   |Am                          |        Bm
The first time we met you were a kennel maid
   |Am                    |  Am7+4 Am   G
You gave me a tip I got me fore-   cast paid
        |Am                    |             Bm
You were holding a greyhound in trap number one
                                  [2/4]     [4/4]
    |Am                           |Bm Am Am7|G   |
Your white coat was shining in the afternoon sun

         |Em    |D
Now we're both together
     |Em                |D
We're never gonna break apart, no no
              |C            D      |Am
'Cause we're a happy couple you and me
      |C            D     |Am
With a greyhound at either knee

[spoken]
I'll have ten shillings to win on Camera Flash, young man.
What dog's that? 
It's a deuce, look at it.

         |G       D/F# |Em   C          |D   Dsus4  |D
There was nothing in my life bigger than beer
There was nothing in my life bigger than beer

        |Em         |D
'Ceptin' you, little darling
        |Em         |D
'Ceptin' you, little darling
       |C            D      |Am
We're a happy couple you and me
      |C            D     |Am
With a greyhound at either knee

We go to the dog track on Saturday nights
We put all our money on a dog that we liked
A kiss and a cuddle, and hot meat pie
Two dollar tickets and a starry sky

There was nothing in my life bigger than beer
There was nothing in my life bigger than beer
'Ceptin' you, little darling
'Ceptin' you, little darling
We're a happy couple you and me
With a baby on either knee

[spoken]
Girl, where's me wage packet; oh, yes, here it is,
Ah, I'll put twenty-five knicker, please, on Gallop Printer
Oh, I hope the wife don't find out.
Yes, it's sure to win, isn't it?
Yes, I know, it's a good dog; I saw it run at White City,
Just last week, broke the record, Gallop Printer.
Nice dog, yes; lovely form, lovely buttocks.
