Patricia The Stripper
Words & Music: Chris De Burgh
[F]Dennis is a menace with his [A7]'anyone for tennis?'
and bese[Dm]eching me to come and keep the s[F7]core.
And M[Bb]aud say 'Oh Lord, I'm so[Bbm] terribly bored.
I [F]really can't s[Dm]tand it [G7/D]anymore[C7].'
I'm going [F]out to dinner with a g[A7]orgeous singer
to a l[Dm]ittle place I found down by the [F7]quay
her [Bb]name is Patricia, she [Bbm]calls herself Delicia
and the [F]reason isn't[Dm] very hard to [G9]see.
[C7]She says '[F]God made her a sinner just to keep [A7]fat man thinner
as they [Dm]tumble down in heaps before her f[F7]eet.
They h[Bb]ang around in groups like b[Bbm]attle weary troops
one can of[F]ten see them q[Dm]ueue right down the st[G9]reet.
[C7]You see Pat[Bb]ricia (or Delicia) not o[A7]nly is a singer
she a[Dm]lso removes all her clot[G7]hing [C7]for
Pa[Bb]tricia is the best [C] stripper in town.[F] [Bb] [F]
[F] And [C7]with a [F]swing of her hips she s[D7]tarted to strip
to tre[Gm]mendous applause she t[C7]ook of her drawers
and with a l[F]ick of her lips she undid[D7] all her clips
and threw it a[Dm]ll in the air - ev'[C]rybody stared
and as the [Bb]last piece of clothing fell[A7] on the floor
the police[F] were banging on the door[D7]
on a sa[Gm]turday night in n[C]ineteen-twentyf[F]our.[Bb]
Take it aw[F]ay boys.[C7]
F | D7 | Gm(7) | C7 | F | D7 | Gm C | F
[C7]But poor P[F]atricia was arrested and e[A7]veryone detested
the [Dm]manner in which she was exposed[F7]
[Bb]later on in court well [Bbm]everybody thought
a sum[F]mer run in jai[Dm]l would be proposed[G9].
[C7]But the jud[Bb]ge said 'Patricia, or m[A7]ay I say Delicia,
the f[Dm]acts of this case lie before [G7]me [C7]case dismissed
[Bb]this girl was in her wo[C]rking clothes.[F] [Bb] [F]
And with a swing of her hips...
and as the [Bb]last piece of clothing fell[A7] on the floor
the police[F] were yelling at the door[D7]
on a sa[Gm]turday night in n[C7]ineteen-twentyfour[F] -[F7] [D7]
on a sa[Gm7]turday night in n[C7]ineteen-twentyfour.[F] [F7] [Bb] [Bbm] [C7]
Oh yea[F7]h.
