"House of Bamboo" as written by Bill Crompton and Norman Murrells....
A G A
Number fifty-four,

A G Em7 A
The house with the bamboo door,

A G Em7 A G
Bamboo roof and bamboo walls,

Em7 A G Em7 A
They've even got a bamboo floor!


Em7 A G/B A7 D6 Dalt Gdim D
You must get to know Soho Joe,

Em7 A G/B A7
He runs an Expresso,

D C D
Called the House of Bamboo.


Em7 A G/B A7
It's-a made of sticks.

D6 Dalt Gdim D
Sticks and bricks,

Em7 A G/B A7
But you can get your kicks

D C D
In the house of bamboo.


A7 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Em7 A7
In this ca - si - no, you can drink a chi no,

D A7 G D Bm7 A7 G D
And it's gotcha swingin' to the cha cha

A7 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Em7 A7
Dance the bo - le - ro in a som - bre - ro.

D A7 G D
Shake like a snake!


A7 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Em7 A7
You wanna drop in when the cats are hop - pin'.

D A7 G D Bm7 A7 G D
Let your two feet move-a to the big beat;

A7 Em7 G/B A7 Em7 A7 Em7 A7
Pick yourself a kit - ten and listen to a plat - ter

D A7 G D
That rocks the juke-box!


Em7 A G/B A7 D6 Dalt Gdim D
I'm-a telling you, when you're blue,

Em7 A G/B A7
Well there's a lot to do

D C D
In the House Of Bamboo.
