INTRO   :      Bm       G         D          A           Bm
RIFF    :   A -2-222-4-5---222-4-5---000-4-5-7-5-4h5p4p0---|
            E ----------3---------5----------------------2-|

                      G         D          A
            A -222-4-5---222-4-5---000-4-5-7-5-4h5p40----|
            E --------3---------5------------------------|

                (h = hammer-on, p = pull-off)

  D                           G
I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
       D                         A
Yeah I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
  D                               F#               Bm
I went up to the country park and hung around till after dark
        G
And the girls got home
         D
Till the girls got home

      D                                    G
Did I tell you 'bout the one I know, she's on the rag?
    D                               A
She spent the summer day inside her sleeping bag
         D                           F#                 Bm
Yeah she spent the summer day inside until it's time to go to work
        D
And she works all night
          G
Cause the girl's all right

MIDDLE FOUR     : D E G D

    D                                    G
The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
         D                          A
And it's like your holiday whenever you go round
   D                                F#     Bm
We always have a laugh and then we all get in the bath
               G
To save on the leccy bill
       D
Me and Jo and Phil

CHORUS (play INTRO):

Bm                         G
I had to leave them in the morning
                           D
I left the keys around the way
               A
I had to go to work
Bm                         G
I had to leave them in the morning
                            D
I left the keys down in the caff
                 A
I had to catch a bus

MIDDLE EIGHT    : D E G D  D E G D

D                                      G
And when Jo was short of cash I had to give her some
      D                               A
But I didn't really mind 'cause I was fit for once
      D                               F#              Bm
So we paid the leccy bill, we got the shopping and we still had
             G
Some for the cinema
          D
So we all went out

D                                 G
She asked me "Do I need to lose a bit of weight?"
      D                                       A
And I said "Now don't be stupid 'cause you're looking great"
       D                                     F#           Bm
Now we call her String Bean Jean because the label on her jeans says
         G                             D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
         G                             D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
         G                             D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
         G                A
Seven to eight years old...

CHORUS (play INTRO)

INTRO (instrumental)

End on D/F# i.e. a D chord with thumb on E-string, 2nd fret.
