chords: 
D7 x-5-4-5-x-x-|
E7 x-7-6-7-x-x-|


intro
The bands I like, they don't sell too many records
And the girls I like, they don't kiss too many boys
Books I read will never be best sellers, yeah
But come on fellas at least we made our choice, hey!

A,E,D


What do we want?   E
D
And when do we want it?
A                E                          D
And how would we feel if we knew that we were never gunna get it?
A            E
And where did we start from?
D
And where are we going?
A               E                             D
Can anyone here say with any certainty that they know what they're doing?

E                                               D
Ever feel like an awkward understudy thrown into a cast where you just don't get along
E                                             D
Crowd and the crew all standing silent staring and you can't shake the feeling that 
somehow you're doing it wrong

A,E,D
What do we want?

A,E          D
Mum and dad always seem like that had a plan
A                E                            D
Everything fell apart when mum moved on, now dad's a broken man
A      E                    D
And all these decisions that keep getting made
A              E                      D
I can't remember making them and nobody wants to explain

E                                                     D
We're all awkward understudies wearing comfortable shoes getting comfortable with doing it wrong
E                                                         D
Missed the dress rehearsals and we had to rush a drink before the show but now it's show 
time and we're singing our song!

A
Because the bands I like, they don't sell too many records
E                          D
And the girls I like, they don't kiss too many boys
A
Books I read will never be best sellers, yeah
E                       D
But come on fellas at least we made our choice

A
The bands I like, they don't sell too many records

A
Books I read will never be best sellers, yeah
E                              D
But come on fellas at least we made our  choice

E                                     A
Be a fan of every band who ever made you want to move your feet
E                      A                   D                   B
Fall along with every person who ever made your heart want to skip a beat
C7
So come on, come on, come on!
D7
What do we want?

We shall not overcome!
A,E,D
We shall not go well!
A,E,D
Hey, hey!
A,E
Because the lives we lead, they will be so very perfect
D
And the plans we make made us serve some kind of purpose
A,E
But the hearts we meet still beat the way they used to
D
If you're doing it wrong, well yeah what you gunna do?
A,E,D
What do we want?

The chords progression in the Bridge isn't working for me. the C7 is definitely not the chord over "so come on, come on, come on!"

Also, the tag at the end, the climax of the song...is not "We shall not got well!" It's:

We shall not overcome!
WE SHALL OVERWHELM!
