I know your game; what you're about.

           Bm7               C#m7
Well, they say the sky's the limit,
       Bm7              C#m7
And to me that's really true.

Just wait 'till I get through...

The word is out; you're doin' wrong.
      Am7         D7  Am7           D7
Gonna lock you up, be-fore too long.
     Am7        D7     Am7            D7
Your lyin' eyes, gonna tell you right;
   Am7       D7     Am7          D7
So listen up; don't make a fight.
     Am7           D7      Am7       D7
Your talk is cheap; you're not a man.
       Am7             D7  Am7             D7
You're throwin' stones, to hide your hands.

7...MAN IN THE MIRROR... by Michael Jackson
------------------------...................

*from 'Bad' (1987)*


Verse 1:

G          D/F#          Em7  D/F#       Cadd9
 I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life.
           G         D/F#               Em7               D/F#    Cadd9
It's gonna feel real good; gonna make a difference, gonna make it right.

Verse 2:

     G           D/F#      Em            D/F#
As I turn up the collar on, my favourite winter coat,
Cadd9
 This wind is blowing my mind.
	  G           D/F#                Em7          D/F#
I see the kids in the streets, with not e-nough to eat,
       Cadd9
Who am I to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs.

Bridge 1:

Am7                  Dsus4
 A summer disregard, a broken bottle top,
Cadd9            Dsus
 And a one man's soul.
Am7                            Dsus4
 They follow each other on the wind, ya' know,
          C              C/D
'Cos they got nowhere to go; that's why I want you to know;

Chorus 1:

G    GaddA/B           Cadd9      C/D
 I'm starting with the man in the mirror;
G    GaddA/B       Cadd9      C/D
 I'm asking him to change his ways.
G       GaddA/B             C        C#dim
 And no message, could have been any clearer;
       D7#9
If you wanna make the world a better place,
                                 G
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

Interlude:

G  D/F#	 Em         D/F#                C/D  D  Em7  D/F#
          Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah.

Verse 2:

G            D/F#      Em         D/F#
 I've been a victim of, a selfish kind of love,
Cadd9
 It's time that I realise;
               G            D/F#        Em7            D/F#
That there are some with no home; not a nickel to loan,
C                           C/D
 Could it be really me, pre-tending they're not alone?

Bridge 2:

Am7                       Dsus4
 A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart,
Cadd9             Dsus4
 And a washed out dream.
     Am7                       Dsus4
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see,
          Cadd9           C/D
'Cos they got no place to be; that's why I'm starting with me.

Chorus 2:

G    GaddA/B           Cadd9      C/D
 I'm starting with the man in the mirror;
G    GaddA/B       Cadd9      C/D
 I'm asking him to change his ways.
G       GaddA/B             C        C#dim

I've been here times before, but I was too blind to see,
            Em                            C            D
That you se-duce every man; this time you won't seduce me.

              Em                   C           D

She likes the boys in the band; she knows when they come to town,
         Em                     C             D
Every musician's fan, after the curtain comes down.
             Em                             C         D

            Em                              C       D
Who promise fortune and fame; a life that's so care-free.

I'll be your night lovin' thing, I'll be the freak you can taunt.
            Em                           C      D
And I don't care what you say; I want to go too far,

I said my baby's at home; she's probably worried to-night,
         Em                             C      D
I didn't call on the phone, to say that I'm al-right.

      Em                             C            D
Diana walked up to me, she said; I'm all yours to-night,
          Em                        C            D
At that I ran to the phone, sayin'; baby, I'm al-right.

 No ex-cuses to make.

 All is going my way.

 You really hurt; you used to take and de-ceive me,

 Now who is sorry now?

 You got a way of making me feel so sorry,

 I found out right a-way.
