Verse 1: Db7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is Gb I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. Db7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, Gb Ebm B Bbm Ebm7 Ab7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. Db7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses Gb Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- Db7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, Gb Ebm B Bbm Ebm Cm I have no clue what I'm doing. F7 Gbm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. Bb Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. F7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" Bb Gm Eb Dm Gm7 "Look, just go and get her!" F7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: Bb Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. Ab7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. Db7 Db7 That's how things get better. Chorus: Gb Db7 Give life's little guys some ink, B And when it dries just watch what happens. Bsus2 Db Gb Those kids will live and breathe right on the page Db7 B And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Bsus2 Db Ebm And who's there with her camera and her pen E As boys turn into men? Dbm7 They'll storm the gates and then Db B Db Gb5 Bsus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: Db7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- Gb Db7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- Gb Ebm B Bbm Ebm7 Ab7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. Db7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. Gb The fact is he's also the face of the strike- Db7 What a face- face the fact, Gb Ebm B Bbm Ebm Cm That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. F7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" Bb And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? F7 Absolutely, that is genius! Bb Gm Eb Dm Gm7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. F7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting Bb And think of the one we'll create. Ab7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. Db7 Db7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: Gb Db7 B Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Bsus2 Db Gb Db7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, B And I can't watch what happens. Bsus2 Db Ebm E But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Ebm E It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: Gb5 Gb5 Gb5 B And it just so happens that we just might win, Bm Db7 So whatever happens! Gb5 Abm7 Db7 Gb Let's begin!
