Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Mad Mad World  Michael Andrews

[F]All around are familiar[G#] faces
[D#]Worn out places worn out[Bb] places
Rising early for the daily races
Going nowhere going nowhere
The children filling up their classes
No expression no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow no tomorrow

[F]And I find it kind of funny     [A#]
I find it kind of sad     [F]
The dreams in which I?m dying             [A#]
Are the best dreams that I?ve had              [F]
I find it hard to tell yo[A#]u I find it hard to take            [F]
When people run in circles it?s a[A#] very, very mad world.  Mad world  [F]       [Bb]         [F]       [Bb]

Children waiting of the day they feel good
Happy birthday happy birthday
And I feel the way every child should
Sit and listen sit and listen
I went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what?s my lesson
Look right through me look right through me

And I find it kind of funny
I find if kind of say
The dreams in which I?m dying
Are the best dreams that I?ve had
I find it hard to tell you I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it?s a very, very mad world. Mad world

This song is from the movie Donnie Darko. Excellent movie and a very
good song. It is actually played on piano but this guitar works well
also. If you have any questions feel free to drop me a line at
