On October 28th, 2006, in a Saturday Night Live sketch right before Beck’s 
musical performance, Hugh Laurie performed an old song from his days with A
Bit of Fry and Laurie. 

Tuning: Standard F-F-F-F-E-F'
Harmonica Key : G

Original SNL Video : http://www.snotr.com/video/347
A Bit of Fry and Laurie Version : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rj4jDQrjBco

Note: The intro contains harmonica on the fourth and fifth bar.
      Laurie tends to do some hammer-ons at the optional (C).

Intro: | F  F | F  F | F  F | F  Am  F  F | F  Am  F  F | F  F | F  F |

  F                          Am              F                 F  (F)
Well, the poor keep getting hungry, and the rich keep getting fat
  F          Am                F                     F  (F)
Politicians change, but they're never gonna change that.
  F              Am               F                  F  (F)
Girl, we got the answer, it's so easy you won't believe
  Dm                 F
All we gotta do is.. [ mumbles incoherently ] 

Break: | F  F | F  F |

  F                             Am            F            F  (F)
Well, the winds of war are blowin', and the tide is comin' in
  F                            Am                    F                        F  (F)
Don't you be hopin' for the good times, because the good times have already been.
  F                      Am             F                 F  (F)
But, girl, we got the answer, it's so easy you won't believe
  Dm                 F
All we gotta do is.. [ mumbles incoherently ] 

  Am           Dm
It's so easy, to see
  Am                             F
If only they'd listen, to you and me.
  F          F                   F                 F
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] as fast as we can
  F          F                   F                    F
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] every woman, every man
  F          F                   F              F
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] time after time
  F          F                   F              F
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] vodka and lime.

Break: | F  F | F  F |

  F                         Am            F              F  (F)
Well, the world is gettin' weary, and it wants to go to bed
  F           Am               F                     F  (F)
Everybody's dyin', except the ones who are already dead.
  F                 Am       F                     F  (F)        
Girl, we got the answer, starin' us right in the face
  Dm
All we gotta do is
  Dm
All we gotta do is
  Dm
All we gotta do is.

[ pauses, then blows on the harmonica and finishes with outro ] 

Outro: | F  Am  F  F | F  Am  F  F | F  F |
