[B] [A] [G] [F#]  
[B]There was a [A]boy whose [G]name was [F#]Jim
[B]His friends they were v[A]ery [G]good to [F#]him
[B]They gave him t[A]ea and [G]cakes and [F#]jam
[B]And slices [A]of de[G]licious[F#] ham
[G]Oh [A]mother, [G]tell me [E]more.
[F#]Why'd ya have to leave me there
[F#]Hanging in my infant air
[F#]You only have to read the lines
[F#]of scribbly black and ev'rything
[B]The Chief De[A]fect of [G]Henry [F#]King
[B]Chewing l[A]ittle [G]bits of [F#]string
[B]At last he s[A]wallowed, [G]some which [F#]tied
[B]Itself in [A]ugly [G]knots [F#]inside
[G]Wondering and [A]dreaming
[G]the words have different [E]meanings
[D]Yes [A]they [E]did
F# for solo
[F#]When finding she was left alone
[F#]When tiptoe gives the telephone
[B]Nine Nine Nine
[F#]Some got the immediate aid
[F#]Of London's Noble Choir [E]Brigad[G]e
[B]For all the [A]time spent [G]in that [F#]room
[B]The doll's house [A]darkness [G]old [F#]perfume
[B]And fairy s[A]tories [G]held me [F#]high
[B]On clouds of [A]sunlight [G]floating [F#]by
[G]Oh [A]mother, [G]tell me [E]more.
[D]Tell [A]Me [E]More....
E until end
