Verse 1: Bb7 "Write what you know", So they say, all I know is Eb I don't know what to write or the right way to write it. Bb7 This is big, lady, don't screw it up, Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm7 F7 This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing. Bb7 Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses Eb Ha! It's a cinch! It could practically write itself- Bb7 And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned, Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm Am I have no clue what I'm doing. D7 Ebm I insane? This is what I've been waiting for. G Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors. D7 "A girl?" "It's a girl!" "How the hell?" "Is that even legal?" G Em C Bm Em7 "Look, just go and get her!" D7 Not only that, there's a story behind the story: G Thousands of children, exploited, invisible. F7 Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write About it. Bb7 Bb7 That's how things get better. Chorus: Eb Bb7 Give life's little guys some ink, Ab And when it dries just watch what happens. Absus2 Bb Eb Those kids will live and breathe right on the page Bb7 Ab And once they're center stage, you watch what happens. Absus2 Bb Cm And who's there with her camera and her pen Db As boys turn into men? Bbm7 They'll storm the gates and then Bb Ab Bb Eb5 Absus2 Just watch what happens when they do. Verse 2: Bb7 Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic- Eb Bb7 Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a- Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm7 F7 Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion. Bb7 So, he's a flirt, a complete ego maniac. Eb The fact is he's also the face of the strike- Bb7 What a face- face the fact, Eb Cm Ab Gm Cm Am That's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean. D7 Like someone said, "Power tends to corrupt" G And Absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!? D7 Absolutely, that is genius! G Em C Bm Em7 But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never. D7 Just look around at the world we're inheriting G And think of the one we'll create. F7 Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making. Bb7 Bb7 No sir, we'll stay young forever! Chorus: Eb Bb7 Ab Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens. Absus2 Bb Eb Bb7 It's David and Goliath, do or die! The fight is on, Ab And I can't watch what happens. Absus2 Bb Cm Db But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in. Cm Db It can't be any worse than how it's been. Outro: Eb5 Eb5 Eb5 Ab And it just so happens that we just might win, Abm Bb7 So whatever happens! Eb5 Fm7 Bb7 Eb Let's begin!
