ake
E                    A                  D
  I looked around to find her but she'd gone
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         G
  Goodbye girl
D         A
  Goodbye girl

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. There's only 2 chords in the verse - D and A.

The G is just bizarre and just sounds terrible, sorry.

I'm not sure where the G comes from in the verse, it just makes no sense and certainly isn't in any version I've ever heard.

And the E in the chorus should be E7
