DII D A/D G/D G/D D

I look all white, but my dad was black

 

DII D A/D G/D G/D D

My fine-looking suit is really made out of sack

 

 

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth

The north side of my house faced east and the east was facing south

 

Now you dare to look me in the eye

Those crocodile tears are what you cry

It's a genuine problem you won't try

To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

 

Substitute me for him

Substitute my coke for gin

Substitute you for my mum

At least I'll get my washing done
