Beautiful song! music, lyrics...everything!
After reading the other tabs on this song I was kind of dissapointed, 
I was going to comment with the corrections, but there were more than 
I expected, small ones off course, but yet important. I just hope that 
the chords are in the right spot! Enjoy!

Verse:
Am                       G
Lyin' in the park  On a beautiful day
     G                            F
Sun shine in the grass,  and the children play 
 Am               G
Siren's passin'  Fire engine's red
           G                          F          (G)
Someone's house is burning down on a day like this 

Verse:
     Am                            G
The evening comes       And we're hangin' out 
           G                                       F 
On the front step       And a car goes by with the windows rolled down 
        Am                            G
And that, war song is playin why canít we be friends
         G                              F                (G)
Someone is screamin' and cryin' in the apartment upstairs 

CHORUS:
C                                    G
Funny the way it is     And if you think about it 
    Bm                                      F                 (G)
Somebody's goin' hungry         And someone else is eatin' out 
C                                G
Funny the way it is     Whether right or wrong 
     Bm                                  F                       (G)
Somebody's heart is broken     And it becomes your favorite song

Verse:
Am                                G
The way your mouth feels in your lover's kiss 
               G                    F
Like a pretty bird on a breeze  Or water to a fish 
       Am                               G
But a bomb blast, brings the building crashin' to the floor 
          G                   F               (G)
Hear the laughter, while the children play war
