The Kinks - A Well Respected Man

Intro: G


Verse 1

        C       Em      Am
Cos' he gets up in the morning,
       C       Em       Am
And he goes to work at nine,
       C          Em      Am
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
         C          Em     Am
Gets the same train every time.
          C        Em          Am       C
cause his world is built round punctuality,
   Em    Am
It never fails.

Chorus 

         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C   Em  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em      Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.


Verse 2

        C      Em      Am
And his mother goes to meetings,
          C      Em        Am
While his father pulls the maid,
        C         Em        Am
And she stirs the tea with councillors,
        C        Em      Am
While discussing foreign trade,
        C       Em       Am
And she passes looks, as well as bills
   C     Em          Am
At every suave young man.


Chorus 

         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C   Em  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em      Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.


Verse 3

       C         Em      Am
And he likes his own backyard,
       C         Em        Am
And he likes his fags the best,
          C      Em       Am
Cos' he's better than the rest,
        C         Em         Am
And his own sweat smells the best,
        C       Em       Am
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,
     C     Em     Am
When Peter passes on.

Chorus 

         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C   Em  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em      Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.


Verse 4

       C         Em         Am
And he plays at stocks and shares,
       C       Em     Am
And he goes to the regatta,
       C          Em        Am 
And he adores the girl next door,
          C     Em     Am
Cos' he's dying to get at her,
        C      Em        Am
But his mother knows the best about,
    C    Em     Am 
The matrimonial stakes

Chorus 

         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so good,
         C   Em Am
And he's oh, so fine,
         C   Em  Am
And he's oh, so healthy,
       C    Em      Am
In his body and his mind.
       F              Em
He's a well respected man about town,
F                     D          G      C G
Doing the best things so conservatively.
