C (add pinky on third fret of high E string)
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
          G
Got in my nose
C
As we carried our ladders down the street
                            G
With the wrought-iron gate rows

Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
                            G
And went straight back to work.

      D              C
I'm happy cleaning windows
G       D/F#     EM
Take     my      time
      D              C
I'll see you when my love grows

I'm a working man in my prime
           G

Curiosity killed the cat
Kerouac's Dharma Bums and On The Road

[Second Chorus]

I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows
