[Intro]

Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb   A  A/G  
A/F  A/E
Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb   A  A/G  
A/F  A/E


[Verse]

     Dm             C7
The taxman's taken all my dough
     F              C7
And left me in my stately home
Dm     Dm/C  Dm/B Dm/Bb  Dm
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
               C7
And I can't sail my yacht
       F          C7
He's taken everything I've got
Dm        Dm/C       Dm/B Dm/Bb Dm
All I've got's this sunny afternoon


[Chorus]

D                  D7                   G   G7
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
            C7                       F     A7
I got a big fat mama tryin' to break me
      Dm                G
And I love to live so pleasantly
 D7                  G7
Live this life of luxury
F            A         Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime
         Dm     Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
In a summertime
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime


[Verse]

    Dm             C7
My girlfriend's run off with my car
     F              C7
And gone back to her ma and pa
Dm     Dm/C  Dm/B Dm/Bb  Dm
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty
               C7
Now I'm sittin' here
       F          C7
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer
Dm        Dm/C       Dm/B Dm/Bb Dm
Lazin


[Chorus]

D                  D7                   G   G7
Help me, help me, help me sail away
            C7                       F     A7
Or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
      Dm                G
And I love to live so pleasantly
 D7                  G7
Live this life of luxury
F            A         Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime
         Dm     Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
In a summertime
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime


[Chorus]

D                  D7                   G   G7
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
            C7                       F     A7
I got a big fat mama tryin' to break me
      Dm                G
And I love to live so pleasantly
 D7                  G7
Live this life of luxury
F            A         Dm  Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime
         Dm     Dm/C  Dm/B  Dm/Bb
In a summertime
         A       A/G  A/F  A/E
In a summertime
