                               E
I'd like you to meet my last queen,
       F#            B
Over there large as life,
            E                A
She's been hanging there for almost a week,
    F#        B
My poor late wife,

  E
What do think of the colour of her skin,
                       A
It has the bloom of a rose,
             E 
You see she begged me to bring a certain painter in,
              F#                               B
And for that picture in her bedroom she would pose,

      A
 Well after a while he was driving me mad,
E
 As you could well understand,
F#
 Sitting in there, day after day,
          B
 With my wife in the palm of his hand, 

         E
It was "Madam please do this and Madam please do that",
                             B
You've never heard such display,

But he didn't mind he was taking his time,
        C       D      E  B
It was me that had to pay,
     E
"Oh Madam I think we should take a walk in the woods,
                         B
You understand it's the light",

And did I mind, no, I was so kind when they,
      C           D             E
Came back in the middle of the night,
        C              D           E      A        E      A
And I swear I'll take care of the painter, oh the painter,

E 
 Well as you can see it was hard for me,
                         A
But something has to be done,
    E                                               F#
She only has eyes for him and his lies, and as for me,
                           B
Not a glance, not a single one,
   A
My orders were severe and she disappeared,
E
 It really was such a shame,
               F# 
And when they told me she was dead I broke down and said,
            B
"It's that painter, it's him, he's to blame,"

           E
With his "Madam please do this and Madam please do that",
                             B
You've never heard such display,

But he didn't mind he was taking his time,
        C       D      E  B
It was me that had to pay,
     E
"Oh Madam I think we should take a walk in the woods,
                         B
You understand it's the light",

And did I mind, no, I was so kind when they,
      C           D             E
Came back in the middle of the night,
       C             D            E      A
And I hope it's the rope for the painter,
           C               D           E        A
When he's found, it's hellbound for the painter,
               E      A
I'll get that painter...
