D
I don't know what the world may need
        G
But I'm sure as hell that it starts with me
             C      G     D
and that's a wisdom, I've laughed at
D
I don't know what the world may want
      G
but a good stiff drink it surely don't
     C                 G            D
so I think I'll go and fix myself a tall one.

                D
'Cause what the world needs now
     G
is a new, kind, attention
           C            G           D
'cause the old one just bores me to death.

'Cause what the world needs now
    G           G
is another folk singer
     C        G          D
like I need a hole in my head.

I don't know what the world may need
but a V-8 engine's a good start for me
think I'll drive and find a place to be surly.
I don't know what the world may want
but some words of wisdom could comfort us
think I'll leave that up to someone wiser.

'Cause what the world needs now
are some true world of wisdom
like la la la la la la la la la.
'Cause what the world needs now
is another folk singer
like I need a hole in my head.

...Solo x2...

I don't know what the world may need
and a leather dress ?????????
I'd be happy just to get your attention
I don't know what the world may want
but your long sweet body lying next to mine
could certainly...raise my spirits.

'Cause what the world needs now
is a new Frank Sinatra
so I can get you in bed.
What the world needs now
is another folk singer
like I need a hole in my head.

.Repeat...

One of my favorite songs of all time, thanks a lot for posting this, sounds good.

Oh, lyrics are off though in a couple places:

In second verse, "new kind attention" is "new kind of tension" and after the solo, the part about leather dress is actually something like, "I may never know your complexities." The verb tense may be off (it may be "I'll never know your complexities" or something else like that).
