 Verse:

    Dm             C
The taxman's taken all my dough,
    F             C
and left me in my stately home,
A      A/G  A/F   A/E  Dm
lazin' on a sunny afternoon.
            C
And I can't sail my yacht,
     F          C
he's taken everything I've got.
A        A/G        A/F   A/E  Dm
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

 Chorus:

D                                   G7
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze,
           C7                           F   A7
I've got a big fat mama tryin' to break me.
      Dm              G7
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7
Live this life of luxury,
F           A7         Dm 
lazin' on a sunny afternoon,                In the summertime..
                                            A    A/G A/F A/E
                      |-----------------------------------------|
                      |-----------------------------------------|

                      |--------------------------3-3--1-1--0-0--|

  In the summertime,  in the summertime..

 Verse:

   Dm                   C
My girlfriend's run off with my car,
    F                C
And gone back to her ma and pa.
A       A/G      A/F    A/E      Dm
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
        C
Now I'm sittin' here,
F             C
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer,
A        A/G        A/F   A/E  Dm
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

 Chorus:

D                               G7
Help me, help me, help me sail away,
           C7                            F    A7
or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
      Dm              G7
Cuz I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7
Live this life of luxury,
F           A7         Dm 
lazin' on a sunny afternoon,                In the summertime..
                                            A    A/G A/F A/E
