 But there's one thing
           G     Am
They can't take away
C
 Hear the sea sing
      G       Am
See a smiling face
C
 I think we're OK
              G        Am
Though we all could be mad
C
 That's what they say
              Am     D [LINK 1: see above]
We just can't all be bad


*G     G/B              G/E      G/D
 I got something now to think about

Keep on working
G    G  Am Am

 And there's another whirl
           G    Am
They can't ever touch
C
 Just need a boy and girl
         G        Am
It don't cost you much
C
 And if your luck is in
               G       Am
You might have kids at play
C
 To make you laugh and sing
            Am      D [LINK 1: see above]
