[C]A million poets
[G]Screamin' out their words
To a [C]world full of people
Just [G]livin' to be heard
[C]Future generations
Ridin' on the [G]highways that we built
I [F]hope they have better [G]understanding

Check it [C]out
Goin' to work on [G]Monday
Check it [C]out
Got yourself a [G]family
Check it [C]out
All utility b[G]ills have been paid
You [F]can't tell your best buddy that you [G]love him
So check it [C]out
Where does our [G]time go
Check it [C]out
Got a brand new house in [G]escrow
Check it [C]out
Sleepin' with your back [G]to your loved one
This is [F]all that we've learned about [G]happiness


Intro


Check it [C]out
Forgot to say hello to my [G]neighbors
c
Check it out
Sometimes I question my own [G]behavior
Check it [C]out
Talkin' about the girls [G]that we've seen on the sly
Just to [F]tell our souls that we're still the [G]young lions
So check it [C]out
Gettin' too drunk on [G]Saturdays
Check it [C]out
Playin football with the kids on [G]Sundays
Check it [C]out
Soarin' with eagles [G]all week long
And this is [F]all that we've learned about [G]living
This is [F]all that we've learned about [G]living


Lead Guitar (nearly the same as the intro, but with the change noted)
