[Verse 1]
Dm7             Gm7             Dm7       Gm7
Wake up every - body, no more sleeping in bed,
Dm7                  Gm7               C7sus2
 No more backwards thinking, time for thinking ahead,
     Dm7                 Gm7            Dm7            Gm7
The world has changed so very much from what it used to be,
 Dm7              Gm7    C7sus2
There is so much hatred, war and poverty!
C13sus2            C7sus2
         Woh - oh, oh - oh!


[Verse 2]
Dm7               Gm7              Dm7        Gm7
Wake up all the teachers, time to teach a new way,
Dm7                 Gm7      C7sus2
Maybe then they'll listen to what you have to say,
 Dm7                     Gm7
They're the ones who's coming up,
        Dm7               Gm7
And the world is in their hands,
Dm7                  Gm7
When you teach the children,
              C7sus2
Teach 'em the very best you can!


[Chorus]

    The world won't get no bet - ter...

    The world won't get no bet -ter,
          Gm7

Wake up all the doctors, make the old people well,
 Dm7                  Gm7            C7sus2
They're the ones who suffer, and who catch all the hell,
 Dm7                Gm7           Dm7                 Gm7
They don't have so very long be - fore their Judgment Day,
 Dm7                 Gm7      C7sus2
Won't you make them happy be - fore they pass away?


[Verse 4]
Dm7              Gm7               Dm7        Gm7
Wake up all the builders, time to build a new land,
Dm7           Gm7           C7sus2
 I know we can do it, if we all lend a hand,
    Dm7           Gm7           Dm7                 Gm7
The only thing we have to do is put it in our minds-----,
 Dm7               Gm7            C7sus2
Surely things will work out?  They do it every time!
