Intro:

    C            G7              C6    C#dim
I'm leaning on a lamp; maybe you think,
         G
I look a tramp,
           C         C6       D7       G7      C
Or you may think I'm hanging 'round to steal a car.

Ebdim  Dm7  G7

    C             G7                C6     C#dim
But no, I'm not a crook, and if you think,
              G7
That's what I look;
              G                Am      D7      G7   Dm7  G7
I'll tell you why I'm here and what my motives are.

*(Tempo Change)*

Verse 1:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
At the corner of the street,
          G7                        C
In case a certain little lady comes by.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G               D7         G   G7
I hope the little lady comes by.

  C
I don't know if she'll get away,
She doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G               D7         G
I hope the little lady comes by.

Bridge 1:

        G7                    Dm7  G7
There's no other girl I would wait for,
G+   C                      E7   Am
 But this one I'd break any date for.
  D7                           Am7  D7
I won't have to ask what she's late for;
    G7                Dm7               G7
She wouldn't leave me flat; she's not a girl like that.

Chorus 1:

          C
Oh, she's absolutely wonderful,
And marvellous and beautiful,
    G7                    C7   C+
And anyone can understand why;
    F                             D7
I'm leaning on a lamp-post at the corner of the street,
          C              G7          C
In case a certain little lady passes by.

Verse 2:

    C
I'm leaning on a lamp-post,
At the corner of the street,

In case a certain little lady comes by.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,
   C   Am7
Oh my,
  G               D7
I hope the little lady goes;
G7
 Do do do dah, dah dee dee dee...

  C
I don't know if she'll get away,
She doesn't always get away,
    G7                        C
But anyhow I know that she'll try.
   Dm7  G7
Oh me,

          C              G7          C
In case a certain little lady passes by.
