Just a week or two ago my poor old Uncle Bill

Went and kicked the bucket and he left me in his Will
    C
The other day I popped around to see poor Auntie Jane
    G
She said your Uncle Bill has left to you a old watch and chain
C
I put it on right across me vest
F
Thought I looked a dandy as it dangled on me chest
C
Just to flash it off I started walking round about
  G
A lot of kiddies followed me and all began to shout

Chorus

G
You look neat talk about a treat

You look dapper from your napper to your feet
C
Dressed in style brand new tile
                            F
And your father's old green tie on
      C
But I wouldn't give you tuppence for your old watch chain

Verse 2
C
I went to the city once and I thought I'd have a spree
G
The Mayor of London he was there that's who I came to see
C
He dashed up at a canter in a carriage and a pair
  G
I shouted Holler boys and threw my hat up in the air
C
Just then the Mayor he began to smile
F
Saw my face and then he shouted Lummy what a dial
C
Started Lord Mayoring an' I thought that I should die
     G
When pointing to my watch and chain and he hollered to me Hi

Chorus

Verse 3
C
Just to have a little bit of fun the other day
G
Made up in my watch and chain I went and drew my pay
C
Then got out with a lot of other colonels on the loose
  G
I got full right up to here in fourp'ny stagger juice
C
One of them said we want a pot of ale
F
Run him to the rag shop and we'll bung him on the scale
C
I heard the fellow say what's in this bundle that you've got
     G
Then whisper to me kindly do you want to lose your lot

Verse 4
C
Shan't forget when I got married to Selena Brown
    G
The way that people laughed at me it made me feel a clown
C
I began to wonder when their dials began to crack
   G
If by mistake I'd got my Sunday trousers front to back
C
I wore my chain on me Darby-kel

The sun was shining on it and made me look a swell
C
The organ started playing and the bells began to ring
   G
Me chain began to rattle so the choir began to sing
