[Verse 1]
                          Dm
You haven't got a bloody clue,
               E                          Am     Am/G Am
You never ever do the things that proper dogs do,
                       Dm
Like finding your way home,
                     G               C      Csus2 C
Or what to do with bones, as proper dogs do,
      F            E               Am        C7
You walk in your sleep, you feel worried by sheep,
      F
Oh, Jesus Christ,
            E                    Am     Am/G  Am
I've never ever known a dog as clueless  as   you!


[Verse 2]
                          Dm
You haven't got a bloody clue,
                   E                            Am
If I threw you a stick you'd bring me back a lampshade,
Am/G  Am                        Dm
           You stare at empty chairs,
                       G                        C    Csus2 C
When there is no one there, you listen to the radio,
     F            E               Am           C7
You niff ladies frocks, and the crotches of clergymen,
  F
Jesus Christ,
            E                    Am     Am/G  Am
I've never ever known a dog as clueless  as   you!


[Verse 3]
            Dm7  G7    C          E/B
But, you are so nice,   ...oh, so nice,
     F             E           Am           C7
You bark at the darkness, you fart at our parties,
           Dm7  G7     C          E/B
But, you're so nice,    ...oh, so nice,
   F           E        Am   Am/G  Am
Visitors who visit us, visit  us  twice!


[Verse 4]
                          Dm
You haven't got a bloody clue,
                 E                           Am     Am/G Am
I know no other dog that's got a favourite handbag,
                        Dm
You've got no sense of smell,
                 G                       C        Csus2 C
You cannot even tell a policeman from a lamp post,
      F            E             Am              C7
You sleep and you eat, and, God knows, you ex - crete,
      F
Oh, Jesus Christ,
            E                    Am     Am/G  Am
I've never ever known a dog as clueless  as   you!


[Verse 5]
           Dm7  G7    C          E/B
But you are so nice,   ...oh, so nice,
   F          E              Am            C7
Burglars a - dore you, they come back for more of you,
Dm7  G7    C           E/B
 So nice,    ...ah, so nice,
   F           E         Am   Am/G  Am
Burglars who burgle us, burgle us twice!


[Verse 6]
                         Dm
You haven't got a bloody clue,
                    E                     Am     Am/G Am
I couldn't give a toss, because I rather like it,
                   Dm
I couldn't give a toss,
                   G                          C      Csus2 C
Because you do not do the things that proper dogs do,
           F                E
You don't bite, you don't fight,
         Am          C7
There is no kind of spite about you,
  F                       E
Jesus Christ, I'm pretty sure,
                       Am    Am/G  Am
Would love a dog as clueless  as   you!


[Verse 7]
                Dm7 G7    C         E/B
Because you are so nice,  ...ah, so nice,
      F           E            Am            C7
No howling, nor prowling, or scowling, no growling,
    Dm7  G7   C          E/B
Just so nice,  ...oh, so nice,
   F         E            Am      Am/G  Am
People who think of you, think of you  twice!

(Additional verse)

[Verse 8]
        Dm7 G7    C     E/B
You are so nice,  ...so nice,
      F           E               Am         C7
So senseless and weak, so de - fenceless and meek,
           Dm7 G7     C       E/B
But you're so  nice,    ...so nice,
  F         E          Am       Am/G  Am
Jesus will have you in his par - a - dise!
