    Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me

    I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

             G              D           Am               C

    shape of an "L" on her forehead

     

      G                                 D

    You'll never shine if you don't glow

       G                        D

    It's a cool place and they say it gets colder

       Am                            C

    You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older

        G                    D

    But the media men beg to differ

                     Am                   C

    Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

     

                 G                     D

    The ice we skate is getting pretty thin

                        Am                        C

    The waters getting warm so you might as well swim

                   G               D

    My world's on fire how about yours

    I said yep what a concept I could use a little fuel myself

                 G          D       Am       C 

    And we could all use a little change

    So what's wrong with taking the back streets

            G                       D

    You'll never know if you don't go
