Lyrics
Intro: G, Em 4 x

1.)
I've spent my days in restless ways, messed around with waifs and strays
G Bm Em G
but after all that's what I wanted
A D
she was simply searching for, another house, another door
G Bm Em G
when she knocked on mine, she got it.
A D

2.)
I opened up her eyes to situations, she had previously
G Bm Em G
denied even existed
A D
and once or twice I made her cry, but heaven knows I didn't try to
G Bm Em G
foul it up, or twist it.
A D

Chorus:
The walrus and the carpenter, the whiting and the snail
C Bm
the lightening and the wind that wail
G C
and all the freaks that ever were and the weirds that will be
A
got nothing on you and me.
D

Instrumental: G, Em, A, D 2 x

Chorus:
The walrus and the carpenter, the whiting and the snail
C Bm
the lightening and the wind that wail
G C
and all the freaks that ever were and the weirds that will be
A
got nothing on you and me.
D

3.)
You and me are gonna be, the sensations of the seventies
G Bm Em G
they'll maybe even build us a statue
A D
and in some distant future day, when we're strolling down the promenade
G Bm Em G
you'll turn to me and say, is that you ?
A D

Chorus:
The walrus and the carpenter, the whiting and the snail
C Bm
the lightening and the wind that wail
G C
and all the freaks that ever were and the weirds that will be
A
got nothing on you and me.
D

Instrumental: G, Em 8 x ( then fade out )
