Intro: Gb7
 
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!
