Sunny afternoon  Kinks



        The t[Dm]axman's taken a[C]ll my dough
        And l[F]eft me in my st[C]ately home
        [A]Lazin'[A/G] on a [A/F]sunny [A/E]aftern[Dm]oon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon
        [D7]Save me, save me, save me from this squ[G7]eeze
        I got a big [C7]fat mama tryin' to break [F]me[A7]
        And I [Dm]love to live so pl[G7]easantly
        L[D7]ive this life of [G7]luxu[C7]ry
        [F]Lazin' on a s[A7]unny after[Dm]noon[Dm/C] [Dm/B] [Dm/Bb]
        In the s[A]ummer[A/G]time[A/F] [A/E]
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

A[a]nd I can't s[G7]ail my yacht, he's t[C]aken ev'ryth[G7]ing I've got.
A[E7]ll I've got 's this sunny aftern[a]oon.
S[A7]ave me, save me, save me from this s[D7]queeze,
I've got a b[G]ig fat mamma tryin' to break [C]me.[E7]
And I l[a]ove to live so pl[D]easantly, l[a]ive this life of l[D7]uxury
l[C]azing on a s[E7]unny aftern[a]oon,[E7]
in s[a]ummertime[E7], in s[a]ummertime[E7], in s[a]ummertime[E7].
My [a]girlfriend's gone off w[G7]ith my car, a[C]nd gone back to her [G7]ma and pa
t[E7]elling tales of drunkeness and c[a]ruelty.
N[a]ow I'm s[G7]itting here, s[C]ipping at my ice-[G7]cold beer,
