Blockheads  Ian Dury and The Blockheads
















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











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

Verse 2:

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

Verse 3:

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

Verse 4:

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

Verse 5:

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

Break:

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

Interlude:

E, D A

Verse 6:

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

Verse 7:

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

Verse 8:

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

Break:

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

Solo:

E, D, A, D A

Verse 9:

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

Break:

(Instrumental):

D, E, D A

Outro:

[E] Blockheads,
Blockheads,
[D] Blockheads,
Blockheads,
[A] Blockheads,
Blockheads,
[E] Blockheads,
Blockheads.[D]   [A]
[E] Blockheads,
Blockheads.

(Repeat to Fade)
