Uncle Arthur David Bowie
[D]Strikes the bell for [A]five o'clock, Uncle Arthur [D]closes shop,
screws the tops on [A]all the bottles, turns the lights out, [D]locks it up.
[G]Climbs across his [A]bike and he's a[D]way-
[G]cycles past the ga[A]s works, past the [C6]river, down the [A]high street,
back to [G]mother. It's an[A]other empty [D]day.[D#]
[E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]likes his mummy- [E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]still reads comics-
[E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]follows Bat-man-.
[D]Round and round the [A]rumours fly, how he ran a[D]way from mum,
on his thirty-[A]second birthday, told her that he'd [D]found a chum.
[G]Mother cried and [A]raved and yelled and [D]fussed-
[G]Arthur left her [A]no illusion [C6]brought the girl round, [A]save confusion,
[G]Sally was the [A]real thing not just l[D]ust.[D#]
[E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]vanished quickly- [E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]and his new bride-
[E]Uncle A[D]rthur- [A]follows Sally-.
[E]Round and round goes [B]Arthur's head, hasn't eaten [E]well for days,
little Sally [B]may be lovely, but cooking leaves her [E]in a maze.
[A]Uncle Arthur [B]packed his bags and [E]fled.
[A]Back to mother, [B]all's forgiven [D6]serving in the [B]family shop, he [A]gets
his pocket [B]money, he's well [E]fed.[F-]
[F#]Uncle A[E]rthur- [B]passed the gas works- [F#]Uncle A[E]rthur- [B]passed the river-
[F#]Uncle A[E]rthur- [B]down the high street- [F#]Uncle A[E]rthur- [B]follows mother-.
