G  |  C  |  G  |  C  | (etc.)

           G
Mornington Crescent
             C
I think of you
            G
Rain in the southeast
             C
Men feeling blue
             G
Men in their bowlers
                 C
Kids with their spats
              G
Ladies with chauffeurs
             Em
Dogs wearing hats and jackets
Em(addmaj7)
Rich apartments
Em7
Old punk posters
A7
Tartan garments
            C           G
Some of the exquisite array
           C              G
I love the camp as camp parade
         Am          Bm                 D    D7
The possibilities suggest themselves to me...

           G
Mornington Crescent
                C
The sun in the east
           G
I've got a job on
             C
For a Senegalese
           G
Rich arbitrator
            C
In African law
                 G
To paint his apartment
               Em
Strip down the walls
             Em(addmaj7)
Came down between us lately
Em7                A7
Lust and want and need just caved in
       C
'Is it wise?'
              G
The answer's no
         C                 G
It never is but since you ask
             Am              Bm             D        F#m
We pause thoughtfully, for twenty seconds reprieve
                        F        D
Then it's off with the briefs

Solo:
-Same as the first verse, but don't play the D7 chord at the end


           G
Mornington Crescent
          C
Sin is my game
              G
We'll all be lined up
            C
Irrelevant fame
               G
Next to the broker
                  C
the nurse and the drunk
          G
I was a joker
            Em
the wannabe punk that got lucky
Em(addmaj7)
Had a good time
Em7
Life became fruitless
  A7        C                G
Egotistic swine to all your friends
         C             G
All the ladies and the men
         Am          Bm                  D      Gm
The possibilities suggest themselves to me
                   F      C    F    Cmaj7
We're a little too free...
