'Leaning on a Lampost'

(Intro)                                                                      

      C                 G7                           C6    C#dim
I'm leaning on a lamp; maybe you think,
            G
I look a tramp,
                    C           C6          D7                      G7       
Or you may think I'm hanging round to steal a car.

       C                 G7                        C6     C#dim
But no, I'm not a crook, and if you think,
                     G
That's what I look;
                 C         Am          D7                        G7     
Ill tell you why I'm here and what my motives are.
(Chorus 1a)                                                                      (Chorus 1b)
C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
At the corner of the street,
                G7                                    C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
      G7
Oh me,
      C   
Oh my,
  G                     D7                G   D7   G
I hope the little lady comes by.
C
I don't know if she'll get away,
She doesn't always get away,
       G7                                    C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
      G7
Oh me,
      C
Oh my,
  G                    D7                G   D7   G
I hope the little lady comes by.

 

(Verse)                                                                               (Chorus 2)

            G7               
There's no other girl I would wait for,
       C                    
 But this one I'd break any date for.
  D7                          
I wont have to ask what she's late for;
        G7                                                    G7             
She wouldn't leave me flat; she's not a girl like that.
    C
Oh, she's absolutely wonderful,
And marvellous and beautiful,
    G7                                       C7
   
And anyone can understand why;
      F                                                 D7
I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
                 C                 G7                C
In case a certain little lady passes by.

Then   (Chorus 1a) followed by (Chorus 2)
