VERSE 1
========
MIm LA RE#m
It ain’t no joke I’d like to buy the world a toke
LA MIm LA RE#m
And teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
LA MIm LA RE#m
And teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
LA MIm LA RE#m
Hey I know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe
LA MIm LA RE#m
This is a love attack I know it went out but it’s back.
LA MIm LA RE#m
It’s just like any fad it retracts before impact
LA MIm LA
And just like fashion it’s a passion for the with it and
RE#m
the hip
LA MIm LA
If you got the goods they’ll come and buy it just to stay
RE#m LA
in the clique

CHORUS
========
MIm LA RE#m LA
So don’t delay act now supplies are running out
MIm LA RE#m LA
Allow if you’re still alive six to eight years to arrive
MIm LA RE#m LA
And if you follow there may be a tomorrow
MIm LA SI7
But if the offer is shun you might as well be walkin’ on the sun

VERSE 2
========
MIm LA RE#m LA
Twenty-five years ago they spoke out and they broke out
MIm LA RE#m
Of recession and oppression and together they toked
LA MIm LA RE#m LA
And they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
MIm LA RE#m
Just singin’ and clappin’ man what the hell happened
LA MIm LA
Then some were spellbound some were hellbound
RE#m LA MIm LA
Some they fell down and some got back up and
RE#m LA
Fought back ‘gainst the melt down
MIm LA RE#m
And their kids were hippie chicks all hypocrites
LA MIm LA RE#m LA
Because fashion is smashin’ the true meaning of it

CHORUS
========
MIm LA RE#m LA
So don’t delay act now supplies are running out
MIm LA RE#m LA
Allow if you’re still alive six to eight years to arrive
MIm LA RE#m LA
And if you follow there may be a tomorrow
MIm LA SI7
But if the offer is shun you might as well be walkin’ on the sun

VERSE 3 (inizia in silenzio)
========
It ain’t no joke when a mama’s handkerchief is soaked

With her tears because her baby’s life has been revoked

The bond is broke up so choke up and focus on the close up

Mr. Wizard can’t perform no godlike hocus-pocus
MIm LA RE#m
So don’t sit back kick back and watch the world get
LA
bushwhacked
MIm LA RE#m
News at 10:00 your neighborhood is under attack
LA MIm LA RE#m
Put away the crack before the crack puts you away
LA MIm LA SI7
You need to be there when your baby’s old enough to relate

CHORUS
========
MIm LA RE#m LA
So don’t delay act now supplies are running out
MIm LA RE#m LA
Allow if you’re still alive six to eight years to arrive
MIm LA RE#m LA
And if you follow there may be a tomorrow
MIm LA SI7
But if the offer is shun you might as well be walkin’ on the sun

FINALE
=========
MIm LA RE#m LA MIm LA
You might as well be walkin’ on the sun
RE#m LA MIm LA
You might as well be walkin’ on the sun
RE#m LA MIm LA
You might as well be walkin’ on the sun
RE#m LA SIm
You might as well be walkin’ on the sun
