FROM: My Fair Lady
Lyrics and Chords

[ Abdim7 = xx0101 ; Capo 3 ]

Poor Professor Higgins
Poor Professor Higgins
Night and day he slaves away
Oh, poor Professor Higgins
All day long on his feet
Up and down until he’s numb
Doesn’t rest, doesn’t eat
Doesn’t touch a crumb

/ F# – B – / / F# G# A B / C# – – – /
/ F# C# F# C# / / A E A E / A E A – /

Poor Professor Higgins
Poor Professor Higgins
On he plods against all odds
Oh, poor Professor Higgins
Nine P.M., ten P.M.
On through midnight ev’ry night
One A.M., two A.M.
Three…!

Quit, Professor Higgins
Quit, Professor Higgins
Hear our plea, or payday we
Will quit, Professor Higgins
Ay not I, O not Ow
Pounding, pounding in our brain
Ay not I, O not Ow
Don’t say “Rine,” say “Rain”…

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
I think she’s got it! I think she’s got it!
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
By George, she’s got it! By George, she’s got it!
Now, once again where does it rain?
On the plain! On the plain!
And where’s that soggy plain?
In Spain! In Spain!

/ D – A7 – D – – – / / G – D – / A7 – D – / G – F# – / C#7 – F# A7 /

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!

/ D – A7 – D – – – / /

In Hartford, Heresford, and Hampshire?
Hurricanes hardly happen
How kind of you to let me come!

/ G Abdim7 Am7 D7 / G – D7sus4 D7 C#7 – – – / – – – – /

Now once again, where does it rain?
On the plain! On the plain!
And where’s that blasted plain?
In Spain! In Spain!

/ Em7 – D – / A7 – D – / G – F# – / C#7 – F# A7 /

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
