When I'm Cleaning Windows-1936C
  Regal Zonophone MR2199 Formby/Gifford/Cliffe
 
I go window cleaning to earn an honest bob.
For a nosey parker it's an interesting job

F                   F7
Now it's a job that just suits me,

Bb               G7  
A window cleaner you will be.

   F                  D7 
If you could see what I can see

Db7               F 
When I'm cleaning windows.

[F] The honeymooning [F7] couples too,
[Bb] You should see them [G7] bill and coo.
You'd [F] be surprised at [D7] things they do
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows.

[A7] In my profession I work hard, [D7] but I'll never stop.
[G7] I'll climb this blinking ladder [C] 'til I get right to the [C7] top.

[F] The blushing bride she [F7] looks divine,
The [Bb] bridegroom he is [G7] doing fine
I'd [F] rather have his [D7] job than mine
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows.

[F] The chambermaid sweet [F7] names I call,
It's a [Bb] wonder [G7] I don't fall.
My [F]minds not on my [D7] work at all
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/g/george-formby/226457.html ]
[F] I know a fellow [F7] such a swell,
He has a [Bb] thirst it's [G7] plain to tell.
I've [F] seen him drink his [D7] bath as well
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows

[A7] In my profession I work hard, [D7] but I'll never stop.
[G7] I'll climb this blinking ladder [C] 'til I get right to the [C7] top.

[F] Pyjamas lying [F7] side by side
[Bb] ladies nighties [G7]I have spied.
I've [F] often seen what [D7] goes inside,
[Db7] when I'm cleaning [F] windows.

[F] There's a famous [F7] talkie queen,
[Bb] looks a flapper [G7] on the screen.
She's [F] more like eighty [D7 ]than eighteen
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows.

[F] She pulls her hair all [F7] down behind,
Then [Bb] pulls down her, [G7] never mind
After [F] that pulls [D7] down the blind
[Db7] When I'm cleaning [F] windows.

[A7] In my profession I work hard, [D7] but I'll never stop.
[G7] I'll climb this blinking ladder [C]'til I get right to the [C7] top.

[F]At eight o'clock a [F7] girl she wakes,
[Bb] At five past eight a [G7] bath she takes.
