SONG 'Five Years'


  G Em
  Pushing through the market square, so many mothers sighing  
  A C
  News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
  G Em
  News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
  A C
  Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying
  G
I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
  Em
I saw boys, toys, electric irons and TV's
  A
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
  C
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
  Am C Am
And all the fat-skinny people,     and all the tall-short people
  C G C D
  And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
  C
I never thought I'd need so many people

  G Em
  A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children
  A C
  If the black hadn't a pulled her off, I think she would have killed them
  G Em
  A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
  A C
  A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer threw up at the sight of that
  G Em
  I think I saw you in an ice cream parlor, drinking  milk shakes cold and long
  A C
  Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think you knew you were in this song
  G
  And it was cold, and it rained, so I felt like an actor
  Em
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
  A
Your face, your race, the way that you talk 
  C
I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

  G Em
We got five years, stuck on my eyes - Five years, what a suprise
  A C
We got five years, my brain hurts alot - Five years, that's all we got 
  G
We got five years...
