Here's what I use. I believe I got these from "Rise Up Singing" but they seem to work well.

                
           Dm               C               Bb               A7
There are pirates in their fetid galleons, daggers in their skivvies
        Dm             C            Bb             A7
With infected tattooed fingers on a blunderbuss or two
          Gm             Dm            C                Dm
Signs of scurvy in their eyes and only mermaids on their minds
                                                  Gm       A7
It's from them I would expect to hear the F-word, not from you

 D       A       D      A          D      A       D      A
We sit down to have a chat, it's F-word this and F-word that
     G       A       D         A      D            A
I can't control how you young people talk to one another
       D       A    D       A       D      A         D
But I don't wanna hear you use that F-word with your mother

    Monospaced font added. It's still not perfect, but I hope it helps. -Joe Offer-

Of course, it changed the font and so all of the chords are now early on each line. I assume you can work out where the changes are supposed to come. The only "odd" one is the last line of the verse, where the Gm is on "not".

First thread drift of the day - a local story.
A sweet little five-tear-old girl lived with her family next to a building site in Dublin and every day she would stand by the fence and watch the men at work.
One day they invited her in, gave her a chair to sit on, a set of pink overalls, a pink hard-hat and a little pink lunchbox.
At the end of the week they gave her a little pink envelope with a few coins for her wages, which she took home and gave to her mother.
Her mother thanked her and said, "Will you be working there next week dear?"
She replied, "That depends on whether those F****** ***** from Roadstone deliver the building blocks".
Sorry about that - breakfast calls.

Jim C.: You left off the end of the joke - Where mom says "Young lady, for such terrible language, you must be punished. Get the switch!"

And the little girl says, "F*** that! That's an electrician's job!"

I've seen the two Berrymans in concert, and I enjoy their music. This song, the F-Word, is one of my favorites, and for two reasons.

The first reason is that it shows off the incredible vocabulary of English, making me stop and think about where all these words came from:

tattoo
blunderbuss
fetid
skivvies
walkie-talky
Gucci bandalieros

The second reason is that I enjoy loading the emotion into the last verse

With their groupies and addictions and their
BROKEN-HEARTED PARENTS...

and you know that the mother herself is the broken-parent, and the musician is her own kid (who's not that bad really. One of us, probably.)

Midchuck:
"Young lady, for such terrible language, you must be punished. Get the switch!"
Thank you from the heart of my bottom - made my day.
We don't use the term 'switch' here in that sense but I'm sure I'll find my way around it
