[Intro]
 D5
(keyboard, freely)


[Verse 1]
                 Gmaj7
You can keep the good times
     A6
Righteousness
D                 Em9
 The best parting line
            Gmaj7
Rather then pretend we
    A6
Are A1
D      Em9
  Ultrafine
               Gmaj7
Shall I be the first then
   A6
To say what
D         Em9
  We have found
                         Gmaj7
There's something in our lifetime
      A6
Won't let us
D        Em9
  Settle down


[Chorus]
F#             Bm         G        Em
Darling it's a life of surprises
     F#              Bm       G        Em
It's no help growing older or wiser
    F#               Bm              G       Em
You don't have to pretend you're not crying
          F#          Bm              G      |  Em  |  %  |
When it's even in the way that you're walking          (Never ...)


[Verse 2]
               Gmaj7
Never let your conscience
   A6
Be harmful
D         Em9
  To your health
                Gmaj7
Let no neurotic impulse
     A6
Turn inward
D      Em9
  On itself
                       Gmaj7
Just say that you were happy
   A6
As happy
D         Em9
  Would allow
                   Gmaj7
And tell yourself that
     A6
Will have to
D        Em9
  Do for now


[Chorus]
F#             Bm         G        Em
Darling it's a life of surprises
     F#              Bm       G        Em
It's no help growing older or wiser
    F#               Bm              G       Em
You don't have to pretend you're not crying
          F#          Bm              G        |  Em  |  %  |
When it's even in the way that you're walking  -  Baby talking


[Bridge]
| A | % | % |
| G/A | % | % |

A                       A      | G/A |
Never say you're bitter   Jack
A                             A     |  G/A  |  G/A   F#  |
Bitter makes the worst things   come back


[Chorus]
[ F# ]           Bm         G        Em
  Darling it's a life of surprises
     F#              Bm       G        Em
It's no help growing older or wiser
    F#               Bm              G       Em
You don't have to pretend you're not crying
          F#          Bm              G        |  Em  |  %  |
When it's even in the way that you're walking  -  Baby talking


[Bridge]
| A | % | % |
| G/A | % | % |

A                       A      | G/A |
Never say you're bitter   Jack
A                             A     |  G/A  |  G/A   F#  |
Bitter makes the worst things   come back


[Chorus]
[ F# ]           Bm         G        Em
  Darling it's a life of surprises
     F#              Bm       G        Em
It's no help growing older or wiser
    F#               Bm              G       Em
You don't have to pretend you're not crying
          F#          Bm              G        Em
When it's even in the way that you're walking


[Chorus]
[ F# ]           Bm         G        Em
  Darling it's a life of surprises
     F#              Bm       G        Em
It's no help growing older or wiser
    F#               Bm              G       Em
You don't have to pretend you're not crying
          F#          Bm              G        Em
When it's even in the way that you're walking

[Outro]
F#             Bm     G         Em
Darling it's a life of surprises
F#             Bm     G         Em
Darling it's a life of surprises
F#             Bm     G         Em
Darling it's a life of surprises
