Laughing in .......
Or maybe her.......
Verse 1:
-------- 

 EmF
   Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief --
 Lick 1
G                            
if he had a rich man in his hand.
 EmF
  And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth
 Lick 1
   G                                 
if he could take it from the money man.
Bridge 1:
--------- 

 Lick 2Lick 2
Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again.
 Lick 2Lick 2
She signs no contract, but she always plays the game.
 Lick 3Lick 3
Dines in Hampstead village, on expense accounted gruel,
 Lick 3
                    C                D       B
and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.
Verse 2:
-------- 

 EmF
 Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:
 Lick 1
      G                               
would rather make it with a letching grey.
 EmF
 Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
 Lick 1
    G                                     
who watches through the railings as they play.
Bridge 2:
--------- 

 Lick 2Lick 2
Cross-eyed Mary, finds it hard to get along.
 Lick 2Lick 2
She's a poor man's rich girl, and she'll do it for a song.
 Lick 3Lick 3
She's a rich man stealer, but her favour's good and strong:
 Lick 3
                                       C            D     B
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate -- helps the poor man get along.
