Burning Sky  The Jam

[D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] 
H[D]ow are things in yo[Bm]ur little world, I ho[G]pe they're going well and yo[A]u
are too
D[D]o you still see the s[Bm]ame old crowd, the o[G]nes who used to meet e[A]very
I[D]'m really sorry that I c[Bm]an't be there
But wo[G]rk comes first I'm sure you'll un[A]derstand
Th[D]ings are really taking o[Bm]ff for me
Bu[G]siness is thriving and I'm sh[A]owing a profit an[Bm]d
[Bm]And in a[A]ny ca[D]se,[Bm] it wouldn't [A]be the s[D]ame
Cause we've [Bm]all grown [D]up and we've g[Bm]ot our own li[D]ves
And the v[Bm]alues that we h[D]ad once u[Bm]pon a t[D]ime
Seem st[Bm]upid now 'cause the re[A]nt must be paid
And s[Bm]ome bonds severed and o[A]thers made[Bm] [A] [D]
[Bm]Dit dit dit dit di[A]t do[D] n do di[Bm]t dit dit dit di[A]t d[D]o n do
[D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] 
N[D]ow I don't want you to g[Bm]et me wrong, id[G]eals are fine when y[A]ou are young
[D] [Bm] [G] [A] 
[Bm]And I must admit we had a laugh, but that's all it was and ever will be cos
[Bm]Cos the bu[A]rning s[D]ky k[Bm]eeps a burn[A]ing br[D]ight
And as l[Bm]ong as it do[D]es, and it al[Bm]ways wi[D]ll
There's no t[Bm]ime for dre[D]ams when com[Bm]merce c[D]alls
And the ta[Bm]xman's shouting 'cause he wa[A]nts his dough
And the w[Bm]heels of finance won't be[A]gin to slow[Bm] [A] [D]
[Bm]Dit dit dit dit di[A]t do[D] n do d[Bm]it dit dit dit dit[A] do [D]n do
[Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] 
[Bm]Dit [A]dit[D] dit dit di do dit dit dit di do, dit dit dit dit di do dit dit
dit di do
And it's o[Bm]nly us realists who are g[A]onna come through
Cause there's o[Bm]nly one power higher than t[A]hat of truth
[Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] [D] [Bm] [A] 
[D]An[Bm]d t[A]hat's the burning sky, it's the burning sky
Oh and by the way I must tell you, before I sign off I've got a meeting
next week
With the head of a big corporate
I can't disclose who but I'm sure you all know him and
And the burning sky keeps a burning bright
And it won't turn off til it's had enough
It's the greedy bastard who won't give up
And you're just a dreamer if you don't realise
And the sooner you do will be the better for you
And then we'll all be happy and we'll all be wise
And we'll all bow down to the burning sky
Dit dit dit dit dit do n do, dit dit dit dit do n do
Dit dit dit dit di do dit dit dit di do, dit dit dit dit di do dit dit
dit di do
Then we'll all be happy and we'll all be wise
And together we will live beneath the burning sky
