Em          D                  C
Sing it out, Boy you've got to see what tomorrow brings
Em          D                   C
Sing it out, Girl you've got to be what tomorrow needs
Em        D              C
For every time that they want to count you out
Em       D           Am              C            G
Use your voice every single time you open up your mouth

Chorus
G               D                     Em
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
                    C                       G
Every time that you lose it sing it for the world
G                D
Sing it from the heart
                    Em
Sing it 'til you're nuts
                    C                      G
Sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts
G               D
Sing it for the deaf
                Em
Sing it for the blind
                C                   Am
Sing about everyone that you left behind
                D                      Em
Sing it for the world, sing it for the world


Em          D                  C
Sing it out, Boy they're gonna sell what tomorrow means
Em          D                 C
Sing it out, Girl before they kill what tomorrow brings
               Em     D             C
You've got to, make a choice if the music drowns you out
Em         D           Am               C                 G
Raise your voice every single time they try and shut your mouth


Chorus
G               D                     Em
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
                    C                       G
Every time that you lose it sing it for the world
G                D
Sing it from the heart
                    Em
Sing it 'til you're nuts
                    C                      G
Sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts
G               D
Sing it for the deaf
                Em
Sing it for the blind
                C                   Am
Sing about everyone that you left behind
                D                      Em
Sing it for the world, sing it for the world

Bridge
Em                      C
Cleaned up, corporation progress
             Em    
Dying in the process
                  C
Children that can talk about it
              Em
Living on the railways
              C
People moving sideways
                  Em
Sell it 'til your last days
                 C
Buy yourself the motivation
           Em
Generation nothing,
              C
Nothing but a dead scene
             Em
Product of a white dream
             C                             Em
I am not the singer that you wanted, but a dancer
            C                      Em
I refuse to answer, talk about the past
                    C                     Em
And rooting for the ones that want to get away.



Keep running



Chorus
G               D                     Em
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
                    C                       G
Every time that you lose it sing it for the world
G                D
Sing it from the heart
                    Em
Sing it 'til you're nuts
                    C                      G
Sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts
G               D
Sing it for the deaf
                Em
Sing it for the blind
                C                   Am
Sing about everyone that you left behind
                D                      Em
Sing it for the world, sing it for the world


- Em -         Em                C
We've got to see what tomorrow brings

Sing it for the world
                G
Sing it for the world
                 Em               C
Yeah, you got to be what tomorrow needs
                D
Sing it for the world
                Em
Sing it for the world

  9. lizzywithauke

    This chord sequence works better for the chorus:

    G D Em

    C
    time that you lose it sing it for the world

  10. daphpunks

    This is actually my favorite song to play on ukulele. Love it <3

  11. love MCR and this song sounds great with it but a bit too repetitive

  12. I would have never thought that ukulele would sound good with mcr

    • Panicking Falling Chemical Pilots

      I know! Right?? I never thought it would’ve sounded so good especially with this song! But if you want to hear a really cool MCR song with the ukulele, I’m Not Okay (I Promise) sound AMAZING with a uke too@

  13. I agree with Blackfire, that lyric is messed up, but the ukulele sounds great with the song!

    • Actually, in the song it says “sing about everyone that you left behind” but okay… Not trying to be offensive by the way, I’ve just known the lyrics to that song for years and can confirm that they wrote it correctly the way it is.

  14. cupcakeukulele

    If you replace Em with F it sounds pretty similar and kind of easier.

    • TaxiCabHometown

      I love Em soooo much, and I found that the G *NOT THE G NOTE, MY FELLOW MCR FRENS* sounds a lot like Em, but thanks for the tip!

  15. well just a lyric mess up, you see where it says sing about everyone that you left behind? Well it’s suppose to be sing it out for the ones that you left behind.

    • actually, it’s not. everywhere you look and in the song itself it’s very clearly “about everyone…”
