Intro: play one verse instrumentally

 

A [Am]comical [C]genius was [G]thinking one [Dm]day

How he'd take up a [C]job and re[Em]ceive handy [Am]pay

He [Dm]didn't like [Am]beggin' and [Em]work was to [Am]hard

So he got a bright [C]notion to join [Em]up the [G]"Guards"

 

Diddlee [Dm]I dum diddlee [Am]I dum diddlee I [Em]dum dum [G]day [Dm]

 

Well he [Am]went up to [C]Dublin to the [G]depot went [Dm]in

Got a new suit of [C]blue as [Em]bright as new [Am]pins

They [Dm]drilled him they [Am]drilled him they [Em]drilled him so [Am]hard

The ould sergeant pro[C]claimed him a [Em]fully fledge [G]guard

 

Diddlee [Dm]I dum diddlee [Am]I dum diddlee I [Em]dum dum [G]day [Dm]

 

He was [Am]stationed some[C]where near the [G]town of A[Dm]thy

Rounds the roads of that [C]district he [Em]kept a close [Am]eye

Now the [Dm]girls they a[Am]dmired him [Em]as all brazers [Am]do

Fall in love with the [C]guard and his [Em]new suit of [G]blue

 

Diddlee [Dm]I dum diddlee [Am]I dum diddlee I [Em]dum dum [G]day [Dm]

 

Well they'd [Am]laugh and they'd [C]wink and they'd [G]nod as he'd [Dm]pass

Oh but this civee [C]guard has his [Em]eye on one [Am]lass

But [Dm]this little coll[Am]een she [Em]being a die [Am]hard

Soon made it quite [C]clear that she [Em]wanted no [G]guard

 

Diddlee [Dm]I dum diddlee [Am]I dum diddlee I [Em]dum dum [G]day [Dm]

 

One [Am]time while on [C]duty on a [G]dark winter's [Dm]night

He caught her out [C]cycling with[Em]out any [Am]light

Where's your [Dm]light miss, said [Am]he, for an [Em]answer sez [Am]she

It's next to me [C]liver, where [Em]you'll never [G]be

 

Diddlee [Dm]I dum diddlee [Am]I dum diddlee I [Em]dum dum [G]day

A Comical Genious Song Lyrics Without Chords 

A comical genius was thinking one day

How he'd take up a job and receive handy pay

He didn't like beggin' and work was to hard

So he got a bright notion to join up the "Guards"

 

Diddlee I dum diddlee I dum diddlee I dum dum day

 

Well he went up to Dublin to the depot went in

Got a new suit of blue as bright as new pins

They drilled him they [Am]drilled him they drilled him so hard

The ould sergeant proclaimed him a fully fledge guard

 

Diddlee I dum diddlee I dum diddlee I dum dum day

 

He was stationed somewhere near the town of Athy

Rounds the roads of that district he kept a close eye

Now the girls they admired him as all brazers do

Fall in love with the guard and his new suit of blue

 

Diddlee I dum diddlee I dum diddlee I dum dum day

 

Well they'd laugh and they'd wink and they'd nod as he'd pass

Oh but this civee guard has his eye on one lass

But this little colleen she being a die hard

Soon made it quite clear that she wanted no guard

 

Diddlee I dum diddlee I dum diddlee I dum dum day

 

One time while on duty on a dark winter's night

He caught her out cycling without any light

Where's your light miss, said he, for an answer sez she

It's next to me liver, where you'll never be

 

Diddlee I dum diddlee I dum diddlee I dum dum day
