Verse 1: G7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is C I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. G7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, C Am F Em Am7 D7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. G7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses C Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- G7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, C Am F Em Am Gbm I have no clue what I'm doing. B7 Cm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. E Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. B7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" E Dbm A Abm Dbm7 "Look, just go and get her!" B7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: E Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. D7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. G7 G7 That's how things get better. Chorus: C G7 Give life's little guys some ink, F And when it dries just watch what happens. Fsus2 G C Those kids will live and breathe right on the page G7 F And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Fsus2 G Am And who's there with her camera and her pen Bb As boys turn into men? Gm7 They'll storm the gates and then G F G C5 Fsus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: G7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- C G7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- C Am F Em Am7 D7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. G7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. C The fact is he's also the face of the strike- G7 What a face- face the fact, C Am F Em Am Gbm That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. B7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" E And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? B7 Absolutely, that is genius! E Dbm A Abm Dbm7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. B7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting E And think of the one we'll create. D7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. G7 G7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: C G7 F Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Fsus2 G C G7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, F And I can't watch what happens. Fsus2 G Am Bb But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Am Bb It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: C5 C5 C5 F And it just so happens that we just might win, Fm G7 So whatever happens! C5 Dm7 G7 C Let's begin!
