C


[Verse 1]
                                 G
Once there was a waitress at the Prince George Hotel
                                C
Her mistress was a lady and her master was a swell
                                    G
They knew she was a simple girl and lately from the farm
                                     C
So they kept a careful eye on her to keep her safe from harm


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 2]
                                G
The Forty Second Fusiliers came marching into town
                                   C
And with them came a compliment of rapists of renown
                                G
They made many a mistress and a wife before the bell
                                          C
But they never made the waitress from the Prince George Hotel


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 3]
                                     G
One day there came a sailor, just an ordinary bloke
                                  C
A-buldging at the trousers with a heart of solid oak
                           G
At sea without a woman for seven years or more
                                   C
There was no need to ask what he's a-looking for


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 4]
                                  G
He asked her for a candlestick to light his way to bed
                                  C
He asked her for a pillow just to rest his weary head
                              G
And speaking to her gently as if he meant no harm
                                  C
He asked her if she'd come to bed just to keep him warm


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 5]
                                   G
He lifted up the blanket and for a moment he did lie
                                     C
He was on her, he was in her, in the twinkling of an eye
                                    G
He was out again, and in again, and ploughing up a storm
                                       C
But the only words she said to him, "I hope you're keeping warm."


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 6]
                              G
Then early in the morning the sailor lad arose
                                          C
Saying, "Here's a two pound note, for the damage I have done,
                        G
If you have a daughter, bounce her on your knee,
                            C
If you have a son, send the blighter out to sea!"


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


[Verse 7]
                                G
Now she sits beside the dock, a baby on her knee
                        C
Waiting for the ships a-coming home from sea
                              G
Waiting for the jolly tars in navy uniforms
                                     C
And all she wants to do, my boys, is keep the navy warm


[Chorus]
            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do


            G                     C
Singing the bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue
G                                  C
Let him climb the rigging like his daddy used to do
