    C                G          C (2)

      Oh, it's a mystery to me

                        C              F                     G (2)   

    We have a greed with which we have agreed

                    F                        G                          Am (2)

    And you think you have to want more than you need

         F                  G                   Am (4)

    Until you have it all you won't be free

     

          F (2)                          C (2)                             G (2)                Am (4)

    Society, you're a crazy breed   Hope you're not lonely without me

     

                       C                           G                         C (2)

    When you want more than you have you think you need

                            C                             F                             G (2)

    And when you think more than you want your thoughts begin to bleed

        F                     G             Am (2)

    I think I need to find a bigger place

                                  F                            G                         Am (4)

    ‘Cause when you have more than you think you need more space

     

          F (2)                          C (2)                             G (2)                Am (2)

    Society, you're a crazy breed   Hope you're not lonely without me

        F (2)          C (2)                                  G (2)               Am (4)

    Society, crazy indeed    Hope you're not lonely without me

                  C                    G               C (2)

    There's those thinking more-or-less, less is more

              C                 F                        G (2)

    But if less is more, how you keeping score?

                    F                      G                       Am (2)

    Means for every point you make, your level drops

    F                             G                     Am (4)

        Kinda like you're starting from the top, you can't do that

     

          F (2)                          C (2)                             G (2)                Am (2)

    Society, you're a crazy breed   Hope you're not lonely without me

           F (2)              C (2)                                G (2)                  Am (2)

    Society, crazy indeed    Hope you're not lonely without me

                              

            F (2)                    C (2)

    Society, have mercy on me

                             G (2)                 Am (2)

    Hope you're not angry if I disagree

            F (2)             C (2)

    Society, crazy indeed

                            G (4)               Am (6)

    Hope you're not lonely without me

     

    End on C
