'em right), and there's a little more than DAE here.

According to _Beatles Complete_ (Hal Leonard publishing, 1987 - a most
questionable source):

POLYTHENE PAM
(The Beatles)
D/E A E (x 2)
E D A E
Well, you should see Polythene Pam
D A E
She's so good looking but she looks like a man
G B
Well, you should see her in drag, dressed in her polythene bag
C D E
Yes, you should see Polythene Pam.
C D E
Yeah, yeah, yeah

D/E A E (x 2)

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the _News of the World_
Yes, you could say she was attractively built.
Yeah, yeah, yeah

D/E A E (x2)
D A E (x 9?)

[Geez, while I'm at it, here's She Came in through the Bathroom Window.

A D
She came in through the bathroom window
A F#m D
protected by a silver spoon
A F#m D
But now she sucks her thumb and wonders
D7 A
by the banks of her own lagoon

(A) Dm
Didn't anybody tell her?
A Dm
Didn't anybody see?
G7 C
Sunday's on the phone to Monday
G7 C (go to 2/4 for the C)
Tuesday's on the phone to me

She said she'd always been a dancer
Worked in fifteen clubs a day
And though I thought I knew the answer
Well, I knew but I could not say

So I quit the police department
and got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
she could steal but she could not rob

Chorus

[Hope this isn't too far wrong]
