          Patricia The Stripper
      Words & Music: Chris De Burgh

[Verse]
F                           A7
Dennis is a menace with his 'anyone for tennis?'
        Dm                              F7
and beseeching me to come and keep the score.
     Bb                      Bbm
And Maud say 'Oh Lord, I'm so terribly bored.
  F             Dm      G7/D   C7
I really can't stand it anymore.'
          F                     A7
I'm going out to dinner with a gorgeous singer
      Dm                              F7
to a little place I found down by the quay
    Bb                    Bbm
her name is Patricia, she calls herself Delicia
        F           Dm            G9
and the reason isn't very hard to see.

C7        F                                  A7
She says 'God made her a sinner just to keep fat man thinner 
        Dm                               F7
as they tumble down in heaps before her feet.
      Bb                         Bbm
They hang around in groups like battle weary troops
          F             Dm                    G9
one can often see them queue right down the street.
C7         Bb                      A7
You see Patricia (or Delicia) not only is a singer
     Dm                      G7   C7 
she also removes all her clothing for
  Bb                 C                    F    Bb    F
Patricia is the best   stripper in town.

[Chorus]
   F    C7     F                      D7
    And with a swing of her hips she started to strip
          Gm                    C7
    to tremendous applause she took of her drawers
                F                        D7
    and with a lick of her lips she undid all her clips
                  Dm                 C
    and threw it all in the air - ev'rybody stared
               Bb                         A7
    and as the last piece of clothing fell on the floor
              F                        D7
    the police were banging on the door
           Gm               C              F     Bb
    on a saturday night in nineteen-twentyfour.
              F         C7
    Take it away boys.

    F | D7 | Gm(7) | C7 | F | D7 | Gm  C | F  
    {instrumental}
    
[Verse]
C7        F                         A7
But poor Patricia was arrested and everyone detested
    Dm                             F7
the manner in which she was exposed
Bb                     Bbm
later on in court well everybody thought
     F             Dm                 G9
a summer run in jail would be proposed.
C7         Bb                     A7
But the judge said 'Patricia, or may I say Delicia,
     Dm                           G7 C7
the facts of this case lie before me case dismissed 
Bb                     C              F    Bb    F
this girl was in her working clothes.

[Chorus]
    And with a swing of her hips...
               Bb                         A7
    and as the last piece of clothing fell on the floor
              F                        D7
    the police were yelling at the door
           Gm               C7                F  F7 D7
    on a saturday night in nineteen-twentyfour -
           Gm7              C7                 F  F7  Bb  Bbm  C7
    on a saturday night in nineteen-twentyfour.
          F7
    Oh yeah.
    
    
{G9 = xx0201}

Wrong chord on "threw it all in the air" should be a Gm not Dm but great work
