Intro:

Cmaj7  Bm7  Am7  G  D7 (x2), D+

Verse 1:

G                  D7
 Noel Coward was a charmer,
C     D7             G      E7  A7  D7
 As a writer, he was drama.
G                      D7
 Velvet jackets and py-jamas,
    C      D7              G
The gay di-vorce and other dramas.

Chorus 1:

Ab7    A7
 There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D
 (Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders),
      A7                              D
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Interlude:

D  D/B  D/A  G, D+

Verse 2:

G                           D7
 Van Gough did some eyeball pleasers,
   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.

Chorus 2:

Ab7    A7
 There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D
 (Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders),
      A7                              D
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Verse 3:

G                             D7
 Einstein can't be classed as witless;
C           D7             G        E7  A7  D7
 He claimed atoms were the littlest.
G                      D7
 When you did a bit of splittemness,
C         D7        G
 Frighten everybody sh*tless.

Chorus 3:

Ab7    A7
 There ain't half been some clever bastards,

Cmaj7         Bm7             Am7
 Probably got help from their mum,
         G             D7
(Who had help from her mum).

Ab7    A7
 There ain't half been some clever bastards,

Cmaj7          Bm7
 Now that we've had some,
      Am7               G            D7
Let's hope that there's lots more to come.

Chorus 4:

Ab7    A7
 There ain't half been some clever bastards,
D
 (Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders),
      A7                              D
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Verse 4:

G            D7
 Okey-dokey!

Se-govia.

 Da-laa la-laa da-daa da-lee,
   C                D7                   G
De dump di dump, de dump-dump-diddle lum-lee.

There ain't half been some clever bastards,

There ain't half been some clever...bastards!
