Sunny Afternoon (Kinks)

intro: Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb A A/G A/F A/E

Dm C

The taxman's taken all my dough

F C

And left me in my stately home

A A/G A/F A/E Dm

Lazin' on a sunny afternoon

And I can't sail my yacht

He's taken everything I've got

All I've got's this sunny afternoon

D7 G7

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze

C7 F A7

I got a big fat mama tryin' to break me

Dm G7

And I love to live so pleasantly

D7 G7 C7

Live this life of luxury

F A7 Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb

Lazin' on a sunny afternoon

A A/G A/F A/E

In the summertime

My girlfriend's run off with my car

And gone back to her ma and pa

Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty

Now I'm sittin' here

Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer

All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away

Or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay

'Cause I love to live so pleasantly

Live this life of luxury

Lazin' on a sunny afternoon

In the summertime
