    Dbm	                          Ab
Her name was Flora Spread and she lived on Hovis Hill
A	                        D	      Ab
Overlooking Baker Town from the window of her flour mill
    Dbm	                                 Ab
The bright lights of the city fueled her longing to create
	 A	                         D	          Ab
With the innovative bakers with whom she knew she could relate

    Dbm	               Ab	      A	                D  Ab
She saw the cakes they cooked and the muffins that they made
	Dbm	        Ab	           A	               D  Ab
But she kept on beating her bread, all the while feeling betrayed
         Dbm                Ab	         A	          D  Ab		
That her mother left her in this mess of yeast, flour and dough
    Dbm	            Ab	            A	                 Ab	Dbm  B  Gb
She must taste inspiration and stop chewing the bread of woe
     Dbm	 B  Gb

Dbm	                 B
Down in baker town lived Victoria Sponge
    Gb	                                  Ab
But her cakes just weren't selling so she knew that it was time to take
    Dbm	                   B
A plunge into the new, and see things from a brand new view
     B	                      Ab
"And yes young Miss Flora I am talking to you

	Dbm	         Ab	           A	           D  Ab
Won't you come down that hill of yours and work here in my shop?
    Dbm	           Ab	        A	 D  Ab
You might have to bake until the ovens pop!
      Dbm	  Ab	    A    D  Ab
But I need your creative eye
Dbm	Ab	   A	      Ab
With my wisdom and your innovation
  Dbm	        Ab	 A	         Ab    Dbm  B  Gb	
Together we can bake the Perfect Success Pie
           Dbm  B  Gb
Success Pie
	Dbm  B  Gb	Ab
Success Pie-ie-iee"
A      Ab
 Bread! BREAD!

	   Dbm	                  Ab
After just one week in that shop, Flora's business was booming
    A	                        D	     Ab
Her creativity blooming and her customers consuming
     Dbm	                    Ab
But looming, on the horizon, lay a rising problem
A	                             D	           Ab
People couldn't stop eating, and there was nothing that could stop them

Dbm	        Ab	  A	            D  Ab
What was once a people of pretty balanced diets
Dbm	         Ab	         A	    D	    Ab
Baker Town without its bread was revolution without riots
Dbm	         Ab	            A	            D  Ab
Flora closed her shop down, but she knew it was too late
    Dbm	            Ab	       A	           Ab	  Dbm  B  Gb
And soon enough the population of the town was overweight
	Dbm  B  Gb
    Dbm	B	Gb	Ab  A  Ab
A      Ab
 Bread! BREAD!

    Dbm   Ab   A   D Ab
    Dbm   Ab   A   B

      Db	    Gbm	         Db	Gbm	         Db
And so, the very next day Flora went back to her mill 
    Gbm	               Db     Gbm  B
And opened up her bread shop
        Db	  Gbm	        Db	     Gbm	           Db
But it seemed, to Flora's dismay that no one wanted her bread
    Gbm	            Db	         Gbm	B
And she was left alone up on the hilltop

Gb   A	      B
 Victoria Sponge kept on baking
Gb     A	          Ab	     G
 With recipes she stole from Flora's notes
Gb    A	        B
 And Flora's heart kept breaking
Gb	 A	        Ab	        G	    Gb
 As the cakes continued rising, and the bread became toast...

  1. notjustblonde

    The chord above “and yes young miss flora” sounds better if you use the same one as above “but her cakes just weren’t selling” x

  2. thatgirlfromtheinternet

    I think 1 up sounds good and its easy to play

  3. Circus.platypus

    I really love this song transposed 4 points down, but the Eb chord near the end seems off… any suggestions for a replacement?

  4. myunicornmeows
