 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
  Ooh, ooh, ooh.
 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
  Ooh, ooh, ooh.

Verse 1:

 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
     Tryin' to keep her outta sight.
 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
     When up popped the wife.

 A7
I said, "I can't find nothing wrong,
With being friends 'cos sometimes;
 D7C7A7
     She lets me use her car."  
 A7
She said; "If you can't find,
Nothing wrong in your mind,
You'd better;
 D7C7A7
     Find something wrong with hers.

Bridge 1:

 D7G7D7
So I began to try to ex-plain,
 C7
That it just wasn't, just wasn't,
 G7D7
  Just wasn't what she thought.

 A7
Now I'd better find something,
To do with my time;
 D7C7
Fact is;  
 A7
I've just been caught.

Chorus 2:

 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
  Ooh, ooh, ooh.
 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
 D7C7A7
  Ooh, ooh, ooh.

A7, D7 C7 A7 (x8)

Verse 2:

 A7
  Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
 D7C7A7
     Tryin' to get away clean.
 A7
  Sneaking through the alley with Sally;
 D7C7A7
     When up popped the queen.

 A7
  I talk double talk,
Anything's trouble talk,
 D7C7A7
Catching myself in lies.    
 A7
  Mama, just look at me as if I was crazy;
 D7C7A7
     She didn't even bat an eye-lid.

Bridge 2:

 D7G7D7
So I began to try to ex-plain,
 C7
That it just wasn't, just wasn't,
 G7D7
  Just wasn't what she thought.

 A7
Now I'd better find something,
To do with my time;
 D7C7
Fact is;  
 A7
I've just been caught, just been caught.

 A7
  Sneaking sally through the alley,
