Feel free to transpose three half steps down to change the chords to a bit easier ones (Gm7->Em7..)

In this case capo should of course be on the third fret to match the record.


INTRO/VERSE:

Guitar:  |Gm7  |F/A  |Bb   |C      |   (intro and first verse
Bass:    |G    |A    |Bb   |C      | *
String:  |F    |     |     |G      | *
Piano:   |     |     |     |   D E |F *

* means notes

Chorus:
Bb C Dm7 F (4x)


Gm       F/A
Whatever happened to the funky race? 
Bb            C
A generation lost in pace, 
Gm               F/A                    
-Wasn´t life supposed to be more than this? 
Bb                  C
In this kiss I´ll change your bore for my bliss 
Gm                                 F/A                               Bb
But let go of my hand and it will slip out in the sand if you don´t give me the chance 
          C
to break down the walls of attitude, 
Gm      F/A
I ask nothing of you 
Bb              C
not even your gratitude 

    Bb
And if you think I´m corny 
     C
then it will not make me sorry 
          Dm7                  F
it´s your right to laugh at me 
                    Bb           C
and in turn, that´s my opportunity 
         Dm7   F
to feel brave 


           Bb          C
Because ridicule is no shame 
            Dm7              F
Oh, it's just a way to eclipse hate
            Bb             C
It's just a way to put my back straight
         Dm7                       F
Oh, it's just a way to remain sane


Gm                             F/A                     Bb
Every morning I would see her getting off the bus the picture never drops 
             C                      Gm
it´s like a multicoloured snapshot stuck in my brain 
    F/A                Bb
it kept me sane for a couple of years 
        C
as it drenched my fears 
     Gm 
of becoming like the others 
       F/A
who become unhappy mothers 
     Bb                 C
and fathers of unhappy kids
 
And why is that? 

                  Bb                 C
'Cause they´ve forgotten how to play 
                 Dm7                 F
maybe they´re afraid to feel ashamed 
         Bb
to seem strange 
           C
to seem insane
         Dm7 
to seem gay 
           F
to gain weight 
- I tell you this: 

                 Bb             C
That it takes a fool to remain sane 
            Dm7              F
It takes a fool to remain sane
            Bb             C
It takes a fool to remain sane
         Dm7                        F 
In this world all covered up in shame 
(-Oh, take it to the stage!) 

     Gm                       F/A                           Bb
So, take it to the stage in a multicoloured jacket take it jackpot, crackpot, 
    C
strutting like a peacock 
Gm
nailvarnish Arkansas 
 F/A                         Bb
shimmy-shammy featherboah crackpot haircut 
          C
dye your hair in glowing red and blue, 
 Bb         C                   Dm7                     F
-Do, Do, Do! What you wanna do, Don´t think twice, do what you have to do, 
Bb         C                     Dm7                 F
Do, Do, Do, let your heart decide what you have to do that´s all there is to find 

                  Bb             C
Cause it takes a fool to remain sane, 
               Dm7              F
Oh,It takes a fool to remain sane 
            Bb             C
It takes a fool to remain sane
         Dm7                        F 
In this world all covered up in shame
            Bb             C 
It takes a fool to remain sane, 
            Dm7               F
It takes a fool to remain sane 
            Bb             C
It takes a fool to remain sane 
         Dm7                        F
In this world all covered up in shame
