When I'm Cleaning Windows

George Formby

4:4 Key: G

Now [G] I go cleaning windows to [A7] earn an honest bob
[D] For a nosey parker it's an interesting [G] job
[G] Now it's a job that [G7] just suits me
A [C] window cleaner [A7] you will be
If [G] you could see what [E7] I can see
[Gdim]When I'm cleaning [G] windows

[G]The honeymooning [G7] couples too
[C] you should see them [A7] bill and coo
You'd [G] be surprised at [E7] things they do
[Gdim] When I'm cleaning [G] windows

In [B7] my profession I work hard
[E7]But I'll never stop
I'll [A7] climb this blinking ladder
'til I [D] get right to the [D7] top

The [G] blushing bride she [G7] looks divine
The [C] bridegroom he is [A7] doing fine
I'd [G] rather have his [E7] job than mine
[Gdim]When I'm cleaning [G] windows

[G] The chambermaid sweet [G7] names I call
[C] it's a wonder [A7] I don't fall
My [G] mindís not on my [E7] work at all
[Gdim] when I'm cleaning [G] windows

[G] I know a fellow [G7] such a swell
He [C] has athirst it's [A7] plain to tell
I've [G] seen him drink his [E7] bath as well
[Gdim] when I'm cleaning [G] windows

In [B7] my profession I work hard
[E7] But I'll never stop
I'll [A7] climb this blinking ladder
'til I [D] get right to the [D7] top

Py[G]jamas lying [G7] side by side
[C]Ladies nighties [A7] I have spied
I've [G] often seen what [E7] goes inside
[Gdim] when I'm cleaning [G] windows

Now [G] there's a famous [G7] talkie queen
[C]Looks a flapper [A7] on the screen
She's [G] more like eighty [E7] than eighteen
[Gdim] When I'm cleaning [G] windows

She [G] pulls her hair all [G7] down behind
[C]Then pulls down her [A7] never mind
And [G] after that pulls [E7] down the blind
[Gdim]when I'm cleaning [G] windows

In [B7] my profession I work hard
[E7]but I'll never stop
I'll [A7] climb this blinking ladder
'til I [D] get right to the [D7] top

An [G] old maid walks a[G7]round the floor
She's [C] so fed up one [A7] day I'm sure
She'll [G] drag me in and [E7] lock the door
[Gdim]when I'm cleaning [G] windows
[G] [G7] [C] [A7] [G] [E7] [Gdim] [G]

[Gdim] when I'm cleaning [G] windows
