exactly a breeze for anyone outside of the UK (not even sure I've got

'em right), and there's a little more than DAE here.


According to _Beatles Complete_ (Hal Leonard publishing, 1987 - a most

questionable source):



(The Beatles)

D/E A E (x 2)


Well, you should see Polythene Pam


She's so good looking but she looks like a man


Well, you should see her in drag, dressed in her polythene bag


Yes, you should see Polythene Pam.


Yeah, yeah, yeah


D/E A E (x 2)


Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt

She's killer diller when she's dressed to the hilt

She's the kind of a girl that makes the _News of the World_

Yes, you could say she was attractively built.

Yeah, yeah, yeah


D/E A E (x2)

D A E (x 9?)


[Geez, while I'm at it, here's She Came in through the Bathroom Window.

Same source:] ltrics corrected by



She came in through the bathroom window

A F#m D

protected by a silver spoon

A F#m D

But now she sucks her thumb and wonders

D7 A

by the banks of her own lagoon


(A) Dm

Didn't anybody tell her?

A Dm

Didn't anybody see?

G7 C

Sunday's on the phone to Monday

G7 C (go to 2/4 for the C)

Tuesday's on the phone to me


She said she'd always been a dancer

Worked in fifteen clubs a day

And though I thought I knew the answer

Well, I knew but I could not say


So I quit the police department

and got myself a steady job

And though she tried her best to help me

she could steal but she could not rob




[Hope this isn't too far wrong]
