The "Hartlepool Monkey" chords were provided for us by Bob Skingle.
Lyrics by Alan Wilkinson.

G>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>D

IT HAPPENED IN OLD HARTLEPOOL ABOUT THE TIME THAT FRANCE

D>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>G

THE EMPEROR NAPOLEON WAS LEADING US A DANCE

G>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>D>>>>>>>>>>>>>Am

SAILING DOWN THE COAST CAME A BRITISH MAN OF WAR

D>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>G

THE CAPTAIN'S PET MONKEY WAS WASHED UP ON THE SHORE


CHORUS

G>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>D

OLD FOLKS, YOUNG FOLKS, EVERYONE AND EACH

D>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>G

COME AND SEE THE FRENCHIE THAT'S LANDED ON THE BEACH

G>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>D>>>>>>>>>>>Am

HE'S GOT LONG ARMS AND GREAT LONG TAIL, HE'S COVERED ALL IN HAIR

D>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>G

WE THINK THAT HE'S A SPY SO WE'LL HANG HIM IN THE SQUARE
