Dm Dm/A C/G C/E

Once upon a time, there lived an old miser man

Dm F G Em

By the name of Silas Stingy

Dm Am G C

He carried all his money in a little black box,

Dm Bb C Am

Which was heavy as a rock with a big padlock

Bb G Am F

All the little kids would shout when Silas was about

 

[chorus]

Em F Gm Am

Money money money bags, money money money bags

Dm (Dm) C (Bb) Am F Bb (Bb) Am (G) Dm/F Dm

There goes mingy Stingy, there goes mingy Stin-gy

 

Em F Gm Am

Money money money bags, money money money bags

Dm (Dm) C (Bb) Am F Bb (Bb) Am (G) F/A Dm/F

There goes mingy Stingy, there goes mingy Stin-gy

 

Silas didn't eat, which was just as well

He would starve himself for a penny

He wore old clothes and he never washed

'Cause soap cost a lot

And the dirt kept him hot

All the little kids would shout

When Silas was about

 

[repeat chorus]

 

D5 D5 C#5 D5 D5 C#5 D5 D5C#5 D5 D5 C#5

In the back of his head was a voice that said,

G5 F#5 F5 E5 Eb5 D5 Bb5

"Someone will steal it all

D5 D5 C#5 D5 D5 C#5 D5 D5 C#5 D5 D5 C#5

He'll be lying in the gutter with an empty box,

G5 F#5 F5 E5 Eb5 D5 C5

The thieves will be having a ball"

 

[repeat chorus]

 

Dm

 

Dm A Bb F

He bought a safe to put the box in and a house to put the safe in

Gm Dm Am

And a watchdog on a chain to make quite sure

Bb F Gm Dm

And his face was very funny when he counted up his money

Bb Am

And he realized he hadn't any more

 

[repeat chorus; final repeat:]

 

Bb (Bb) Am (G) A D

There goes mingy Stingy
