| Cmaj7 | Dm9 | % | % | 
| Cmaj7 | Dm9 | % | % | 


VERSE
Cmaj7                Dm9
Hang out the flags a new world order's on the way
Cmaj7               Dm9
Start singing now a song to greet the joyful day


BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Just when we thought the time was right for celebrating
Dm9
  With music of the spheres
Fmaj7
  What's this - another boat of fleeing refugees on
Dm9
  A sea of children's tears


CHORUS
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth


VERSE
Cmaj7              Dm9
We're only men and women doing what we can
Cmaj7                    Dm9
  Sometimes I think that God is working to a plan


BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Then other times I swear that he is improvising
Dm9
  Discordant and remote
Fmaj7
  Another orphan baby in failed uprising
Dm9
  Another real bum note


CHORUS
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth


MIDDLE 8
Cmaj7           Dm7
  And if you're listening up there
Cmaj7          Dm7
  You could consider this a prayer



BRIDGE
G/A  Fmaj7
       Well who am I to tell you how to run your business
Dm9
  Man, you could strike me blind
Fmaj7
  What kind of noise we gotta make down here before we
Dm9
  Destroy your peace of mind


CHORUS (outro)
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth

G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
