B  Bb  Ab, F
B  Bb  Ab

Verse 1:

F                                    Ab
 Naughty boys in nasty schools, head-masters breaking all the rules,
Bb                             B               Bb       Ab
 Having fun and playing fools, smashing up the woodwork tools.

F                             Ab
 All the teachers in the pub, passing 'round the ready-rub,
Bb                               B                    Bb     Ab
 Trying not to think of when the lunch-time bell will ring a-gain.

Chorus 1:

Bb              Bbm       F             Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?
Bb               Bbm         C                     B   C
 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

Bb              Bbm      F              Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.
Bb                Bbm      C                 B
 Trying different ways, to make a difference to...

Verse 2:

Bb   Ab   F                          Ab
 The head-master's had enough today, all the kids have gone away,
Bb                                      B               Bb     Ab
 Gone to fight with next-door's school; every term that is the rule.

F                              Ab
 Sits alone and bends his cane; same old backsides again,
Bb                                   B                Bb        Ab
 All the small ones tell tall tales, walking home and squashing snails.

 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?

 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

Bb              Bbm      F              Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.

 Trying different ways, to make a difference to the days.

Verse 3:

F                                Ab
 Lots of girls and lots of boys, lots of smells and lots of noise.
Bb                             B                 Bb    Ab
 Playing football in the park, kicking pushbikes after dark.

F                             Ab
 Baggy trousers, dirty shirt, pulling hair and eating dirt,
Bb                             B                       Bb      Ab
 Teacher comes to break it up; back of the 'ead with a plastic cup.

Chorus 3:

Bb              Bbm       F             Fm
 Oh what fun we had, but, did it really turn out bad?

 All I learnt at school, was how to bend not break the rules.

 Oh what fun we had, but at the time it seemed so bad.

 Trying different ways, to make a difference to the days.

 Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers.
