G Bm Em Em7
I read the news today oh boy
C C/B Am
About a lucky man who made the grade
G Bm Em Em7
And though the news was rather sad
C F Em Em7
Well I just had to laugh
C F Em C
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before

Em Em7 C
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look

Em Em7 C
Having read the book

C Em/F# Em/G Em/A Em Cmaj7 Em/D Em
I'd love to turn you on

E Dsus2
Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
E Dsus2
Found my coat and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

C G D A E C G D A Em C

I heard the news today oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn you on
