In My Little Snapshot Album-1938C
  Regal Zonophone MR2753 Harper/Haines/Parr-DaviesI See Ice
    C                       F         G7     C
Now I'm a young inventor, a chap with good ideas,
     F       G7     C          B7                G7 G7sus2 G7
I've built myself a camera, it took me years and years.
       C                        F       G7    Am
It's a wonderful invention with special x-ray tricks,
       G              Gdim   G            D                G  G7   
It can take a picture in the dark and can even see through bricks.
  E7               Am        E7                Am
I bought myself an album and filled it up with snaps,
         D               D7              G                   G7
And I've got some lovely pictures of the local girls and chaps.
 
Verse 1

    C          C6             G7sus4    G7    G7sus4       G7       C
Now I've got a picture of the girl next door, in my little snapshot album,
    C          C6           G7sus4 G7    G7sus4       G7       C
And I've never had a better snap before, in my little snapshot album.
    Dm                     Em
The night was dark and the hour was late,
        F                      C  G7  C
She was kissing her boy by the garden gate,
Dm                   E7       Am     G7                    C
Wouldn't she love to see page eight, in my little snapshot album.
 
Verse 2
    C          C6            G7sus4   G7   G7sus4       G7       C
And I've got a picture of my old granddad, in my little snapshot album.
C         C6           G7sus4   G7   G7sus4       G7       C
He's over eighty but a real bad lad, in my little snapshot album
Dm               Em
Although he's an old antique,
F                        C  G7   C
He thinks he's still the village sheik,
     Dm              E7       Am    G7                    C
I've got him dancing cheek to cheek in my little snapshot album.
 
Verse 3
    C          C6             G7sus4  G7    G7sus4       G7       C
Now I've got a picture of the vicar's wife, in my little snapshot album.
C           C6            G7sus4  G7    G7sus4       G7       C
Chasing the Curate with a carving knife in my little snapshot album.
    Dm              Em
Now what he did was all in fun
         F               C     G7     C
But it's not the kind of thing that's done,
      Dm                 E7        Am   G7                    C
I can see he pinched her hot-cross bun, in my little snapshot album.
 
Verse 4
    C          C6           G7sus4 G7    G7sus4       G7       C
And I've got a picture of a nudist camp, in my little snapshot album,
C        C6          G7sus4 G7    G7sus4       G7       C
All very jolly but a trifle damp, in my little snapshot album.
        Dm         Em
There's Uncle Dick without a care,
F                  C G7 C
Discarding all his underwear,
        Dm                    E7     Am     G7                    C
But his watch and chain still dangle there, in my little snapshot album!
