lyrics

Capo 2
{D D F G}
Dear Mr Baynton
I think you're rather swell
Many feel you're handsome and I quite agree as well
Haven't seen every sketch you've been in
But I will have soon
I love every song I've heard you sing
You can't half carry a tune

{D, Cadd9} x2

{D D F G}
Dear Mr Baynton
No, please don't scrawl your sobriquet
I need no autograph or photograph
To prove it if we met
Now I don't want you to think
I'm just another obsessed fan
{Bb}
But I'd like to convey
{C}
My utter admiration
For such an outstanding man

{D, Cadd9} x2

{Bb C}
But I get this urge to write to you
And maybe we could chat
You send me an at-reply
And say that I can call you
Say that I can call you Mat

{D, Cadd9} x2

{D D F G}
Dear Mr Baynton
I simply adored your E.P.
And I think that Mrs. Winchester
Might have approved of me
'Cos I don't want your babies
And don't track you on foursquare
And I didn't pay a hundred pounds
Just for a lock of your hair

{D, Cadd9} x2

{D D F G}
I don't collect the tea-bags from
Your empty cups of tea
And I definitely don't play out our marriage on Sims 3
I saw that creep at the bus-stop
Watching you in the rain
{Bb}
But no need to report it
{C}
'Cos I've got it sorted
They won't bother you again.

{D, Cadd9} x2

{Bb C}
But I get this urge to write to you
And maybe you'll reply
A verbal commendation or
Some contact information
Is what I hope you will supply

{D, Cadd9} x2
{D D F G} x3
{Bb C}x3
{D, Cadd9} x2

{Bb C}
But I get this urge to write to you and maybe you'll reply
A verbal commendation's what I'm hoping you'll supply
I get this urge to write to you and maybe we could chat
You send me an at-reply and say that I can call you
Say that I can call you Mat.
