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

[Em]  Who would be a poor man, a begga[F]rman, a thief --
G                           [Lick 1]
if he had a rich man in his hand.
[Em] And who would steal the candy from a l[F]aughing baby's mouth
   G                                [Lick 1]
if he could take it from the money man.
Bridge 1:
--------- 

[Lick 2]         [Lick 2] 
Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again.
[Lick 2]               [Lick 2] 
She signs no contract, but she always plays the game.
[Lick 3]                    [Lick 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:
-------- 

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

[Lick 2]        [Lick 2] 
Cross-eyed Mary, finds it hard to get along.
[Lick 2]                      [Lick 2] 
She's a poor man's rich girl, and she'll do it for a song.
[Lick 3]                  [Lick 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.
SOLO:
[-----] [Play Bridge Licks] 
Hey
[Lick 2] [Lick 2] [Lick 2] [Lick 2] 
[Lick 3] [Lick 3] [Lick 3]

Verse 2/3:
---------- 

[Lick 4] 
Laughing in the playground -- gets no kicks from little boys:
would rather make it with a letching grey.
[Lick 4] 
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
who watches through the railings as they play.

[Lick 2]         [Lick 2] 
Cross-eyed Mary, goes jumping in again.
[Lick 2]               [Lick 2]

[Lick 3]                    [Lick 3] 
Dines in Hampstead village, on expense accounted gruel,
[Lick 3]                   C                D       B
and the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.
