My Saturday [(Am)]job pays s[C/G]ix and six d[F]own[Dm/A]
A copy boy at the Chr[F]onicle
Five cigar[Am]ettes and two s[C/G]ilver half cr[F]owns[Dm/A]
Meeting Vince at Mark T[F]oney?s in town[Dm/A]
Boy, do we g[F]et around[Am]
Basil sits t[(Am)]here on the t[C/G]able for s[F]ubs[Dm]
But not a part of the Br[F]i-nylon club
Ancient blue sw[Am]eater, too [C/G]old for the j[F]ob
Bored [Dm]out of his mind
With the C[F]olins and Bobs
I?m a jack and a l[C/G]ad[FMaj7]
And I?m up for the w[C]orld[FMaj7]
And I?ve kissed a G[C]ateshead g[F]irl[Am]
He [(Am)]calls for a copy boy, gr[C/G]umpy as h[F]ell[Dm]
Poets have to [F]eat as well
What he wouldn?t g[Am]ive just to w[C]alk out tod[F]ay[Dm]
To have time to th[F]ink about time[Dm]
And young love thr[F]own away
I?m a jack and a l[C]ad[FMaj7]
And I?m up for the w[C]orld[FMaj7]
And I?ve kissed a G[C]ateshead g[F]irl
St[F]arlings swarming a cl[C]oud[E7]
Over Gr[Am]ainger Street
Over the bl[F]ack church
[Dm]Over the Bl[C/E]ack Gate[E7]
And the shadowy [(Am)]Keep

He peers through his [(Am)]wire rims
At the f[C/G]ish and chip w[F]ords[Dm]
He?s supposed to dish [F]up and forget
His drudgery n[Am]ow has become[C] slightly bl[F]urred
By [Dm]one of his Players untipped[F] cigarettes
Bury all j[C]oy[FMaj7]
Put the poems in s[C]acks[FMaj7]
And bury me h[C]ere with the h[F]acks

In the summer the [(Am)]fair
Will stretch [C/G]over the M[F]oor
L[Dm/A]overs will lie and make [F]out in the park
Basil puts [Am]on his old d[C/G]uffel and sc[F]arf[Dm]
And goes out int[F]o the dark
