----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Intro]
Am  Bb  Am  C
Am  Bb  Am  C


[Verse 1]
              Am                   Bb
The smiled so much and waved their flags
       Am                      C
As she saluted to the military band
            Am               Bb
Most of the people failed to see
                 Am                  C
She had a broken bottle in the other hand


[Pre-Chorus]
        F    F    N.C. F
And she took them by   surprise
         Dm   Dm   N.C.   Dm
When she took them by the throat
     Bb                                       C
And said - "My friend - you're not allowed to vote", Oooh
         F     F  N.C. F
But they shook it all  off,
       Dm Dm   N.C.      Dm
With a nervous laugh and cough,
      Bb                                     C
"Next time," she said "I'll let those people choke-----"


[Chorus]
    F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming
F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming


[Transition]
Am  Bb  Am  C


[Verse 2]
             Am           Bb
She polished all upon the wall
            Am                      C
And ran her hands right through her hair
          Am                     Bb
So if the lady took the time to call
        Am                             C
All the houses on the street would not compare


[Pre-Chorus]
        F       F  N.C.   F
And she thought it really funny
         Dm Dm  N.C. Dm
That she hadn't any  money
    Bb                            C
But those she looked up to, they had, Oooh
         F     F  N.C. F
But they shook it all  off
       Dm Dm   N.C.      Dm
With a nervous laugh and cough
    Bb                               C
And when they took her riches it was sad----


[Chorus]
    F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming
F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming


[Harmonica Solo]
Am  Bb  Am  C
Am  Bb  Am  C


[Chorus]
    F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming
F
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
    Bb
And even when their kids were starving
C
They all thought the queen was charming


[Outro]
Am  Bb
