Leaning on a Lamp Post[C] - George Formby
[C] I'm leaning on a [G7] lamp,
maybe you [C6] think, I [C#dim] look a [G7] tramp,
[G7] Or you may [C] think I'm hanging [D7-alt] 'round to steal a car.
[G7] But [C] no I'm not a [G7] crook,
And if you [C6] think, [C#dim] that's what I [G7] look,
[G7] I'll tell you [C] why I'm here, and [D7] what my motives are. [Dm7] [G7]
[C] I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
[C] In case a [G7] certain little lady comes [C] by.
Oh [G7] me, oh [C] my, I [G7] hope the little [D7] lady comes by. [G]
[C] I don't know if she'll get away, She doesn't always get away,
[C] But [G7] anyhow I know that she'll [C] try.
Oh [G7] me, oh [C] my, I [G7] hope the little [D7] lady comes by, [G]
[G7] There's no other girl I would wait for,
But [C] this one I'd break any date for,
I [D7] won't have to ask what she's late for,
[D7-alt] She [Dm6] wouldn't have to leave me flat, She's not a [G7] girl like that.
[G7] Oh, she's [C] absolutely wonderful, and marvellous and beautiful.
[C] And [G7] anyone can understand [C7] why,
I'm [F] leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street
[F] In case a [C] certain little [G7] lady passes [C]by.
