D G
I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
D A
Yeah I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
D F# Bm
I went up to the country park and hung around till after dark
G
And the girls got home
D
Till the girls got home

D G
Did I tell you 'bout the one I know, she's on the rag?
D A
She spent the summer day inside her sleeping bag
D F# Bm
Yeah she spent the summer day inside until it's time to go to work
D
And she works all night
G
Cause the girl's all right

MIDDLE FOUR : D E G D

D G
The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
D A
And it's like your holiday whenever you go round
D F# Bm
We always have a laugh and then we all get in the bath
G
To save on the leccy bill
D
Me and Jo and Phil

CHORUS (play INTRO):

Bm G
I had to leave them in the morning
D
I left the keys around the way
A
I had to go to work
Bm G
I had to leave them in the morning
D
I left the keys down in the caff
A
I had to catch a bus

MIDDLE EIGHT : D E G D D E G D

D G
And when Jo was short of cash I had to give her some
D A
But I didn't really mind 'cause I was fit for once
D F# Bm
So we paid the leccy bill, we got the shopping and we still had
G
Some for the cinema
D
So we all went out

D G
She asked me "Do I need to lose a bit of weight?"
D A
And I said "Now don't be stupid 'cause you're looking great"
D F# Bm
Now we call her String Bean Jean because the label on her jeans says
G D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
G D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
G D
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
G A
Seven to eight years old...

CHORUS (play INTRO)

INTRO (instrumental)

End on D/F# i.e. a D chord with thumb on E-string, 2nd fret.
