Verse 1 
G
Jimmy Bean was a funny lookin' fellah
                             A
If he had another mouth he'd look much sweller
                                                 D
But the "race" queered him from winning a beauty show 
G
It was like a steamboat funnel
                         A
Or a railway arch or the Blackwall Tunnel
                                                      D
When you can't see Jim when he opens his mouth you'll know
D
And as poor Jim goes walkin' about
D                                   D7
You can hear the kids all 'ollerin' out
         
Chorus 
       G
What a mouth what a mouth what a north and south 
              D          G
Blimey what a mouth he's got
         A
Now when he was a baby well oh Gawd luv 'er
                            D
His poor old muvver used to feed him with a shovel
       G                                      D
What a gap poor chap he's never been known to laugh 
G     D          C          G             C          D       G
If he did it's a penny to a quid that his face would fall in 'alf 
 
G D C G  G D G

Verse 2 
G
Mouth so large oh Lord oh lummey
                              A
He can whisper in his own ear ain't it funny
                                                        D
And to quench his thirst now he's gotta take a drink o' mine
   G
He got so drunk one foggy morn
                       A
He lay in the road and started to yawn
                                              D
And a poor old man was delivering coals close by
D      
And as he went to shoot the load
D                             D7
He saw Jim's mouth out in the road
           
Chorus 
       G
What a mouth what a mouth what a north and south 
              D          G
Blimey what a mouth he's got
        A
Now the poor old man bein' a short sighted fellah
                           D
When he saw Jim's mouth he took it for the cellar
       G                                    D
And he shot the lot right into his mouth no joke 
G        D            C             G           C          D        G
Jim poor soul's got a tummy full of coal and he 'corfs' up lumps of coke
            
G D C G   G D G
       
Repeat Chorus 
       G
What a mouth what a mouth what a north and south 
              D          G
Blimey what a mouth he's got
        A
Now the poor old man bein' a short sighted fellah
                           D
When he saw Jim's mouth he took it for the cellar
       G                                    D
And he shot the lot right into his mouth no joke 
G        D            C             G           C          D        G
Jim poor soul's got a tummy full of coal and he 'corfs' up lumps of coke
            
G D C G   G D G

G D C G   G D G
