            C                                 F
There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night,
   G                              G7               C
 I didn't see him in the dark, but boy, I feIt his bite.
                                   F
 I jumped high up into the air and when I hit the ground,
       G                           G7            C
 that crafty redback spider wasn't nowhere to be found.

  C                                 F
I rushed in to the missus, told her just where I'd been bit
     G                                    G7            C
she grabbed the cut-throat razor blade, I nearly took a fit.
                                        F
I said, "Forget what's on your mind and call the doctor please,
           G                                G7               C
'cause I've got a feeling that your cure is worse than the disease." 

CHORUS
            F                                  C
There was a redback on the toilet seat, when I was there last night,
  D                              D7               G
I didn't see him in the dark, but boy, I feIt his bite.
   C                            F
And now I'm here in hospital, a sad and sorry plight,
      G                                 G7               C
and I curse that redback spider on the toilet seat last night.
 
  C                                 F
I can't lie down, I can't sit up, I don't know what to do,
    G                               G7              C
the nurses think it's funny, that's not my point of view.
                                   F
I tell you, it's embarrassing, and that's to say the least,
      G                                       G7          C
'cause I'm too sick to eat a bite, while the spider had a feast.  

CHORUS
    C                               F
And when I get back home again I’ll tell you what I’ll do,
    G                                G7                 C
I’ll make that redback suffer for the pain I'm going through.
                                    F
I've had so many needles, that I'm looking like a sieve,
      G                              G7           C
and I promise you that spider hasn't very long to live.
 
CHORUS
            F                                  C
There was a redback on the toilet seat, when I was there last night,
  D                              D7               G
I didn't see him in the dark, but boy, I feIt his bite.
   C                            F
And now I'm here in hospital, a sad and sorry plight,
      G                                 G7               C
and I curse that redback spider on the toilet seat last night.
