Verse 1: -------- Em F Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief -- G [Lick 1] if he had a rich man in his hand. Em F And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth G [Lick 1] if he could take it from the money man.
Bridge 1: --------- [Lick 2] [Lick 2] Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again. [Lick 2] [Lick 2] She signs no contract, but she always plays the game. [Lick 3] [Lick 3] Dines in Hampstead village, on expense accounted gruel, [Lick 3] C D B and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.
Verse 2: -------- Em F Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys: G [Lick 1] would rather make it with a letching grey. Em F Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung, G [Lick 1] who watches through the railings as they play.
Bridge 2: --------- [Lick 2] [Lick 2] Cross-eyed Mary, finds it hard to get along. [Lick 2] [Lick 2] She's a poor man's rich girl, and she'll do it for a song. [Lick 3] [Lick 3] She's a rich man stealer, but her favour's good and strong: [Lick 3] C D B She's the Robin Hood of Highgate -- helps the poor man get along.

Verse 2/3: ---------- [Lick 4] Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys: would rather make it with a letching grey. [Lick 4] Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung, who watches through the railings as they play.
