Chorus

FI'm flying south for the Csummer, G7I'm gonna follow the Csun, FI'm flying south for the Csummer now the G7mating season's beCgun. In CSan Tropez I met Selina, now her figure was not very G7nice, She was so thin the cats had her out on the landing Ctwice. When she went down to the beach there, everyone C7stared at Fher, And when she wore her topless Cbathing suit, G7people kept calling her 'Csir'. Oh,

Chorus

In CLisbon I first kissed Maria, it was late on a September G7night, She was a vision of loveliness in the early morning Clight. I said, "Tell me, where have you been all my life, my Venus C7of the Fdawn?" She smiled and said, "Well, for the Cfirst twenty years I G7wasn't even Cborn." Oh,

Chorus

Big CAnnie from Brighton once ordered a steak weighing nine and a quarter G7pound, The butcher, he said, "Will you take it, ma'am, or shall I send it C'round?" She said, "No, I just wanna look at it 'cause I've been dieting C7like a Fchump, And that's what I've lost and I Cjust wanna see what it G7looks like in one Clump." Oh,

Chorus

Oh, Cone day I saw in Gerona on a river so quiet and reG7mote, Eight lovely girls from the college, they were all in the same Cboat. And as they rode in unison by me, I gallantly C7waved my Fhat, And I said with a sigh, "I Cwish that I could G7stroke a crew just like Cthat." Oh,

Chorus

With CRita I stood in a tube train, we were hanging on tight by the G7strap, When she let her pretty white hanky fall on a sleeping old gentleman's Clap. Now, when he awoke from his slumber he saw everyone C7staring at Fhim, And thinking it was his Cshirt tail he G7slyly tucked it Cin.

Chorus

This is one in a series of Benny Hill songs I've learned by ear. Most of these songs have only three chords which makes it easy figure them out. I might have missed some chords or put the wrong ones down, but the basic structure is there at any rate. I welcome any comments, corrections or suggestions for improvement.
