How To Play

INTRO
C G/B Am G F Em Dm G
 
 
VERSE 1
         C               F
I am the bringer of your wishes
     Am           Dm/F
Your saviour from doing work
    C              F
The washer of your dishes
    Am                    Dm/F
And you'll still get your midday perk
 C                F
Estate agent your mansion
Am     Dm/F
   And pot of gold
C            F
All the home comforts
  Am                  Dm/F
Before you're getting tired and old
 
 
BRIDGE
Bm           G
    One more try
       Bm              G
Try to get what you've never had
C#m           A
    Five more bob
        C#m              A
For the whole world that can't be bad
C
    We can't all win
G
    Look it's happening
    G
The future's looking not so bleak
 
 
CHORUS
  F                Am          F  Am
A thousand winners every week
  F                Am          F  Am G/B
A thousand winners every week
 
 
VERSE 2
   C                F
So when you hear me coming
 Am             Dm/F
Along halls and up the stairs (E.R.N.I.E.)
C              F
In the back of teapots
Am               Dm/F
In the cupboard, under chairs (E.R.N.I.E.)
C                 F
  Forget all your wives tales
    Am           Dm/F
Of forecasts and dividends (E.R.N.I.E.)
C                         F
  When E.R.N.I.E. feels vibrations
     Am          Dm/F
Only pays out to trusted friends

VERSE 3
          D           G
Keep your hand on the bottle
         Bm          Em/G
And your eyes glued upon the set (E.R.N.I.E.)
         D           G
When the score cards come up
         Bm          Em/G
Could be you for the big one next (E.R.N.I.E.)
         D           G
Publicity, no thank you
         Bm          Em/G
On the front page of the Currant Bun (E.R.N.I.E.)
D           G
  They think you stink
           Bm            Em/G
But in the pub you'll be number one

For the whole world that can't be bad

    We can't all win
A
    Look it's happening
    A
The future's looking not so bleak
 
 
CHORUS
