D
I’ve got a sheet for my bed and a pillow for my head; 
I’ve got a pencil full of lead; and some water for my throat 
         G
I’ve got buttons for my coat; and sails on my boat
D 
So much more than I needed before 
      A                        G
I got money in the meter and a two bar heater
D 
Now it’s getting hotter; Oh it’s only getting sweeter 
I got legs on my chair and a head full of hair 
Pot and a pan And some shoes on my feet; 
        G                       D
I got a shelf full of books and most of my teeth 
A few pairs of socks and a door with a lock; 
       A                     G
I got food in my belly and a license for my telly
    D 
And nothing’s gonna bring me down 

- musical Solo – D, G, D, A, G, D -

D
I got a nice guitar and tyres on my car 
I got most of the means; and scripts for the scenes 
    G
I’m out and about, so I’m in with a shout 
        D
I got a fair bit of chat but better than that
A                      G 
Food in my belly and a license for my telly 
    D
and nothing's going to bring me down 

- musical Solo – D, G, D, A, G, D -

Nothing's gonna bring me down

D
But best of all - best of all - I’ve got my baby 
G
But best of all - best of all - 
            D
I’ve got my baby
      A                    G
She’s mighty fine and says she’s all mine 
    D
And nothing’s going to bring me down 

- musical Solo – D, G, D, A, G, D -

D
But best of all - best of all - I’ve got my baby 
G
But best of all - best of all - 
            D
I’ve got my baby
      A                    G
She’s mighty fine and says she’s all mine
