The Birmingham Ho

	  		OK...Taxi! 

Em                                   D 
I met this girl in a Birmingham taxi 
                                    
I got it first, but she slipped in before me  

C                                     D 
Just as I was telling her, hey this is mine 'ho 

She already told the cab driver where to go  

  

G                               Em  
Me I always show respect for the ladies 

                      C 
I sat back and let her have it her way  

D                                               
So good lord sees me through darkness and light  

I tell you what I remembered from that night  

  

Em                                                  D 
I'm hungry, do you fancy a little something to eat?  

 I can't go on forever on Cognac and weed  

C                                               D 
But she was already on the way down in the seat  

I tried to stop her, or maybe I didn't  

  

G 
So there I was in a strange situation  

Em                                C 
The chauffeur said I can drop you off at the station  

        D 
I said no man, no don't  

I tell you when to stop keep your eyes on the road 

  

          Em                       D                 C 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

                Am                     G                  Bm C  
No, you don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

          D 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

  

Em                                  D 
Two hours later, she was still at it  

The driver had to refill gasoline and shit 

C                              
Baby baby, introduce yourself  

D 
What's your name, girl?  

  

          G     
My name is Fred  

Fred?  

Fred, yeah 

  

Em             C               
Fred, a'what a'what did you say?  

D 
Now that put me back a bit 'cos I'm not gay 

Now that put me back a bit 'cos I'm not gay  

  

          Em                       D                 C 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

                Am                     G                  Bm C 
No, you don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

          D 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

  

       G                                                D 
So whatever kind of trouble you might get yourself into 

       C                                            D   
Just think of me that night and what I went through 

                 G                                          D  
I thought it was Helen or Marie or whatever, giving me head 

         C                                       D  
Until I realised it was this dude called Fred ... Hello  

  

                           G 
And that was a Birmingham Ho 

              D 
Hey, ho hey, ho hey 

                          G  
And that was a Birmingham Ho 

                  D     
Hey, ho hey, ho hey, ho hey  

Take it away now..  

  

Em (Her kan du strengt tatt holde (Em) hele veien frem til refrenget, 
men vers grepene funker også greit) 

  

Hold on a minute, that's bullshit  

You told me it was a microphone  

And you wanted me to sing in it  

I have a lot of friends and I do lots of things for them  

I don't think it's me, I think it's you that have a problem  

So zip up and try to be a gentleman  

I have feelings too and I don't need you to hurt them  

So zip up and try to be a gentleman  

So zip up and try to be a gentleman  

  

          Em                       D                 C 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

                Am                     G                  Bm C  
No, you don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

          D 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

  

          Em                       D                 C 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

                Am                     G                  Bm C 
No, you don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK 

          D 
You don't have to be gay to make a friend feel good OK  

  

                           G 
And that was a Birmingham Ho 

              D 
Hey, ho hey, ho hey 

                          G  
And that was a Birmingham Ho 

                  D     
Hey, ho hey, ho hey, ho hey
