Vers: Em7 D/F# G A
Bridge 1/chorus: G A Bm7 D
Intro: Em7, D/F#, G, A
Vers 1:
[Em7] Whatever [D/F#]happened to the funky r[G]ace?
A generation l[A]ost in pace,[Em7]
Wasn´t life su[D/F#]pposed to be more than this?[G]
In this kiss I´ll [A]change your bore for my bliss[Em7]
Let go of my hand and it will[D/F#] slip out in the sand if you don´t [G]give me the chance
to break d[A]own the walls of attitude,[Em7]
I ask n[D/F#]othing of you
[G] not even your [A]gratitude
Bridge 1:
And [G]if you think I´m corny
then it [A]will not make me sorry
it´s your [Bm7]right to laugh at me[D]
and in turn, that´s[G] my oppurtunity[A]
to feel brave[Bm7] [D]
Because [G]ridicule is no shame [A]
it´s just a[Bm7] way to eclipse hate[D]
it´s just a[G] way to put my back straight[A]
it´s just a[Bm7] way to remain sa[D]ne
Vers 2:
[Em7]Every morning I would see her g[D/F#]etting
off the bus the pic[G]ture never drops
it's like a mu[A]lticoloured snapshot s[Em7]tuck in my brain
it [D/F#]kept me sane for a co[G]uple of years
as it d[A]renched my fears
of be[Em7]coming like the others
who be[D/F#]come unhappy mothers
and f[G]athers of unhappy kids[A]
And why is that?
Bridge 1:
Cause they´ve fo[G]rgotten how to play[A]
maybe they´re [Bm7]afraid to feel ashamed[D]
to seem strange[G]
to seem insane[A]
to gain weight to seem [Bm7]gay
I tell you this [D]
That it takes a f[G]ool to remain sane[A]
It takes a f[Bm7]ool to remain sane[D]
It takes a f[G]ool to remain sane[A]
In this w[Bm7]orld all covered up in shame[D]
G A E Dadd9 x2
(-Oh, take it to the stage!)
