Verse 1: Gb7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is B I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. Gb7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, B Abm E Ebm Abm7 Db7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. Gb7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses B Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- Gb7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, B Abm E Ebm Abm Fm I have no clue what I'm doing. Bb7 Bm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. Eb Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. Bb7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm7 "Look, just go and get her!" Bb7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: Eb Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. Db7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. Gb7 Gb7 That's how things get better. Chorus: B Gb7 Give life's little guys some ink, E And when it dries just watch what happens. Esus2 Gb B Those kids will live and breathe right on the page Gb7 E And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Esus2 Gb Abm And who's there with her camera and her pen A As boys turn into men? Gbm7 They'll storm the gates and then Gb E Gb B5 Esus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: Gb7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- B Gb7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- B Abm E Ebm Abm7 Db7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. Gb7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. B The fact is he's also the face of the strike- Gb7 What a face- face the fact, B Abm E Ebm Abm Fm That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. Bb7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" Eb And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? Bb7 Absolutely, that is genius! Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. Bb7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting Eb And think of the one we'll create. Db7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. Gb7 Gb7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: B Gb7 E Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Esus2 Gb B Gb7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, E And I can't watch what happens. Esus2 Gb Abm A But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Abm A It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: B5 B5 B5 E And it just so happens that we just might win, Em Gb7 So whatever happens! B5 Dbm7 Gb7 B Let's begin!
