 CD
I put on my raincoat to make it rain

 EmD
and sure enough the skies opened up again

 CD
I dreamed of you as I walked to the shops,

 BmEm
you were dancing with the wallies on Top of the Pops

 CC/BD
 once in a while

 CC/BD
Gennady Gerasimov drops his smile

 CD
and you can see that his aim's

 BmEm
a portfolio pregnant with gains

 CC/BD
he's been up all night

 CC/BAmG
moving the goalposts         

 Bm
like a jackdaw with a fiery brand,

 Em
spread the news all over this land

 Am
 robin hood and his merry men

 D
are never never never coming back again

 CD
I don't believe that love should be pain

 EmD
so would  you please rub my back again

 CD
I think it's safe to leave them in the park

 BmEm
let's blow out the candles and kiss in the dark

 CC/BD
 heavens above

 CC/BD
could this sticky stuff really be love

 CDBmEm
 don't get dressed yet   not yet

 CC/BD
we've been up all night

For the picking in the verses, use slow arpeggios, emphasising the bass
notes. In the verses, pick all the "C C/B..." runs like the ones in the
intro.
