 Noel Coward was a charmer,
C     D7             G      E7  A7  D7

He must have been a pencil squeezer.
   G                  D7    C        D7         G
He didn't do the Mona Lisa; that was an Italian geezer.

 Einstein can't be classed as witless;

 He claimed atoms were the littlest.
G                      D7
 When you did a bit of splittemness,
C         D7        G
 Frighten everybody sh*tless.

Let's hope that there's lots more to come.
