-----------------------------------..........................

*from 'The Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse' (1968)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Bb)


Intro:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F# (x2)

Verse 1:

G                 Bm/F#          Em    Bm/F#
 You who speak to me, across the fence,
          G     Bm/F#  Am, E
Of common sense.
    Am          Am/maj           Am7
How your tomato plant will win a prize;
              Am6              Am   D7           G
Won't that be nice? and by the way... how's your wife?

     C              Caug                Am7                   D7
Your holidays, were spent in Spain, you went by train; you'll go again.

Verse 2:

G                 Bm/F#     Em            Bm/F#
 Have you seen me bullfight poster on the wall?
       G              Bm/F#        Am     E
Do you know the 'appy memory it re-calls?
         Am            Am/maj     Am7      Am6
Here's a photograph of me with my son, Ted;
          Am               D7           G
That's me cousin, with his hanky on his head!

   C                      Caug
We booked in at our 'otel just after two,
          Am7                  D7
And met a family from Bradford that we knew.

Interlude:

G               G7
 Ooh, what melo-dy-a! (Burp!)

Chorus 1:

G        Bm/F#       Em        Bm/F#
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
G               Bm/F#     Am  E
 Separates next door from me.
Am       Am/maj      Am7       Am6
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
    Am   D7 (n.C)   (G)
Oh, Mama! Belongs to me!

Interlude:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F# (x2)

Sax Solo:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F#, G  Bm/F#, Am  E
Am  Am/maj, Am7  Am6, Am7  D7, G
C  Caug, Am7  D7

Chorus 2:

G        Bm/F#       Em        Bm/F#
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
G        Bm/F#    Am  E
 Semi-de-tach-ed, ah!
Am       Am/maj      Am7       Am6
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
    Am   D7 (n.C)   (G)
Oh, Mama! Belongs to moi!

Interlude:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F# (x2)

Verse 3:

         G            Bm/F#         Em    Bm/F#
I have a sister in To-ronto who's a nurse,
         G            Bm/F#         Am   E
And I've had a bit of bother laying turf.
     Am        Am/maj               Am7      Am6
It's life, not books that taught me all I've learned,
Am            D7              G
 Woop, in the b'oven, my rice pudding's getting burned!

      C                                Caug
'Ere, have you seen the new attachment on me drill?
  Am7                                   D7
I must have the cat put down, 'cos he's ill.

Break:

(n.C)
 Hey, neighbour!

Chorus 3:

G        Bm/F#       Em        Bm/F#
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
G      Bm/F#    Am   E
 I may paint it blue.
Am       Am/maj      Am7       Am6
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
Am        D7 (n.C)
 Keeps me safe from you!...

Interlude: (Glockenspiel)

G

G                    C                   G
 I'm a wobbly jelly, you're a pink blanc-mange,
C             G       A7                 D7
 I'm a sherry trifle, you're a chocolate sponge.
G                            C                 G
 Your dad wears a paper hat, mine inflates bal-loons,
(n.C)
 Whoops! Boodly boop! (Pop!) Here comes a spoon!

Coda:

G        Bm/F#       Em        Bm/F#
 My pink half of the drainpipe,
G          Bm/F#          Am       E                         Am
 Separates me from the in-credibly fascinating story of your life,
          Am/maj      Am7               Am6
And every day to day event, in all it's minute,
               Am                 D7
And tedious at-tention to detail...
             G
And was it a Thursday or a Wednesday?

    C
Or, oh, no, it wasn't though.
                              Caug
Oh, who cares anyway, because I do not.
                           Am7
So Norman if you're normal,
                                          D7
I intend to be a freak for the rest of my life.
                            G            Bm/F#               Em
And I shall baffle you with cabbages and rhinoceroses in the kitchen,
             Bm/F#         G               Bm/F#
Incessant quotations from "Now We Are Six",
                               Em
Through the mouthpiece of Lord Snooty's,
Bm/F#             G            Bm/F# Em     Bm/F#
 Giant poisoned e-lectric head.   So there...

Outro:

G  Bm/F#, Em  Bm/F# (x6)
