#Verse 1:
[D]You see the world through your c[C/Dbass]ynical eyes
You're a t[D]roubled young man I can [C/Dbass]tell
[D]You've got it all in the pa[C/Dbass]lm of your hand
          B-              C/B-bass      B-          C/B-bass

But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest
You're f[D/Abass]oolin' yourself if you don't [G/Abass]believe it
You're k[D/Abass]idding yourself if you don't [Em7/Abass]believe it

Verse 2:
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me
How can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man
You're foolin' yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it

Chorus:
Get u[D]p, get [Dsus4]back o[D]n [Dsus4]your f[D]eet
You're the o[Dsus4]ne the[D]y [Dsus4]can't [D]beat and you k[C]now it
Come [D]on, let's[Dsus4] see w[D]hat [Dsus4]you've g[D]ot
Just t[Dsus4]ake yo[D]ur b[Dsus4]est sh[D]ot and don't b[C]low it
Oh....[G]   [B-]Oh..[C]...[Gm7]     [C]

Middle Section/Solo

You're foolin' yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on, let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it.
