Chords and lyrics for A Well Respected Man by Kinks

G 
1.’Cause he  
C 
gets up  
G 
in the  
Am 
morning, and he
C 
goes 
 
to
G 
work 
 
at
Am 
nine,
 
and he  
C 
comes 
 
 
G 
home at  
Am 
five-thirty, gets the
C 
same 
 
train
G 
every
Am 
time.
 
’cause his  
C 
world is  
G 
built on  
Am 
punctuality,
C 
to him it
G 
never
Am 
fails.
 
Chorus: And he’s  
C 
oh 
 
 
G 
so 
 
 
Am 
good, and he’s
C 
oh,
G 
so
Am 
fine,
 
and he’s  
C 
oh, 
 
 
G 
so 
 
 
Am 
healthy, in his
C 
body
G 
and 
 
his
Am 
mind.
 
He’s a  
F 
well respected  
Em 
man about town,
 
F 
doing the best things,  
D 
so 
 
 
G 
conservatively.
 
2.And his  
C 
mother 
 
 
G 
goes to  
Am 
meetings, while his
C 
father
G 
paws 
 
the
Am 
maid,
 
And she  
C 
stirs her  
G 
tea with  
Am 
countenance, 
 
while
C 
discussing
G 
foreign 
 
 
Am 
trade,
 
And she  
C 
passes 
 
 
G 
looks as  
Am 
well as bills at
C 
every
G 
sauve 
 
young
 
Am 
man.
 
3.And he  
C 
likes his  
G 
own back  
Am 
yard, and he
C 
likes 
 
his
G 
fags 
 
the
Am 
best.
 
‘Cause he’s  
C 
better 
 
 
G 
than the  
Am 
rest and his
C 
own 
 
sweat
G 
smells
 
the  
Am 
best.
 
And he  
C 
hopes to  
G 
grab his f
Am 
ather’s loot when
C 
pater
G 
passes
Am 
on.
 
4. And he  
C 
plays the  
G 
stocks and  
Am 
shares, and he
C 
goes 
 
to
G 
the
Am 
regatta.
 
He  
C 
adores the  
G 
girl next  
Am 
door, and he’s
C 
dying
G 
to get at
Am 
her,
 
But his  
C 
mother 
 
 
G 
knows the  
Am 
best about the
C 
matri
G 
monial
Am 
state.
