Why Don't Women Like Me-1933C
  Decca F3524 Cotterill/Bennett

INTRO
G A7 D7 G D7 G 

      G              E7         A7 
Now I know Im  not handsome, no good looks or wealth 
        D7                                G 
But the girls I chase say my plain face will compromise their health . 
      G                         E7       A7 
Now I know  fellows worse than me bow-legged and boss-eyed 
A7                                              D7 
Walking outwith lovely women clinging to their side. 
       G                                     A7         D7          G 
Now if women like them  like men like those,why dont women like me? 

C                   G            A7                                  D7 
Look at Empress Josephine, the most attractive women that ever was seen, 
G                       E7 A7                                   D7 
Yet Napoleon short and fat, captivates a lovely looking dame like that 
       G                                     A7         D7          G      E7 
Now if women like them  like men like those, why dont women like me? Hey, hey 
A7         D7          G 
W h y dontw om en lik e m e? 

      G                           A7 
Last night I went out walking, my intentions were to click 
        D7                                  G 
But the sights I saw whilst walking out, they nearly made me sick. 
                         E7    A7 
I must admit I saw  some girls, attractive little dears 
                              D7 
Arm in arm  with ugly men with  cauliflower ears. 
       G                                     A7         D7          G 
Now if women like them  like men like those, why dont women like me? 
C                G            A7                                           D7 
What can the attraction be, thats the thing that always starts to worry me. 
  G                        E7         A7                                        D7 
Although I havent got a bean, Ive got a lot of things that girls have never seen. 
        G                                       A7          D7            G         E7 
Now if women like them  like men like those, why dont women like me? Hey, hey 
A7          D7           G     D7 
Why dont women like me? 

        G                                    A7        D7           G 
Now if women like them  like men like those, why dont women like me? 
C                        G         A7                                     D7 
Tak e Lord Nelson w ith  one lim b,Lady W illiam  H am ilton sh e fellfor h im . 
      G                            E7        A7                                      D7 
W ith  one eye and one arm  gone w est,sh e ran lik e th e deviland sh e grabbed th e rest. 
        G                                       A7          D7            G         E7 
Now if women like them  like men like those, why dont women like me? Hey, hey  
A7         D7     G D7 G 
Why dont women like me?
