Title:   Go 'Round Again
Artist:  Benny Hill
Chords:  C, G7, C7, F
This song can be found on the CD "Benny Hill... The Best Of" which includes
14 of his comedy classics plus his theme song, Yakity Sax.

Benny sang this song in a voice slightly like Bob Dylan's.

The [C]couple looked down at their newborn child in their shack that was
   falling to [G7]bits,
The mother said, "Let's call it Johnny," the father said, "Let's call it
And when Johnny was four, his pa was too poor to buy toys from the
   [C7]Christmas shop [F]shelves,
So he just fired his gun and he [C]told his young son Father [G7]Christmas
   had shot him[C]self.

Now [C]one day his ma took him to a fair and he went on a round-a[G7]bout,
He giggled with glee, "I wanna go wee!"  Everyone heard the boy [C]shout.
She took him by the hand, from the fairground they ran, she took him be-
   [C7]hind A big [F]tree,
She said, "There, shut your row, you can [C]go wee now," he took a
   [G7]deep  breath and went, "[C]Wheeee!"

Then he said, "[C]Please can I go 'round again, ma?  Please can I go
      'round A[G7]gain?
   Oh, I love the sound of the merry-go-round, please let me go 'round
   I'll do all of my homework, I'll even kiss [C7]old Auntie [F]Gwen,
   And I won't shout out loud, ma, [C]I'll make you proud, [G7]please let
      me go 'round a[C]gain."

At [C]twelve he danced with his gym mistress, she said, "Johnny, you're
   wicked and you're [G7]bad,
I wish I was your ma for just half an hour," John said, "I'll have a word
   with my [C]dad."
Then someone dropped a lit cigarette down the back of her dress but
   [C7]she didn't [F]shout,
She just walked off the floor and she [C]said, "What a bore, I shall
   [G7]just have to sit this one [C]out."

And Johnny said, "[C]Please can we go 'round again, Miss Rhodes, please
      can we go 'round a[G7]gain?
   I've not been this close to a woman before and heck knows when I will
   Oh, I tell you true, I could dance with you 'til the cows come [C7]home
      and [F]then,
   I could dance with the cows, so [C]please, Miss Rhodes, [G7]please let
      me go 'round a[C]gain."

At [C]18, Irene with the hourglass figure got him in a heck of a [G7]fix,
Her pa came 'round and Johnny was found with his hands on a quarter to
They were married the next day in the church by the bay, 10 a.m., the
   [C7]15th of [F]June,
She looked lovely in white as she said, "[C]Johnny, tonight "  He said,
   "To [G7]heck with tonight, this after[C]noon!"

"[C]Then can we go 'round again?  In the meantime can we go 'round
   I tell ya I haven't felt like this since I can't remember [C]when.
   And seein' you lay there beside me, oh it damn near [C7]blows my
   Oh please can we go 'round a[C]gain and again, and then [G7]'round
      again one more [C]time?"

Johnny's [C]mother-in-law came to live next door, she had a tongue that
   stung like a [G7]bee,
She said, "I'll dance on your grave," Johnny said, "That's brave, 'cause
   I'm gonna be buried at [C]sea."
At 50 he took to coming home late, he wasn't a [C7]creature of [F]habit.
If he came home early his wife thought he was [C]up to something, if he
   came home [G7]late she thought that he'd [C]had it.

He was [C]just 91 on the day he passed on, it was the way that he hoped it
   would [G7]be,
He was shot by a beauty queen's husband in a fit of jealous[C]y.
As he lay on the floor a priest was sent forward, and with his last breath
   [C7]Johnny con[F]fessed,
"I spent all of my money on [C]woman and drink and like a [G7]fool I
   squandered the [C]rest."

"[C]Lord, can I go 'round again?  Please can I go 'round a[G7]gain?
   Oh, I can't believe that I'll never see your sky or your trees a[C]gain.
   Oh, the girls and the wine and the living were fine, I shouldn't com-
      [C7]plain but [F]then,
   You give damned short rides on this [C]fairground of yours, Lord, oh
      [G7]please let me go 'round a[C]gain."

This is one in a series of Benny Hill songs I've learned by ear.  Most of
these songs have only three chords which makes it easy figure them out.  I
might have missed some chords or put the wrong ones down, but the basic
structure is there at any rate.  I welcome any comments, corrections or
suggestions for improvement.
