[E]When you see some mud [D]up..[A]on the [E]ground..
[E]you lay [D]down so she [A]don`t have to walk a[E]round.[E] [A] [D] [A]
You [E]think that will protect her [D]from [A]the [E]rain..
[E]But you`ll [D]never, [A]ever, stop the [E]pain.[E] [A] [D] [A]
[E]She [A]walks all over you, she [Bm]knows she [A]can..
A C G C C D C D..E
You`re the carpet`re the carpet man.

[E]You take such care to keep that [D]girl`s [A]feet [E]clean..
[E]like she`s some [D]ki..[A]nd of figur[E]ine.[E] [A] [D]
[E]The world`s so far below her it`s [D]not [A]her [E]scene..

[E]She [A]walks all over you, she [Bm]knows she [A]can..
A C G C C D C D..G
You`re the carpet`re the carpet man.
[G]I would think you`d get tired of [D]hurting, [G]every now and [D]then.
[D]It`s [G]lonely down there, [D]that`s for certain, and [G]carpets do get [A]thin.
E A D A (x2)

[E]And that`s when they have to be [D]thrown [A]a..[E]way.
[E]That`s what she`ll [D]say to her[A]self, some sunny [E]day.
[E]And [D]she`ll [A]say, '[E]Come to my wedding,' and of [D]course [A]you [E]do.
[E]And the [D]Groom and her will [A]have a dance on [E]you.[E] [A] [D] [A]
[E]And they'll [A]Waltz all over you, they [Bm]know they [A]can..
[A]You`re the carpet [C]man[G]..[C].....[C]you`re the carpet [D]man.[C] [D]
E A D A (x2)
[E]You`re the carpet [D]man[A]......[A]you`re the carpet [E]man. (x3)(Fade.)
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
