Fings Ain't Wot They Used To Be


They've [C] changed our [G] local Palais into [C] a [G] bowlin' alley
and [C] fings ain't [F] what they used to [C] be [F] [G]

There's [C] teds with [G] drainpipe trousers and [C] debs in [G] coffee houses
and [C] fings ain't [F] what they used to [C] be [F] [G]

There used to be [F] trams not very quick got ya from place to place
But now there's just [Fm] jams half a mile thick
[C] stay in the human [G] race - I'm walkin'

They [C] stuck [G] parkin' meters out [C] side our doors to greet us
now [C] fings ain't [F] what they [G] used to [C] be

[C] Cor, monkeys [G] flyin' 'round the moon
[C] we'll be [G] up there with 'em soon
[C] fings ain't [F] what they [G] used to [C] be [F] [G]

[C] Once our [G] beer was frothy but [C] now it's [G] frothy coffee
well, [C] fings ain't [F] what they used to [C] be [C7]

It used to be [F] fun Dad and old Mum paddlin' down Southend
But now it ain't [Fm] done never mind, chum
[C] Paris is where we [G] spend our outings

[C] Grandma [G] tries to shock us all [C] doing a [G] knees up rock 'n' roll
[C] fings ain't [F] what they [G] used to [C] be [C7]

We used to 'ave [F] stars singers who sung a dixie melody
They're buying guit [Fm] ars plinkety plonk
[C] backin' themselves with [G] three chords only

[C] Once we'd [G] dance from twelve to three [C] I've got [G] news for Elvis P
[C] fings ain't [F] what they [G] used to, [C] There's a [F] lot, we [G] used to
[C] fings ain't [F] what they [G] used to [C] be.....[G] [C]
