G                      D                                     G
Now outside a bar in Toledo where you had had more than your fill
                     D                                  G
A man was rotating a chicken on a flaming hot infra red grill
                                    D                                     G
And you staggered up to him and you shouted with a voice just like a town cryer
    D#                 A#                     D                     G
Hey mister your barrel organ is broken what's more your monkey's on fire

Chorus
G                  A#             D#                   D
But the Andalucian gypsies have a saying so old but so true
         G                   F            A#      D           G   G D G
That for every man there's a woman and my darling I've chosen you

Verse 2
G                                D                                  G
Now you never ate peas with your knife dear to do so you said was a crime
                         D                                       G
Instead you would take a celery stick and roll 'em down one at a time
                                    D                                  G
If you eat one more dumpling you'll burst dear one day to you I had to say
    D#                   A#            D                          G
You simply said pass the dumplings and stand well back out of the way

Chorus
G                  A#             D#                   D
But the Andalucian gypsies have a saying so old but so true

That for every man there's a woman and my darling I've chosen you

G                       D                                   G
You used to try to make tea cakes with a recipe your mother lent
                             D                                    G
In my mouth they melted like butter in my stomach they set like cement
                       D                                      G
You used to experiment daily with different things that would fill me
       D#                A#                 D                           G
It was just like playing Russian roulette I never knew which meal would kill me

That for every man there's a woman and my darling I've chosen you

G                             D                                 G                             
But on a barge tour you had a hangover it used to hang over the edge
                               D                                         G
If a drunk were to come in and see you he'd go straight out and sign the pledge
                       D                                     G
Oh my wife is one in a million how often have I heard that said
    D#                  A#                           D                 G
But you're not one in a million you look like you're won in a raffle instead

That for every man there's a woman and my darling I've chosen you
