Strophe 1: 
Gm7  
I wouldn't be glad wouldn't be sad-I wouldn't be good if I knew what I could 
Am D                            - Am D 
And I hate to go                - But I must you know 
Gm7 
Duty calls -  -Niagara Falls - See it go down - As it falls on the ground 
Am D                    Am                            A#

                                G#m7 
Something of which I know nothing about 
                Gm              D               Gm              D 
Namely that which I will tell you        - (That which I will tell you) 

Strophe 2: 
Gm7 
I'm going to school breaking a rule -I'm going around in a pityful frown 
Am D                            - Am D 
'Coz I didn't pass (came) - Bottom of the class (Oh! what a shame) 
Gm7 
Teacher was mad -So was me dad -Took off his belt -And without any help 
Am D                    Am                            A#         
Really hit me hard - Where I'd stuck a card - Thick I may be but a fool I am certainly not - 
                                G#m7 
Always remember the golden rule 
                Gm              D               Gm              D 
When in no doubt get a car out - And while you're there how about... 

Bridge: 
Fm7 
Fetching me one of those pneumatic drills 
                        A#m 
Boy! I really love the sound that they make 
                Fm7                                     E

A#  
Many's the time - I have wondered about what it is 
                                G#m7 
I want you all to repeat after me 
                Gm              D               Gm              D 
Something I know you know I know - (Something I know you know I know)

I wouldn't behold wouldn't be cold - I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my 
Am D                            - Am D 
Dear old mum and dad - And the fun they had 
Gm7 Gm7 Gm7 Gm7 
Early one night - Dad put out the light - Got hold of me mum - Said he wanted a son 
Am D                            - Am  
And as you can see - The result was me 
A# 
Somebody told me once money does not grow on trees 
                                G#m7

                Gm              D               Gm              D 
Apples oranges and lemons - Not forgetting melons
