Song:

VERSE 1 (Plucking, finger-picking, and light strumming)

 Em
It takes a crane to build a crane
 Am
It takes two floors to make a story
 C
                                    
It takes an egg to make a hen
 C
It takes a hen to make an egg
 GBm
There is no end to what I'm saying      

 Em
It takes a thought to make a word
 Am
And it takes some word to make an action
 C
And It takes some work to make it work
 C
It takes some good to make it hurt
 GBm
It takes some bad for satisfaction      

CHORUS (Plucking, finger-picking, and light strumming)

 EmAm
 La la la la la la la life is wonderful
 F#
                                         -( optional transition into the Em chord)
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
 EmAm
 Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
 D
 Al la la la la

VERSE 2 (Strumming)

 Em
It takes a night to make it dawn
 Am
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother
 C
It takes some old to make you young
 C
It takes some cold to know the sun
 GB
It takes the one to have the other    

(-----This is where the drums would come in------)


 Em
And It takes no time to fall in love
 Am
But it takes you years to know what love is
 C
And It takes some fears to make you trust
 C
It takes those tears to make it rust
 GB
It takes the dust to have it polished   


CHORUS 2

 EmAm
 Ha la la la la la la life is wonderful
 F#
D                    G                      ( - optional)
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
 EmAm
 Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
 DEm
                                 (keep playing this chord until next verse)
Ah la la la la la la life is so...

BRIDGE

Just keep playing variations of that Em chord (that you just ended on - from Chorus 2)


VERSE 3

 Em
It takes some silence to make sound
 Am
And It takes a loss before you found it
 C
And It takes a road to go nowhere
 C
It takes a toll to make you care
 GB
It takes a hole to make a mountain   


CHORUS 3

 EmAm
 Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
 DGF#

Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle

Ah la la la la la la love is meaningful
 EmAm
 Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
 DD
 Ah la la la la la la...
 Em
It is so wonderful
Em (like the Bridge - just keep playing this chord until the end)
It is so meaningful
 Em
 It is so wonderful
 Em
 It is meaningful
 Em
 It is wonderful
 Em
 And meaningful
 Em
 It goes full circle
 Em
 Wonderful
 Em
 Meaningful
 Em
 Full Circle
 Em
 Wonderful
...
