Intro:  Bm7 D A A

Verse: 
 N.C      Bm7
Punctured bicycle
      D                 A
on a hill side desolate,
                             Bm7         D
will nature make a man of me yet
            A
when this charming car 
           Bm7    D 
this charming man
     A
why pamper lifes complexity

when the leather runs smooth
                  Bm7   D
on the passengers seat

Pre-Chorus:
           A
I would go out tonight
                             Bm7   D
but I haven't got a stitch to wear
     A
this man said its gruesome
                                Bm7   D
that someone so handsome should care

Chorus:
   D      E               Gbm7
Ah!    a jumped up pantry boy
    B              D    
who never knew his place
   B      Gbm7
he said return the ring
   D               E           Gbm7   B 
he knows so much a-bout these things
   D               E           Gbm7  
he knows so much a-bout these things

Pre-Chorus:
 N.C        A
I would go out tonight
                             Bm7   D
but I haven't got a stitch to wear
     A  
this man said its gruesome
                                  Bm7   D
that someone so handsome should care
       A                       Bm7      D
La la la la la la la this charming man
     A                         Bm7      D
La la la la la la la this charming man

Chorus:
  D      E               Gbm7
Ah!    a jumped up pantry boy
    B              D    
who never knew his place
   B      Gbm7
he said return the ring
   D               E           Gbm7   B 
he knows so much a-bout these things
   D               E           Gbm7  
he knows so much a-bout these things
   D         E     Gbm7  B             D      B    Gbm7
he knows so much a-bout these    things

  1. i just skip the e. i don’t mind with or without but it’s slightly easier to play

  2. I like to add a little twist to most songs I play, and with this song I personally prefer to transpose it +1, it’s easier and sounds slightly unique from the original.

    However, my mum (a diehard Smiths fan) prefers the original, but to each their own

  3. kazoo kid

    i rearranged the chords a little bit and stuck to the basic a, d, gbm, and e too bad none of my friends know this song

  4. -2 transposed is so much easier!
