Intro:
    C              G
I'm leaning on the lamp,
          F              C
Maybe you think I look a tramp.
   C                   F        G       C  G   
Or maybe you think I'm round to steal a car.
    C             G
But no, I'm not a crook,
           F                   C
And if you think that's what I look,
     C                F       G       C
I'll tell you why and what my motives are.

Verse:
    C                               Am
I'm leaning on the lamppost at the corner of the street 
          G                         C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   G      C   Am        G              D          G
Oh me, oh my, in case a certain little lady comes by.

Chorus:
          C
Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous,
      Am                 
She's fabulous, she's beautiful.
    G                     C        G       C      F
And anyone can understand why..I'm leaning on the lamppost
C      F      E      F                D
at the corner of the street in case a certain 
       G          C
little lady comes by.

Verse:
    C                               Am
She doesn't always get her way, she cannot always get her way.
    G                         C
But anyway I know that she'll try.
   G      C   Am G                D          G
Oh me, oh my, I  hope that little lady comes by.

Verse:
      G
She's not the kind of girl to be late for.
    C                      Am
But this one I'd break any date for.
  D                            D7
I won't have to ask what she's late for.
      G                    G7          G
She'd never leave me flat..she's not a girl like that.

Chorus:
          C
Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous,
      Am                 
She's fabulous, she's beautiful.
    G                     C        G       C      F
And anyone can understand why..I'm leaning on the lamppost
C      F      E      F                D
at the corner of the street in case a certain 
       G          C
little lady comes by.

Verse:
    C                               Am
I'm leaning on the lamppost at the corner of the street 
          G                         C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   G      C   Am        G              D          G
Oh me, oh my, in case a certain little lady comes by.

Chorus:
          C
Oh, she's wonderful, she's marvelous,
      Am                 
She's fabulous, she's beautiful.
    G                     C        G       C      F
And anyone can understand why..I'm leaning on the lamppost
C      F      E      F                D
at the corner of the street in case a certain 
       G          C
little lady comes by.

Thank you so much for putting this out there. I’ve been playing guitar for a while now but never thought to pick up the ukulele. Bought one for my grandkids to play with but now I’m going to give it a go. Thanks again. Frank.

I believe the first line of the second verse is incorrect. You write,

“She doesn’t always get her way, she cannot always get her way.”

I think this should be,

“She doesn’t always get away, she cannot always get away.”

My father was a huge George Formby fan, he had every conceivable LP (back in the days of vinyl), and all the George Formby films on VHS – I am talking about the 70’s and 80’s! I loved watching the films with him and singing along with my dad in the car to the cassette tapes of George.
He would be so thrilled that, at the age of 47, I have started playing the Uke.
Thanks to all of those who have contributed to this excellent site and helped me learn to play.

There is an old fellow that has just bought a ukulele, and has been trying to learn this tune for some time, I want to get him the Lyrics and tabs, he does not have a computer, and is not on the W.W.W. Can anyone help.
