Intro:
    F - Em - C
    Dm - F - G

C                  G
Don't tell me you wanna be
      Am                   G        
The kind of girl who's drowning
C                    G          Am
And don't go holding on to anything
                        G
That's gonna keep you frowning, darling
Dm         
Everyone's compelled to look into the mirror
               Am
When they're crying
Dm 
Just because your tears are pretty
                              G
Doesn't mean they'll get you by


C                       F              G
Sing me a sad song and make me feel better
             C            F               G
Sing me a happy song and I might start to cry
            Dm                                       G
Because everything feels like it's going around in circles
       Dm                                    G                       
And everyone knows that the world is upside down


C                G
You were once a little baby
Am                  G
Full of optimistic wonder
C                 G
So what got into you to make you think
Am                       G
That it could pull you under, honey
Dm
Could it be that we were under
                         Am
The impression life was perfect?
-La, la, la, la, la-
Dm
And when the bubble burst
                                      G
We understood that every part of it hurts


C                       F              G
Sing me a sad song and make me feel better
             C            F               G
Sing me a happy song and I might start to cry
            Dm                                       G
Because everything feels like it's going around in circles
       Dm                                    G                       
And everyone knows that the world is upside down

Interlude:
    F - Em - C
    Dm - F - G

C    Dm       Em    F   G
I'm going to color my glasses rose
    C    Dm        Em     F        G
And I'm going to follow where the rainbow goes
        Dm                   G
And my pot of gold will be waiting


C                       F              G
So sing me a sad song and make me feel better
             C            F               G
Sing me a happy song and I might start to cry
            Dm                                       G
Because everything feels like it's going around in circles
       Dm                                    G                       
And everyone knows that the world is upside down
       Dm                          G       C
Yeah, everyone knows the world is upside down
