Verse 1: Eb7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is Ab I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. Eb7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, Ab Fm Db Cm Fm7 Bb7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. Eb7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses Ab Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- Eb7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, Ab Fm Db Cm Fm Dm I have no clue what I'm doing. G7 Abm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. C Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. G7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" C Am F Em Am7 "Look, just go and get her!" G7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: C Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. Bb7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. Eb7 Eb7 That's how things get better. Chorus: Ab Eb7 Give life's little guys some ink, Db And when it dries just watch what happens. Dbsus2 Eb Ab Those kids will live and breathe right on the page Eb7 Db And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Dbsus2 Eb Fm And who's there with her camera and her pen Gb As boys turn into men? Ebm7 They'll storm the gates and then Eb Db Eb Ab5 Dbsus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: Eb7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- Ab Eb7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- Ab Fm Db Cm Fm7 Bb7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. Eb7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. Ab The fact is he's also the face of the strike- Eb7 What a face- face the fact, Ab Fm Db Cm Fm Dm That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. G7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" C And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? G7 Absolutely, that is genius! C Am F Em Am7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. G7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting C And think of the one we'll create. Bb7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. Eb7 Eb7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: Ab Eb7 Db Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Dbsus2 Eb Ab Eb7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, Db And I can't watch what happens. Dbsus2 Eb Fm Gb But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Fm Gb It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: Ab5 Ab5 Ab5 Db And it just so happens that we just might win, Dbm Eb7 So whatever happens! Ab5 Bbm7 Eb7 Ab Let's begin!
