Verse 1: Ab7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is Db I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. Ab7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, Db Bbm Gb Fm Bbm7 Eb7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. Ab7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses Db Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- Ab7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, Db Bbm Gb Fm Bbm Gm I have no clue what I'm doing. C7 Dbm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. F Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. C7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" F Dm Bb Am Dm7 "Look, just go and get her!" C7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: F Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. Eb7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. Ab7 Ab7 That's how things get better. Chorus: Db Ab7 Give life's little guys some ink, Gb And when it dries just watch what happens. Gbsus2 Ab Db Those kids will live and breathe right on the page Ab7 Gb And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Gbsus2 Ab Bbm And who's there with her camera and her pen B As boys turn into men? Abm7 They'll storm the gates and then Ab Gb Ab Db5 Gbsus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: Ab7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- Db Ab7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- Db Bbm Gb Fm Bbm7 Eb7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. Ab7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. Db The fact is he's also the face of the strike- Ab7 What a face- face the fact, Db Bbm Gb Fm Bbm Gm That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. C7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" F And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? C7 Absolutely, that is genius! F Dm Bb Am Dm7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. C7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting F And think of the one we'll create. Eb7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. Ab7 Ab7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: Db Ab7 Gb Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Gbsus2 Ab Db Ab7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, Gb And I can't watch what happens. Gbsus2 Ab Bbm B But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Bbm B It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: Db5 Db5 Db5 Gb And it just so happens that we just might win, Gbm Ab7 So whatever happens! Db5 Ebm7 Ab7 Db Let's begin!
