Sunny afternoon

Kinks



 DmC
        The taxman's taken all my dough
 FC
        And left me in my stately home
 AA/GA/FA/EDm
        Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon
 D7G7
        Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
 C7FA7
        I got a big fat mama tryin' to break me 
 DmG7
        And I love to live so pleasantly
 D7G7C7
        Live this life of luxury
 FA7DmDm/CDm/BDm/Bb
        Lazin' on a sunny afternoon   
 AA/GA/FA/E
        In the summertime  
My girlfriend's run off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty
Now I'm sittin' here
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer
All I've got's this sunny afternoon
Help me, help me, help me sail away
Or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime
