Look at the average person
Em7                     E7
Speak to the man in the street
A        D          A         /D   [ C ]
Can you imagine the first one you'd meet?

VERSE
          A                                  Dm  A
Well, I'm talking to a former engine driver (Dri-ver)
A                                 | A    Dm A |
Trying to find out what he used to do
Dm                                       Emadd11 Dm
Tells me that he always kept his engine (En   -  gine)
A
Spit and polished up as good as new
Em7                          E7
But he said his only great ambition
A                           Dmaj7
Was to work with lions in a zoo
A                           Dmaj7
Oh, to work with lions in a zoo

Dm   A    Bm7-5     A
Yes dear, you heard right
Dm            A             Bm        E            A
told me his ambition was to work with lions every night

VERSE
          A                                Dm  A
Well, I met a woman working as a waitress (Waitress)
  A                           | A    Dm A |
I asked exactly what it was she did
Dm                                            Emadd11 Dm
Said she worked the summer crowd at seasides (Sea  -  sides)
A
Winter time she ran away and hid
Em7                        E7
Once she had a Hollywood audition
A                           Dmaj7
But the part was given to a kid
A                            Dmaj7
Yes, the part was given to a kid

Dm   A    Bm7-5     A
Yes, Sir, you heard right
Dm          A             Bm      E           A
Hollywood ambition made a starlet grow up overnight

        A                                     Dm A
Well, I bumped into a man who'd been a boxer (Bo-xer)
A                                  | A    Dm A |
Asked him what had been his greatest night
   Dm                                     Emadd11 Dm
He looked into the corners of his mem’ry (Mem’  - ry)
A
Searching for a picture of a fight
Em7                         E7
But he said he always had a feeling
A                             Dmaj7
That he lacked a little extra height
 A                              Dmaj7
(Could have used a little extra height)
Dm  A     Bm7-5     A
Yes mate, you heard right
   Dm           A              Bm          E               A
He always had a feeling that he might have lacked a little height
