LOOKING AFTER NO. 1 - The Boomtown Rats

After looking on tab on here, some of them didn't have the guitar chord change 
half way through.  This is copied from the 1977 sheet music.

Intro: drums for 2 and half bars then D A

E                          E D A
The world owes me a living
E                                    E D A
I waited on this dole queue too long
E
I've been standin' in the rain for fifteen minutes -
       D             A             E
that's a quarter of an hour too long

A    E    A    E
oh oh ho, oh oh ho

E                              E D A
I'll take all they can give me
E                               E D A
And then I'm gonna ask for more
E
Cos the money's buried deep in the bank of England
      D        A            E
and I want the key to the vault

Chorus: A F#m N.C.                       D           E                A D E
              I'm gonna take your money! Count your loss when I'm gone.
        A F#m N.C.              D       E                  (N.C.) D A
              I'm alright Jack! Lookin' after number one

E                            E D A
If I want something I get it
E                              E D A
Don't matter what I have to do
E
I'll step on your face, on your mother's grave
D            A      E
never underestimate me I'm nobody's fool

A    E    A    E
oh oh ho, oh oh ho

E                          D A
I don't owe no-one nothing
E                             D A
If it's me, they must come to
E     E     E      E
Stop, look, think, baby
D        A          E
I always get what I want and I want to get you

(Repeat chorus)

E                    A      E                     A
  Don't wanna be like you, I don't wanna live like you
E                      A     D     A     E     A(strum)
  Don't wanna talk like you, you,  you,  at all

Don't give me charity
F#
Don't give me peace and love or the good lord above,

I'll never need anybody's help in any way.

(Repeat chorus)

F#                      B     E     B       F# (strum)
  Don't wanna talk like you, you,  at all

F#                 F#                 F#                   B
I'm gonna be like, I'm gonna be like, I'm gonna be like - Me!
