Intro:

Verse 1:

 B
  My old man,
Wore three peice whistles;
He was never home for long.
Drove a bus,
For London Transport;
He knew where he belonged.
 B7/C7
     Number 18 down to Euston,
 B7/C7C7B7E
     Double decker move a -long,
 B7/C7C7B7E

 AF#E
  My old man.

Verse 2:

 B
  Later on,
He drove a Roller,
Chauffeuring,
For foreign men.
Dropped his aitches,
On occation,
Said Cor Blimey!
Now and then.
 B7/C7

In the Standard,

Verse 3:

 B
  Wouldn\'t never,
Let his guvnors,
Call him Billy,
He was proud.
Personal reasons,
Make a difference;
His last boss,
Was allowed.

 B7/C7
     Perhaps he had,
To keep his distance,
 B7/C7C7B7E
     Made a racket when he rowed,
 B7/C7C7B7E
     Made a racket when he rowed.
 AF#E
  My old man,
 AF#E
  My old man.

Verse 4:

 B
  My old man,
Was fairly handsome,
He smoked too many cigs.
Lived in one room,
In Victoria,
He was tidy,
In his digs.
 B7/C7
     Had to have an operation,
 B7/C7C7B7E
     When his ulcer got to big,

Verse 5:

 B
  Seven years,
Went out the window,
We met as one to one.
Died before we\'d,
Done much talking,
But relations had begun.
 B7/C7
     All the while,
We though about each other,
 B7/C7C7B7E
     All the best mate from your son,
