Leaning On A Lamppost:Herman's Hermits.
#7 in 1965.

INTRO: (slow) (Original key.)
    C              G
I'm leaning on the lamp,
          F              C
Maybe you think I look a tramp.
   C                   F        G       C  G   
Or maybe you think I'm round to steal a car.
    C             G
But no, I'm not a crook,
           F                   C
And if you think that's what I look,
     C                F       G       C
I'll tell you why and what my motives are.

#1. (Fast.)
    C                               Am
I'm leaning on the lamppost at the corner of the street 
          G                         C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   G      C   Am        G              D          G
Oh me, oh my, in case a certain little lady comes by.

Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous,
She's fabulous, she's beautiful.
    G                     C        G       C      F
And anyone can understand why..I'm leaning on the lamppost
C      F      E      F                D
at the corner of the street in case a certain 
       G          C
little lady comes by.

    C                               Am
She doesn't always get her way, she cannot always get her way.
    G                         C
But anyway I know that she'll try.
   G      C   Am G                D          G
Oh me, oh my, I  hope that little lady comes by.

She's not the kind of girl to be late for.
    C                      Am
But this one I'd break any date for.
  D                            D7
I won't have to ask what she's late for.
      G                    G7          G
She'd never leave me flat..she's not a girl like that.




A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
