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...
