 Look, he's crawling up my wall
|C     C   G   G  Bb Bb F  F |G        |
 Black and hairy, ve-ry small

 Now he's up a-bove my head
|C   C   G  G Bb Bb  F  F  |G        |
 Hanging by a little thread

 Boris  the spider        Boris  the spider

Now he's dropped on to the floor
Heading for the bedroom door
Maybe he's as scared as me
Where's he gone now, I can't see

[repeat chorus]
Boris the spider

There he is wrapped in a ball
Doesn't seem to move at all
Perhaps he's dead, I'll just make sure
Pick this book up off the floor

Boris the spider

Creepy, crawly
Creepy, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly
Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

He's come to a sticky end (creepy, crawly)
Don't think he will ever mend (creepy, crawly)
Never more will he crawl 'round (creepy, crawly)
He's embedded in the ground (creepy, crawly)

Boris the spider
