(h = hammer-on, p = pull-off)

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

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

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

CHORUS (play INTRO):

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

MIDDLE EIGHT : D E G D D E G D

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

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

INTRO (instrumental)

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