Capo: 1st fret

[Intro]
C F/C C F/C
 
[Verse 1]
        C
Can you stand upon one leg
     Dm
It’s harder than you think
   Cmaj7
If you can do it without falling down
        F
You can do just about anything
Dm     G
Go on, see if you can
Dm      G                         C
See how long you can stand on one leg
 
[Instrumental]
C F/C C F/C
 
[Verse 2]
        C
Can you beat your dad at chess
     Dm
It’s harder than you think
Cmaj7
Sit him down at Christmas, turn the TV off
                 F
Give him lots of chocolates and a drink
    Dm       G
And he might give you a match
    Dm               G
And when you’ve been duly dispatched
        C            G/C
He will laugh, ha ha ha
           Bb/C           A
And you’ll say, ‘one more game’
 
[Verse 3]
        D
Can you write a silly song
     Em
It’s harder than you think
Dmaj7
One that’s not too short, one that’s not too long
                   G
One that can makes everybody sing
Em     A
Go on, give it a try
    Em       A
You might do better than I
          D              A/C#         C
It’s just like trying to stand on one leg
 
[Verse 4]
        B7      E
Tell me can you tell a funny joke
         F#m
One that makes you laugh out loud
         E/G#
One that makes the milk come out your nose
       A
If you know a funny joke then tell it now...
 
[Instrumental]
F#m B F#m B
 
[Verse 5]
           E           G#m
That’s not bad, I’m impressed
            Bm        C#
But there’s one final test
        F#                        G#m
Can you hold a singing note for a stupidly long time
      F#/Bb
Well it’s my party piece so let’s make it a little harder
   B
By starting it way up high
G#m      C#
Come on, give it a go
G#m            C#
Let’s see how long you can hoooold
        F#
On to a note!

                  Can you stand upon one leg
It's harder than you think
If you can do it without falling down
You can do just about anything
Go on, see if you can
See how long you can stand on one leg

Can you beat your dad at chess
It's harder than you think
Sit him down at Christmas
Turn the TV off
Give him lots of chocolates and a drink
And he might give you a match
And when you've been duly dispatched he will laugh
Ha ha ha
And you'll say, 'one more game'

Can you write a silly song
It's harder than you think
One that's not too short
One that's not too long
One that can make everybody sing
Go on, give it a try
You might do better than I
It's just like trying to stand on one leg

Tell me can you tell a funny joke
One that makes you laugh out loud
One that makes the milk come out your nose
If you know a funny joke then tell it now...

...That's not bad, I'm impressed
But there's one final test

Can you hold a singing note for a stupidly long time
Well it's my party piece so let's make it a little harder
By starting it way up high
Come on, give it a go
Let's see how long you can hoo...old on to a note!
