          EXERCISING SOME CONTROL
             ROY HARPER

INTRO:
NONE

VERSE:
 D
I`ve got a dog he`s like a two ton frog
  G         D
I call him `some control`
 A
Yesterday I took him for his walkies in the park
    D     G     D
He`s a beautiful thundering soul

  A               D    G   D
At first he never took a fancy to anyone passing by
     E
Until a big fat cop came into his sights
                A
And he had to know the reason why


PRE-CHORUS:
    D
So he took his little piece out of the gentleman`s leg
     G           F#
And the gentleman was sore surprised
   G            D  F#  Bm
And limping up to me he whispered quietly
D   F#    B
 `What are you playing at?`


CHORUS:
   E     A    D  F# B
`I`m exercising some control, I said
 E     A    D F# B
`Exercising some control
 E     A    D F#
Exercising some control.`


VERSE:
 D
When I awoke I gave meself a poke
  G              D
To make sure that I was still alive
  A
I noticed I was standing in a courtroom with a judge
    D         G        D
So I thought I`d better show him how to jive

  A
As I was freaking out with me fancy
   D     G      D
The judge said, `Give us a kiss`
  E
I said, `Oh dear, that`s a little bit queer
                   A
I think I`ll have to give this one a miss.`


PRE-CHORUS:
   D
But just as I was planning on a trip to the moon
    G         F#
In me everlasting rubber John
  G             D    F#   Bm
He said `OK Mutton Jeff— it`s no good acting deaf
D    F#   B
 Fined twenty quid you creep


CHORUS:
   E     A    D F# B
For exercising some control-ol-ol`
 E     A    D F# B
Exercising some control
 E     A    D F#
Exercising some control


BREAK:
 Bm              B
Underneath the washing powder headlines
    Em   E
We`ll meet at ten past nine
 A
You can do a clog-dance on the top of my chapatti
D  F#  B
 I don`t care no more


OUTRO:
    E     A    D F# B
About exercising some control-ol-ol
 E       A    D  F#  B
Swimming in the tadpole bowl-owl-owl
    E        A    D  F#  B
Whilst drinking in the tadpole bowl-owl-owl
 E       A    D  F#  B
Leaking in the tadpole bowl-owl-owl
 E     A    D
Exercising some control
