In the Middle of the Night  Madness

Madness - In The Middle Of The Night
[G]Nice man g[Am]eorge news[Bm]agent on the [Am]corner
[G]Not very [Am]rich but [Bm]never any [Am]poorer
[C]Jaunty old [Dm]george a [Em]happy sixty-[Dm]three
[C]Not very [Dm]tall but [Em]healthier [Dm]than me.
[G]He whistles timeless t[Am]unes as he [Bm]saunters [Am]down the street
[G]Springs in his [Am]legs and [Bm]elastic in his[Am] feet.
[Am]But in the middle of the [E]night
[Am]He steals through your [E]garden
[Bm]Gives your h[F#]osiery a fright
And [Bm]doesn't say [F#]pardon.
As [Am]soft as a [E]breeze
With an [Am]arm full of [E]underwear
On his [Bm]hands and [F#]knees
Dreams [Bm]about the [F#]knicker scare.
[G]Hello there [Am]george new[Bm]sagent on the [Am]corner
[G]How's the [Am]old caryes[Bm] the climate'[Am]s getting warmer
[C]Chatty old [Dm]george a[Em]s you get yo[Dm]ur morning paper
[C]Read about [Dm]the knicker [Em]thiefunderwear[Dm] taker.
[G]Bids you '[Am]good day'a[Bm]s you wander [Am]out the door
[G]Never clos[Am]es early a[Bm]lways cleans [Am]the floor.
[Am]But when darkness hits th[E]e town
And there's[Am] washing on your [E]line
Get y[Bm]our knickers do[F#]wn
Before[Bm] the dreaded[F#] sign.
When the cl[Am]ock strikes e[E]ight
And you're [Am]snuggled up in [E]bed
He'll be [Bm]at the garden [F#]gate
Filling [Bm]underwear with [F#]dread.
[G]Nice man [Am]george new[Bm]sagent on the [Am]corner
[G]He was close[Am]d today m[Bm]aybe gone to m[Am]ow the lawn
[C]I had to go further d[Dm]own the road to [Em]get me curre[Dm]nt bun
[C]Hello - isn[Dm]'t that george o[Em]n page o[Dm]ne ?
[G]No it couldn'[Am]t be but y[Bm]es it is[Am]
[G]Difficult to[Am] see from [Bm]these photofit[Am]s.
[Am]But they are after [E]him
Of [Am]that you can be [E]sure
They've c[Bm]alled him on the [F#]phone
They've[Bm] knocked on his d[F#]oor.
A-but [Am]he's gone a[E]way
Gone to [Am]stay with some ma[E]tes
[Bm]He got the papers[F#] early
And [Bm]saw his own [F#]face.
