Leaning On A Lampost  George Formby



--------------------------

I'm [C]leaning on a [G7]lamp, maybe you [C6]think,[C#dim]   I look a [G]tramp,
Or you may [C]think I'm [C6]hanging '[D7]round to [G7]steal a motor-[C]car.[Ebdim]       [Dm7]     [G7]
But [C]no I'm not a [G7]crook, And if you [C6]think,[C#dim] that's what I [G7]look,
I'll tell you [G]why I'm here, And [Am]what my [D7]motives [G7]are. [Dm7]     [G7]
(Tempo Change)

Verse 1:

I'm [C]leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
In case a [G7]certain little lady comes [C]by.
Oh [Dm7]me, [G7]   oh [C]my,[Am7]
I [G]hope the little [D7]lady comes [G]by.[G7]
I [C]don't know if she'll get away, She doesn't always get away,
But [G7]anyhow I know that she'll [C]try.
Oh [Dm7]me, [G7]   oh [C]my,[Am7]
I [G]hope the little [D7]lady comes [G]by.

Bridge 1:

There's [G7]no other girl I would [Dm7]wait [G7]for, [G+]But [C]this one I'd break any [E7]date [Am]for,
I [D7]won't have to ask what she's [Am7]late [D7]for, She [G7]wouldn't have to leave me [Dm7]flat,
She's not a [G7]girl like that.

Chorus 1:

Oh, she's [C]absolutely wonderful, and marvellous and beautiful.
And [G7]anyone can understand [C7]why,[C+]
I'm [F]leaning on a lamp-post at the [D7]corner of the street
In case a [C]certain little [G7]lady passes [C]by.

(Tempo change)

Verse 2:

I'm [C]leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,

Oh [Dm7]me, [G7]   oh [C]my,[Am7]
I [G]hope the little [D7]lady goes. [G7]do do do dah dah dee dee dee.....
I [C]don't know if she'll get away, She doesn't always get away,
But [G7]anyhow I know that she'll [C]try.
Oh [Dm7]me, [G7]   oh [C]my,[Am7]
I [G]hope the little [D7]lady comes [G]by.
