Verse 1

      [C      C/B]    Am              
Cos he gets up in the morning 
      [C      C/B]    Am
and he goes to work at nine
      [C         C/B]    Am                     
And he comes back home at five thirty, 
      [C         C/B]    Am
gets the same train every time
      [C         C/B]    Am           
Cos his world is built on punctuality,
[C      C/B]     Am
it never fails


      [C      C/B]    Am
Cos he's oh so good, 
      [C      C/B]    Am
and he's oh so fine
      [C      C/B]    Am     
And he's oh so healthy in 
      [C      C/B]    Am
his body and his mind
F            Em
He's a well respected man about town
F                     D          [G  G/C] G
Doing the best things so conservatively

Verse 2

And his mother goes to meetings 
while his father pulls the maid
And she stirs the tea with councilors 
while discussing foreign trade
And she passes looks as well as 
bill's at every suave young man


Verse 3

And he likes his own backyard 
and he likes his fags the best
Cos he's better than the rest 
and his arm sweat smells the best
And he hope to grab his father's loot 
when Pater passes on


Verse 4

And he plays the stocks 
and shares and he goes to a regatta
He adores the girl next door 
cos he's dying to get at her
But his mother knows the best 
about the matrimonial stakes
