The name of the songwriter escapes me at this time, but Roy Bailey does a lovely version of "6b go swimming", I'd love to get hold of the chords cos I'm rubbish at working them out myself!

Not in the same key, but:


A.                         E.    A.             D.         A
It always rains on Tuesdays when 6B go swimming
A.                        E.   A.    D.             E
Sky's a grey wet blanket, story of our lives
A.                      E.    A.          D.                               E.       A
You get the odd excuses - Samantha's ears and Joanna's dog
       A                      E.       A.            D.       E.    A
Are always sick on Tuesdays when 6B go swimming
A.                  E.      D.            A.                            D.       E
Dino's got no coat again, he twists and twists his plastic bag
D/A.                         E.          D.               A.                            E
Michael's burned on both his hands and James has got four videos
A.                           E.          A.       D.                E. A
Daniel finds some pink and white crochet for a baby
A.                      E.    A.             D.       E
A little piece of paradise when 6B go swimming

And at the baths the roof leaks, attendants shout and old men float
And I collect the golden things children wear instead of coats
But when the unreal blue is kicked white and the laughter hits the water
Davina's smile says it all: mega-bright, and 6B go swimming
I've two degrees and I don't know how to be as happy as they are now
I was always too shy somehow to dive in
Now on the side I sit and think, It's not a bad world just badly organised
You either swim or you learn to sink, and 6B go swimming

Free time and out and I nag them through the showers and back into their uniforms
They swing on bars and they flick their towels and gel their hair into hard spikes
I help with chains and laces while Anthony, King Rat, King Tut
Is last dressed - a little boy lost when 6B go swimming
We rally round the sweet machine, and thoughtful Trudy tests her heart-line
Tina's last in line again and she's lost 5 p
There's dog beneath the fallen leaves, my sense of humour gets chewed and blown like bubble gum
But diamonds also grow on trees when 6B go swimming
