Strip Cartoon

Capo 4th frest

E  A  G  C  D

C               D             G                    C
Fish and chips, sandpaper lips and a rainy pavement.
F           C                 D            G
Soho lights, another night --- thinking of you.
C          D             G            C
Black cat, sat on a wall, winks at me darkly.
F                   C           D             G
Suggesting ways and means that I might win a smile ---
        C             D             G             C
as you leave the place where you work until 12.30
           F         C         D              G
and the policemen nods as you pass along his beat.
C           D                         G                    C
Sweaty feet, troubled brow -- we're all in the same game, lady.
F                  C                   D                        G
Life's no bowl of cherries --- it's a black and white strip cartoon.

D             Em        G                        A
I've been warned that you and your friends are crazy
G                       D              E            A
as from your hearts you bare your parts to the gentlemen,

      C                 D
who, while they drool, trying to keep cool,
G                       C
spill their Scotch and water.
        F             C                  D              G
But I'm not that way, I must say --- I'd much prefer to see
    C             D                   G        C
you in your texturised rubber rainwear around 12.30.
F             C                    D                     G
Come and play shades of grey in my black and white strip cartoon.

D           Em      G         D
Strip cartoon is all I'm after.
G           D      E          A
Strip cartoon is all I crave ---

C          D         G        C
so come to my place around 12.30
            F       C
`cos I'm a leading politician
      D     G
at a dangerous age.

D        E     G     D     G     E     A  X 2
Tu-dudu...

D           Em      G         D
Strip cartoon is all I'm after.
G           D      E          A
Strip cartoon is all I crave ---

C          D         G        C
so come to my place around 12.30
            F       C
`cos I'm a leading politician
      D          G   C   Am   F   G     C
at a dangerous age.
