 You who speak to me, across the fence,

Of common sense.

Do you know the 'appy memory it re-calls?

That's me cousin, with his hanky on his head!

We booked in at our 'otel just after two,

 Separates next door from me.
Am       Am/maj      Am7       Am6

         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                                C+
'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,
(n.C)
 You...!

Interlude:

(Glockenspeil):

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#
 Separates me from,
       Am       E                         Am
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.
                              C+
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.
And I shall baffle you,

     G            Bm/F#               Em
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#
 Giant poisoned e-lectric head.
   Em    Bm/F#
So there......

Outro:

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