This is big,.. lady,.. don't screw it up,..

                         A   F#m   D C#m F#m7 B7
This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing!

Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses

And let's pray it does,.. cause as I may have mentioned,..

I have no clue what I'm doing!

"A girl..?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell..?" "Is that even legal..?"

Db   Bbm Gb Fm Bbm7
"Look,.. just go and get her!"

Ab7
Not only that,.. there's a story behind the story

Thousands of children,.. exploited,.. invisible!

Speak up,.. take a stand,.. and there's someone to write about it!

That's how things get better!

Give life's little guys some ink,..

E7
Picture a handsome,.. heroically charismatic-

A(add4)/E                                              E7
Plain spoken,.. know nothing,.. skirt-chasing,.. cocky little son of a-


                                          A   F#m D C#m F#m7 B7
Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion!

       E7
What a face- face the fact,..

                                          A F#m D C#m F#m D#m7b5
That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean!

Ab7
Like someone said,.. "Power tends to corrupt"

Absolutely,.. that is genius!

                                          Db Bbm Gb    Fm Bbm7
But give me some time,.. I'll be twice as good as that six months from never!

Ab7
Just look around at the world we're inheriting

   Db/Ab
And think of the one we'll create!

                         B7
Their mistake is they got old,.. that is not a mistake we'll be making!

       E7sus               E7
No sir,.. we'll stay young forever!


[Break]~
A                         E7sus                  D
Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens!

   Dsus2   E    A                     E7sus
It's David and Goliath,.. do or die! The fight is on,..

             D
And I can't watch what happens!

Dsus2   E      F#m                     G
But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in!

F#m                      G
It can't be any worse than how it's been!


[Ending]~
