Intro: BB chord  EE chord  BB chord  EE chord  BB chord  EE chord

BB chord                           EE chord
Seven AM, the usual morning lineup
BB chord                                                  EE chord
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
CC chord                                       GG chord
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
       BB chord            EE chord              Gb7Gb7 chord       BB chord
Sweep again, and by then it's like seven fifteen


            EE chord      AA chord
And so I'll read a book
         GbmGbm chord     EE chord
Or maybe two or three
           DbmDbm chord      GbmGbm chord              AA chord    EE chord
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
          DbmDbm chord         GbmGbm chord
I'll play guitar and knit
             AA chord EE chord   DbmDbm chord
And cook and basically
            Gb7Gb7 chord           BB chord      EE chord             
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Interlude: BB chord  EE chord  BB chord  EE chord

BB chord                                           EE chord
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
BB chord                                EE chord
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
CC chord                                GG chord
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
          BB chord              EE chord              Gb7Gb7 chord
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
      BB chord
Sew a dress!


         EE chord           AA chord
And I'll re-read the books
          GbmGbm chord      EE chord
If I have time to spare
               DbmDbm chord         GbmGbm chord
I'll paint the walls some more
                 AA chord        EE chord
I'm sure there's room somewhere
              DbmDbm chord        GbmGbm chord
And then I'll brush and brush
              AA chord     EE chord   DbmDbm chord
And brush and brush my hair
             GbmGbm chord              AA chord EE chord    DbmDbm chord
Stuck in the same place I've always been


              GbmGbm chord            EE chord
And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'
    AA chord             EE chord    DbmDbm chord
And wanderin' and wonderin'
GbmGbm chord            BB chord     EE chord
When will my life begin?


         AA chord
Tomorrow night
    EE chord             AA chord
The lights will appear
EE chord              AA chord        EE chord        AA chord        BB chord
Just like they do on my birthday each year
DbmDbm chord         Gb7Gb7 chord 
What is it like
BB chord                    E7E7 chord
Out there where they glow?
AA chord            EE chord
Now that I'm older
       AA chord
Mother might just
       BB chord
Let me go...
