E               E+
Poor people are poor people
    E6              E7
And they don't understand
  Amaj7             F#m7
A man's got to make whatever he wants
    Amaj7                B7
And take it with his own hands
E           E+
Poor people stay poor people
    E6                E7
And they never get to see
 Amaj7                     F#m7
Someone's got to win in the human race
      Amaj7              B7
If it isn't you, then it has to be me
   Amaj7              Emaj7
So smile while you're makin' it
Amaj7              Emaj7
Laugh while you're takin' it
Amaj7              Emaj7
Even though you're fakin' it
 A       B7    E (fill- see below)
Nobody's gonna know
A        B7    E
Nobody's gonna know


E
No use mumbling
     E+
It's no use grumbling
E6              E7
Life just isn't fair
       Amaj7
There's no easy days
       F#m7
There's no easy ways
     Amaj7             B7
Just get out there and do it
    Amaj7            Emaj7
And sing and they'll sing your song
Amaj7              Emaj7
Laugh while you're getting on
Amaj7             Emaj7
Smile and they'll string along
    A        B7    E
And nobody's gonna know
A        B7    E
Nobody's gonna know
A        B7    E
Nobody's gonna know
    A        B7    E
And nobody's gonna know

Emaj7   Amaj7     Emaj7   Amaj7  Emaj7
