The Old Alarm Clock

	  		C                                  G       C 
When first I came to London In the year of 39 
      F                    C                            G 
The city looked so wonderful, and the girls were so Divine 
            F                      C                          G 
But the coppers got suspicious, and they soon gave me the knock 
         C                                G          C 
I was charged with being the owner, of an old alarm clock 

  
  C                                          G                              
Well next morning down by Marlborough Street, I caused no  
      C 
little stir 
      F         C          G 
The I.R.A were busy and a telephone did burr 
              F              C                   G 
Says the judge I'm going to charge you, with the possession of this machine. 
          C                               G  
And I'm also going to charge you, with the wearing of the  
C 
Green 
  
  
C                                       G             C 
Well says I to him, your honor, if you give me half a chance 
     F               C                                  G 
I'll show you how me small machine can make the peelers dance 
          F         C                                  G 
Well it ticks away politely, 'till you get an awful shock 
          C                            G             C 
And it ticks away the gellignite, on me old alarm clock 
  
  
C                                          G                C 
O the judge says listen here my man and I'll tell you of a plan 
     F              C              G 
For you and all your countrymen I do net give a damn 
             F           C                  G 
Well the only time you'll take is mine, ten years in Dartmoor dock 
        C                                    G            C 
And you can count it by the ticking, of your old alarm clock. 
  
  
C                                        G             C 
Well this lonely Dartmoor City would put many in the jigs 
       F               C                G 
The cell it isn't pretty and it isn't very big 
         F            C                            G 
Sure long ago I'd have left the place, if I had only got, 
           C                              G            C  
Ah me couple of sticks of gelignite and me old alarm clock
