{c:Verso 1}
Now [F]I go window cleaning to [G7]earn an honest bob.
[C]For a nosey parker it's an interesting [F]job
[F]Now it's a job that [F7]just suits me, [Bb]A window cleaner [G7]you will be.
If [F]you could see what [D7]I can see [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows.
[F]The honeymooning [F7]couples too, [Bb]You should see them [G7]bill and coo.
You'd [F]be surprised at [D7]things they do [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows.

[A7]In my profession I work hard, [D7]but I'll never stop.
[G7]I'll climb this blinking ladder 'til I [C]get right to the [C7]top.

{c:Verso 2}
[F]The blushing bride she [F7]looks divine, The [Bb]bridegroom he is [G7]doing fine
I'd [F]rather have his [D7]job than mine [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows.
[F]The chambermaid sweet [F7]names I call, It's a [Bb]wonder [G7]I don't fall.
My [F]minds not on my [D7]work at all [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows
[F]I know a fellow [F7]such a swell, He has a [Bb]thirst it's [G7]plain to tell.
I've [F]seen him drink his [D7]bath as well [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows, oh

[F]There's a famous [F7]talkie queen, [Bb]looks a flapper [G7]on the screen.
She's [F]more like eighty [D7]than eighteen [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows.
[F]She pulls her hair all [F7]down behind, Then [Bb]pulls down her, [G7]never mind,
and After [F]that pulls [D7]down the blind [Db7]When I'm cleaning [F]windows.
