       C       (b)    Am       D             G      
Now, 'ere's a little story. To tell it is a must
C          (b)   Am       D                G
About an unsung hero that moves away your dust.
      Am            (c)      Am            (c)
Some people earn a fortune, others make a mint.
Am                (c)          D                   C
My old man don't earn much, in fact, he's flippin' skint.

He wears gor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat.
He looks a proper 'nana in 'is great big hobnailed boots
