INTRO: (RIFF A, RIFF B, RIFF A)

VERSE
I was hungry when I said
I never got to sleep
You go ahead
You can get whatever you want

          *             `  
There's a feeling in my belly
It's the new tomorrow scene

        *           `
It's an interesting job
It's the fireworks

CHORUS
(RIFF C)
I don't need it (I don't need it)
I hit my head (he hit his head)
I can't feel anything
                        Em (RIFF D, bass)
You gave too much away
                G
You came to say
                       Em (RIFF D, bass)
It's a free world baby
                           G
And you gave too much away


*                `    (RIFF B)
get whatever you want
*                `    (RIFF B)     
get whatever you want


Me, I'm tired of this candy
My teeth ache my head
Boys in bed, girls in bed
All now go to sleep

*            `
Sleep, sweet dreams
Wake to a new today tomorrow

CHORUS
It's a free world baby 


*                `
get whatever you want
*                `
get whatever you want


Boys in bed, girls in bed
All now go to sleep
Sleep, sweet dreams
Wake to a new today tomorrow

*            `
Sleep, sweet dreams
*                   `
Wake to a new today tomorrow
