Tuning = Standard



VERSE 1
********
Am                                 D
Looking like something from out of space we came
Bm              Bb              C  
Nothing much to look at but did he complain
   E                            Am                D
He didn't mind us being here to live in peace and grace
F                           E 
What we're doing to him now could put us back in space


----------------------
VERSE 2
********
      Am                                   D
We're thinking like some creatures off the ocean floor
Bm              Bb                C
Losing sight of what we've really come here for
    E                              Am            D
Can I be heard above the sounds of prejudice and hate
F                        E                  C
Take time to look around before it gets too late


----------------------
CHORUS
*******
       Am C      D
It's a happy old world
G                 C#m
Give and take a bit that's what you make of it
  Am G      F#m  D
A happy old world
G                   E
But I'm sorry to be leaving it

       Am G      D
It's a happy old world
G                   E
Give and take a bit that's what you make of it
  Am        D
A happy old world
G                                         D
  But I guess I still, I still believe in it
E                  F#m   C#m
  It's a happy old world


----------------------
VERSE 3
********
      Am                          D
We're tearing up the rivers and a thousand streams
    Bm                   Bb                   C
And highways, they're in places where they've never been
      E                              Am             D
We're building towers in the sky and racing for the sun
   F                 E
Oh Lord, any eye can see what harm we've done


----------------------
VERSE 4
********
Am                           D
Need some help to get myself out of this maze
Bm               Bb              C
We can both just say goodbye and go our separate ways
   E                                  Am                 D
My mind's not on this song I sing, my heart's not in the lines
F                                             E
  Guess I'll go and kill myself, so would you kindly close the blinds


----------------------
CHORUS
*******
       Am C      D
It's a happy old world
G                 C#m
Give and take a bit that's what you make of it
  Am G      F#m  D
A happy old world
G                   E
But I'm sorry to be leaving it

       Am G      D
It's a happy old world
G                   E
Give and take a bit that's what you make of it
  Am        D
A happy old world
G                              D
  But I guess, guess I still believe in it
E                  F#m   C#m
  It's a happy old world
