Unisex Chip Shop – Bill Bailey


G       / Cadd9      / x4

      G         Cadd9           G              D               Cadd9
I used to buy my chips from an oppressive chip shop regime.

G                          D                                              
The girl who worked there, she seemed happy,

        Cadd9                        G
But I knew it was not what it seemed.

Cadd9                   D               G               Em7
"Do you want salt and vinegar?", was what they made her say,

      Cadd9                     D
But in the language of the ghetto,

                Cadd9                   G       Cadd9
That means, "Help, I'm a woman in chains"

              G         Cadd9
I wanted to free her.

In my dreams I would see her.

   Am/B  C                            G
Running naked through the woods round Rainham,

                D                       G       Cadd9
If I had some tigers I'd train them.

        G       Cadd9
To protect her

           Am                      D                          G
From the sexual fascism that was lurking, round the gherkins

G        / Cadd9     /x2

     G                       Cadd9                        G             Cadd9
I'd lean across the counter and we would talk,

  G                          Cadd9                   G          Cadd9
I carved the name "Debbie" on a little wooden fork.

      Cadd9                      D
But into the shop came a skinhead gang,

        G               Em
They snatched the fork from my hand.

      Cadd9             D               G               Em
Debbie, she looked at me, to assert my masculinity.

      Cadd9             D               G       Cadd9   G
I said "Oi!", they said "What?", I said "Nothing”
