Laughs and jokes
      C          F
And drinks and smokes
     C                       F
And no lights on the stairs
         Am
We were young, so young
    C             F
And always broke
      G           Am    F
Not that we ever cared
      C    G      C
Not that we ever cared


           G            F
Well, the holes in the walls
      C          G
Were such a lot
            F           C
Welcome to London town
                 G        F
But when youre new to it all
          C
And you think youre hot
             G          F              C
Youre not planning on hanging around
 C                        F
People would go on their different ways
   C                    Am   F
I left to start a band
   G           F         C          G
A note came through the letter box
          F        C
In your childlike hand


     Am
Oh, laughs and jokes
      C          F
And drinks and smokes
     C                 F
And no lights on the stairs
         Am
We were young, so young
    C        F
And always broke
      G           Am    F
Not that we ever cared
      C    G      C
Not that we ever cared


     G     F        C
One day I rode to where you were
     G        F         C
The doorbell jangled a note
      G            F
They buzzed me in
    C
I climbed the stairs
       G         F            C
In my boots and leather coat
           C
Theres an old brass
               F
Standing there at the top
    C                 Am   F
Without her witchs broom
   G       F              C
It almost seemed like a knocking shop
          G         F             C
When the girls came out of their rooms


         G           F
And they all stood around
      C
And stared at me
      G          F    C     G
Two brunettes and a blonde
         F            C
Then the old brass shrugged and said
    G              F       C    C
We dont know where shes gone
                  F
Later on I picked up the ball
       C                 Am   F
And I took off down the line
      G        F       C
I suppose by then Id realised
       G      F            C
Youd run into hard times


     Am
Oh, laughs and jokes
      C          F
And drinks and smokes
     C                 F
And no lights on the stairs
         Am
We were young, so young
    C        F
And always broke
      G           Am    F
Not that we ever cared
      C/G  G      C
Not that we ever cared
