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


 E
You must have seen,
Parties of Blockheads;
 D
With blotched,
And lagered skin.
 A
  Blockheads,
With food particles,
In their teeth,
 E
What a horrible state,
 DA
They're in.     

Verse 2:

 E
They've got womanly breasts,
Under pale mauve vests,
 D
  Shoes like,
Dead pigs' noses.
 A
  Cornflake packet jacket,
Catalogue trousers,
 E
mouth what never closes.

Verse 3:

 E
You must have seen,
Blockheads,
In raucous teams,
 D
  Dressed up after work.
 A
Who screw their poor,
Old Eileens,
 E
Get sloshed,
 DA
And go berserk.     

Verse 4:

 E
  Rotary,
Accessory watches,
 D
Hire-purchase,
Signet rings.
 A
beauty to,
The bully boys,
 E
No lonely vestige,
 DA
Clings.     

Verse 5:

 E
Why bother at all,
About Blockheads?
 D
Why shouldn't they,
Do as they please?
 A
You know if it came,
To a brainy game,
 E
You could baffle,
 DA
A Blockhead with ease.     

Break:

 D
  How would you like,
One puffing and blowing,
In your ear-hole?
 E
  Or pissing in,
 DA
Your swimming pool?     

Interlude:

E, D A

Verse 6:

 E
  Bigger brained Blockheads,
Often acquire;
 D
  Black and orange cars.
 A
  Premature ejaculation,
Drivers,
 E
Their soft-top's,
 DA
Got roll-bars.     

Verse 7:

 E
  "Fill her up",
They say to Blockheads,
 D
"Go on, stick it,
Where it hurts".
 A
Their shapeless haircuts,
Don't enhance;
 E
Their ghastly,
 DA
Patterned shirts.    

Verse 8:

 E
Why bother at all,
About Blockheads,
 D
Su-perior as you are?
 A
You're thoughtful and kind,
With a well-stocked mind,
 E
Blockhead can't,
 DA
Think very far.     

Break:

 D
  Imagine finding one,
In your laundry basket,
 E
  Banging nails,
 DA
In your big black dog.     

Solo:

E, D, A, D A

Verse 9:

 E
Why bother at all,
About Blockheads?
 D
Why should you,
Care what they do?
 A
'Cos after all,
Is said and done'
 EDA
  You're a Blockhead too.     

Break:

(Instrumental):

D, E, D A

Outro:

 E
  Blockheads,
Blockheads,
 D
  Blockheads,
Blockheads,
 A
  Blockheads,
Blockheads,
 E
  Blockheads,
 DA
Blockheads.    
 E
  Blockheads,
Blockheads.

(Repeat to Fade)
