I p[C]ut on my raincoat to m[D]ake it rain
and s[Em]ure enough the skies opened [D]up again
I dr[C]eamed of you as I w[D]alked to the shops,
you were d[Bm]ancing with the wallies on [Em]Top of the Pops
[C]once [C/B]in a wh[D]ile
Gen[C]nady Ge[C/B]rasimov d[D]rops his smile
and y[C]ou can see that his a[D]im's
a portf[Bm]olio pregnant with g[Em]ains
he's b[C]een [C/B]up all n[D]ight
moving the goalp[C]ost[C/B]s[Am] [G]
like a j[Bm]ackdaw with a fiery brand,
s[Em]pread the news all over this land
[Am]robin hood and his merry men
are n[D]ever never never coming back again
