Intro -x2-: Eb  Bb  Gm7  F 

Verse:
-F-       Eb    
Struck by lightning,
                     Bb
Sounds pretty frightening,
                     Gm7         F
But you know the chances are so small.
           Eb    
Stuck by a bee sting,
                  Bb
Nothing but a bee thing,
                           Gm7            F
Better chance you're gonna buy it at the mall.
           Eb                       
But it's a twenty-three or four-to-one,
     Bb                    Gm7                F
That you can fall in love by the end of this song.
   Eb    
So get up, get up,
                Bb
Tell the bookie "put a bet on",
           Gm7           F
Not a damn thing will go wrong.

Chorus:
    Eb             Bb            Gm7
The odds are that we will probably be,
F
Alright,
Eb                    Bb
Odds are we gonna be alright,
     Gm7               F
Odds are we gonna be alright tonight,
    Eb             Bb            Gm7
The odds are that we will probably be,
F
Alright,
Eb                    Bb
Odds are we gonna be alright,
     Gm7              F                        -Eb-
Odds are we gonna be alright for another night.

Verse -same as first-::
Hit by the a-train,
Crashed in an airplane,
I wouldn't recommend either one,
Killed by a great white,
Or a meteorite,
I guess there ain't no way to go that's fun,
But somewhere in the world,
Someone is gonna fall in love by the end of this song.
So get up, get up,
No, it's never gonna let up,
So you might as well sing along.

Chorus:
    Eb             Bb            Gm7
The odds are that we will probably be,
F
Alright,
Eb                    Bb
Odds are we gonna be alright,
     Gm7               F
Odds are we gonna be alright tonight,
    Eb             Bb            Gm7
The odds are that we will probably be,
F
Alright,
Eb                    Bb
Odds are we gonna be alright,
     Gm7              F                        -Eb-
Odds are we gonna be alright for another night.

Bridge:
Eb       Bb         Gm7
 Sure things go wrong,
    F              Eb    
But I'll take my chances,
 Bb       Gm7
Odds are long,
   F       Eb      Bb  Gm7  F
So why not plaaaaaaaaaaaay?
