Lyrics And Chord Progressions

Title: Mean Mr. Mustard
Artist: The Beatles
Words & Music By: Lennon/ McCartney

[Verse 1]
Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten-bob note up his nose

            E7       C7  B7
He's such a mean old man
       E7       C7  B7
Such a mean old man

[Verse 2]
His sister Shirley works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the Queen
It's the only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene

            E7        C7  B7
He's such a dirty old man
            E7        C7  B7
He's such a dirty old man
