C
Leo couldn’t do anything right

Chorus:
                    Dm                                Am
He couldn’t read (oh oh), he couldn’t write (oh oh)
                    Dm                        Am
He couldn’t draw (oh dear) and such a sloppy eater
      C
He never said a word (never said a word)
       Dm                                    E7
His father was worried, but his mother said
E7       
“Leo, Leo, Leo… he’s just a late bloomer”
Am    Bb    Am    E7/G# x2
Oh oh oh oh… oh oh oh oh…. x2

Verse 1:
F                               C
Everyday and every night
                                                  G   
His father watched for signs of blooming

“Patience” said his mother
      C
“A watched bloomer never blooms”

Chorus (as above)

Verse 2:
F                                                                C
The snow in the winter, the flowers in the spring
                                                                            G
They wondered whether Leo would ever do his thing
G   
But in his own time and in his own way
C
One day Leo bloomed!

                    Dm                                    Am
Now he can read (uh huh) now he can write (uh huh)
                    Dm                          Am
Now he can draw (oh yeah) and not a sloppy eater
      C
He said his first words (he said his first words)
    Dm                                        E7
“I made it!” he shouted and his mother said
E7
“Leo, Leo, Leo… you’re just a late bloomer”
Am    Bb    Am    E7/G# x2
Oh oh oh oh… oh oh oh oh…. x2
