C             F                            G     
  Where is the moment when we need it the most?____ 
C                   F                      G     
  You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost.___
Am                    G                    F 
  They tell me your blue skies fade to grey.____
                  C               Dm 
They tell me your passion's gone away,___
                              G     
and I don't need no carrying on.____ 

C                   F                      G     
  You stand in the line just ahead of the law.____
C                  F                        G     
  You're faking a smile with the coffee to go.____ 
Am                  G                   F 
  You tell me your life's been way off line.___ 
                   C           Dm 
You're falling to pieces every time,____ 
                             G 
and I don't need no carrying on.______ 

Chorus: 
                     C
`Cause you had a bad day, 
                   F 
you're taking one down, 
                Dm                    G
you sing a sad song just to turn it around.____ 
                    C 
You say you don't know, 
                   F
you tell me don't lie,
                Dm                    G 
you work at a smile and you go for a ride.____ 
               Am 
You had a bad day,
                  G
the camera don't lie,
                    F                         C
you're coming back down and you really don't mind.

Well you need a blue sky holiday.____
                   C                 Dm
The point is they laugh at what you say,___ 
                             G 
and I don't need no carrying on._____
