Intro:

    C            G7
I'm leaning on a lamp,
          C6    C#dim
Maybe you think,
         G
I look a tramp,
           C,
Or you may think,
    C6       D7
I'm hanging 'round,
   G7      C
To steal a car.

Ebdim  Dm7  G7

    C            G7
But no I'm not a crook,
           C6     C#dim
And if you think,
              G7
That's what I look,
              G
I'll tell you why I'm here,
    Am      D7      G7   Dm7  G7
And what my motives are.

*(Tempo Change)*

Verse 1:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
At the corner of the street,
          G7
In case a certain,
                  C
Little lady comes by.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G
I hope the little,
D7          G   G7
 Lady comes by.

  C
I don't know if she'll get away,
She doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G
I hope the little,
D7          G
 Lady comes by.

Bridge 1:

        G7
There's no other girl,
        Dm7  G7
I would wait for,
G+   C
 But this one,
              E7   Am
I'd break any date for,
  D7
I won't have to ask,
           Am7  D7
What she's late for,
    G7                Dm7
She wouldn't leave me flat,
            G7
She's not a girl like that.

Chorus 1:

          C
Oh, she's absolutely wonderful,
And marvellous and beautiful,
    G7
And anyone can,
           C7  C+
Understand why,
    F
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
       D7
At the corner of the street,
          C
In case a certain,
       G7          C
Little lady passes by.

(Tempo Change)

Verse 2:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
At the corner of the street,
          G7
In case a certain,
                  C
Little lady comes by.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G
I hope the little,
D7
 Lady goes:
G7
 Do do do dah,
Dah dee dee dee...
