Hand in My Pocket

Alanis Morissette


G

I'm broke but I'm happy


I'm poor but I'm kind


I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah


I'm high but I'm grounded


I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed


I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

                          G/F

What it all comes down to

G/C                                   G
Is that everthing's gonna be fine fine fine

And the other one is giving a high five

G
I feel drunk but I'm sober


I'm young and I'm underpaid


I'm tired but I'm working, yeah


I care but I'm restless


I'm here but I'm really gone


I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

                          G/F
What it all comes down to

G/C                                      G
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright

            G/F
I've got one hand in my pocket

            G/C             Dsus4                      G
And the other one is giving the peace sign

G

I'm free but I'm focused


I'm green but I'm wise


I'm hard but I'm friendly baby


I'm sad but I'm laughing


I'm brave but I'm chicken shit


I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

                          G/F
What it all boils down to

G/C                                              G
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet

             G/F
I've got one hand in my pocket

            G/C             Dsus4               G
And the other one is playing the piano

                          G/F
What it all comes down to my friends

G/C                             G
Is that everything's just fine fine fine

             G/F
I've got one hand in my pocket

            G/C             Dsus4          G
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab
