   C                     D
I put on my raincoat to make it rain

     Em                          D
and sure enough the skies opened up again

    C                  D
I dreamed of you as I walked to the shops,

          Bm                         Em
you were dancing with the wallies on Top of the Pops

C    C/B    D
once in a while

   C      C/B      D
Gennady Gerasimov drops his smile

     C                    D
and you can see that his aim's

       Bm                  Em
a portfolio pregnant with gains

      C   C/B     D
he's been up all night

                C  C/B  Am  G
moving the goalposts

        Bm
like a jackdaw with a fiery brand,

 Em
spread the news all over this land

Am
robin hood and his merry men

     D
are never never never coming back again

   C                  D
I don't believe that love should be pain

so would  you please rub my back again

    C                       D

For the picking in the verses, use slow arpeggios, emphasising the bass
notes. In the verses, pick all the "C C/B..." runs like the ones in the
intro.
