This was originally tabbed by letdown00 (to my knowledge), 
and many thanks to them, but they got the chorus and solo wrong, 
so I've edited it to be more right. 
(I'd like to state that whilst not 100% right, this version is MORE right)

Standard Tuning: EADGBe

G/F# : (2x0033)


VERSE I
                     G            G/F#    Em
Billy Liar's got his hands in his pockets
                    A                         Em
Staring over at his neighbor's, knickers down.
A                          Em        A        D
He's got his knickers down.
                 G        G/F#     Em
So the summer is eternity for you?
                       A                        Em
Sleeping in until your father's shaking you down
A                     Em        A
He's shaking you down.
        G
And the mailroom shift gets a real short shrift
       F#m                                                   Em
As you dole out the packages, no-one seems to want you around
A              Em    A
All skullking around.

CHORUS
D        F#m      Bm      G
Let your legs loll on the lino
D         F#m         Bm        G    
'Til your sinews spoil
D        F#m      Bm     G
Will you stay here for awhile, dear,
D        F#m  Bm       Em
'Til the radio,  plays something familiar?
      A                   D
Plays something familiar.

VERSE II (Same Chords)

All a-drifting, he's the nogood boyo
Sent a-fishing for a whalebone corset frame
(The only catch all day)

So he sits and lets the current take him
A gentle breeze will leave his pants in disarray
And at his ankles laid.

As he drifts to sleep with a moan and a weep
He is decked by a Japanese geisha with a garland of pearls
How she twists and twirls!

CHORUS
D        F#m      Bm      G
Let your legs loll on the lino
D         F#m         Bm        G    
'Til your sinews spoil
D        F#m      Bm     G
Will you stay here for awhile, dear,
D        F#m  Bm     Em
'Til the radio plays something familiar
      A
Plays something familiar
      Em
Plays something familiar
      A
Plays something familiar
