Em                               C           D
When I Was Young, It Seemed That Life Was So Wonderful,
D                    Am         A
a Miracle, Oh It Was Beautiful, Magical.
A           Em                                 C          D
And All The Birds In The Trees, Well They'd Be Singing So Happily,
D         Am        A
Joyfully, Playfully Watching Me.
A             Em                       C         D
But Then They Send Me Away To Teach Me How To Be Sensible,
D        Am           A
Logical, Responsible, Practical.
A        Em                              C     D  
And They Showed Me a World Where I Could Be So Dependable,
D         Am            A
Clinical, Intellectual, Cynical.


A         Em                           C 
There Are Times When All The World's Asleep,
C                     G
The Questions Run Too Deep
G                 D
For Such a Simple Man.
D         Em                                C
Won't You Please, Please Tell Me What We've Learned
C                G
I Know It Sounds Absurd
G                        D
But Please Tell Me Who I am.


D   Em                               C             D
Now Watch What You Say Or They'll Be Calling You a Radical,
D        Am         A
Liberal, Fanatical, Criminal.
A         Em                              C
Won't You Sign Up Your Name, We'd Like To Feel You're
D                       Am             A
Acceptable, Respecable, Presentable, a Vegtable!


   Em                            C
At Night, When All The World's Asleep,
C                    G
The Questions Run So Deep
G                 D
For Such A Simple Man.
D         Em                                C
Won't You Please, Please Tell Me What We've Learned
C                  G
I Know It Sounds Absurd
G                        D
But Please Tell Me Who I am.
