Cannibal chiefs chew Camembert cheese 

                         D

                               G 
'cause he thinks fur makes him freaky 

C                                 G

G
I got up at eight, it was half past two 

                         D7
I said to myself, "Well, how do you do?" 


I've gotta get on, so I soon got off 

                            G
Stuck a clean shirt on, and had a good cough 


Back at the boozer, a bloke I knew 

                      D7
Said he knew a secret no one knew 


He pinched some snuff, and he sniffed and sighed 

                            G  
So I pinched his snout, and he replied,

Fmaj7       Em
Here am I a sailor 

Dm            Em
Seabirds fly above me 

F   
Listen to their cry 

G                    Am
See them in the sky above me 

Fmaj7       Em
Here am I a sailor 

Dm            Em
Fishes swim below me 

F
Even while I sleep 

G                         Am
Growing in the deep below me 



(Instr:  Am)


  G
I rode a long worm to the end of the line 

                        D7
I asked Tin Man if he'd tell me the time 


He took off his hat, and he took off his head 

                       G
Took off Max Bygraves, here's what he said, 


"You take first right and second left." 

                           D7
The man in the moon says, "How's your chest?" 


The man in the sun says, "Have another one!" 

                           G  
So we're all tanked up and singing along


G
Cannibal chiefs chew camembert cheese 

                         D 
'cause chewing keeps 'em cheeky 


Big Fat Fred fixes fur to his head 

                               G   
'cause he thinks fur makes him freaky
