Seven AM, the usual morning lineup
B                                                  E
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
C                                       G
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
       B            E              Gb7       B
Sweep again, and by then it's like seven fifteen


            E      A
And so I'll read a book
         Gbm     E
Or maybe two or three
           Dbm      Gbm              A    E
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
          Dbm         Gbm
I'll play guitar and knit
             A E   Dbm
And cook and basically
            Gb7           B      E             
Just wonder when will my life begin?

B                                           E
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
B                                E
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
C                                G
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
          B              E              Gb7
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
      B
Sew a dress!


         E           A
And I'll re-read the books
          Gbm      E
If I have time to spare
               Dbm         Gbm
I'll paint the walls some more
                 A        E
I'm sure there's room somewhere
              Dbm        Gbm
And then I'll brush and brush
              A     E   Dbm
And brush and brush my hair
             Gbm              A E    Dbm
Stuck in the same place I've always been


              Gbm            E
And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'
    A             E    Dbm
And wanderin' and wonderin'
Gbm            B     E
When will my life begin?


         A
Tomorrow night
    E             A
The lights will appear
E              A        E        A        B
Just like they do on my birthday each year
Dbm         Gb7 
What is it like
B                    E7
Out there where they glow?
A            E
Now that I'm older
       A
Mother might just
       B
Let me go...
