G            riff1                                 Em  riff2
And here slip I --- dragging one foot in the gutter ---
D               Am          C                        D    Dsus4
in the midnight echo of the shop that sells cheap radios.

G                                            Em     D
And there sits she --- no bed, no bread, no butter ---
            Am             C                       D    Dsus4
on a double yellow line --- where she can park anytime.

G                               Em     D
Old Lady Grey; crash-barrier waltzer ---
                 Am    C              D    Dsus4
some only son's mother. Baker Street casualty.

G                                        Em     D
Oh, Mr. Policeman --- blue shirt ballet master.
                   Am         C                D    Dsus4
Feet in sticking plaster --- move the old lady on.

G                                          Em     D
Strange pas-de-deux --- his Romeo to her Juliet.
D              Am           C
Her sleeping draught, his poisoned regret.
     C             D         C        D                    G
No drunken bums allowed to sleep here in the crowded emptiness.

G                                     Em     D
Oh officer, let me send her to a cheap hotel ---
                       Am              C                    D    Dsus4
I'll pay the bill and make her well - like hell you bloody will!
C          D          C                   D                    G  Em
No do-good over kill. We must teach them to be still more independent.
