[INTRO:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E Am 
[VERSE 1:]
E7 Am 
Lord above, protect me from my family
E7 
Do not let them get in touch with me
Am D 
For I am bound to be a kitchen porter
Am E7 Am 
Sure is a convenient thing to be
[VERSE 2:]
E7 Am 
I don't mind the sweating and the screaming
E7 
Gimme a room seven foot by three
Am D 
For I have urgent business on the mainland
Am E7 Am 
It sure is a convenient place to be
[VERSE 3:]
E7 Am 
Every evening when my shift is over
E7 
Scribble around a eucalyptus tree
Am D 
It may not be the stairway up to heaven
Am E7 Am 
But it sure is a convenient thing to be
[INSTRUMENTAL:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E Am 
[VERSE 4:]
E7 Am 
Do not give me 'Fair Thee Well St. Peter's Port'
E7 
Do not give me Sarnia Cherie
Am D 
For I have urgent business on the mainland
Am E7 Am 
It sure is a convenient place to be
[VERSE 5:]
E7 Am 
Long may I smell eucalyptus
E7 
Keep those grasping hands across the sea
Am D 
For I don't wish to face the inconvenience
Am E7 Am 
When that urgent business catches up with me
[OUTRO:]  Am E Am E7 Am D Am E7 Am 
Sure is a convenient place to be
