Baggy Trousers

Madness

--------------------...........


 D
  Naughty boys in nasty schools
 F
Head-masters breaking all the rules
 G
  Having fun and playing fools
 AbGF
  Smashing up the woodwork tools
 D
  All the teachers in the pub
 F
  Passing 'round the ready-rub
 G
  Trying not to think of when
 AbGF
The lunch-time bell will ring a-gain.

Chorus 1:

 GGm
  Oh what fun we had
 DDm
But, did it really turn out bad
 GGm
  All I learnt at school
 AAbA
Was how to bend not break the rules
 GGm
  Oh what fun we had
 DDm
But at the time it seemed so bad
 GGm
  Trying different ways
 AAb
To make a difference to

Verse 2:

 GFD
  The Head-master's had enough to-day
 F
  All the kids have gone away
 G
  Gone to fight with next-door's school
 AbGF
  Every term, that is the rule
 D
  Sits alone and bends his cane
 F
  Same old backsides again

 G
  All the small ones tell tall tales
 AbGF
  Walking home and squashing snails.

Chorus 2:

 GGm
  Oh what fun we had
 DDm
But, did it really turn out bad
 GGm
  All I learnt at school
 AAbA
Was how to bend not break the rules
 GGm
  Oh what fun we had
 DDm
But at the time it seemed so bad
 GGm
 Trying different ways
 AEBm
To make a difference to the days

Verse 3:

 D
  Lots of girls and lots of boys
 F
  Lots of smells and lots of noise
 G
  Playing football in the park
 AbGF
  Kicking Pushbikes after dark
 D
  Baggy trousers, dirty shirt
 F
  Pulling hair and eating dirt
 G
  Teacher comes to break it up
 AbGF
  Back of the 'ead with a plastic cup.

Chorus 3:
