[Verse 1:]
Gm           C D#                A#
the question is wouldn't mama be proud?
there's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
and the pretty post that you're taking as as an NCO 
[Bridge:]
C               D#
of the great pretender
                    Gm
i should sure think so
[Chorus:]
         A#      C  D#
wouldn't mama be proud?

[Verse 2:]
Gm               C     D#                  A#
"can I take your order?" asks the heavenly host
ticket to the jetstream blowing coast to coast
the long stem glasses, a movie and a pleasant dream in mid air
[Bridge:]
C                        D#
"you gotta tell me quickly
                  Gm
'cos we're almost there"
[Chorus:]
         A#       C  D#
wouldn't mama be proud?

[Break:]
D#                 D
pointed out of the window
A#              C
at the sky gone black
D#                       D
"kid you're on the right track"

Gm C D# A# (2x)

[Verse 3:]
Gm            C        D#                    A#
if i send you postcards from the side of the road
photographs of moving parts about to implode
if i crawl to keep it together like you say you know i can do
[Bridge:]
C                  D#
to transmit a moment
           Gm
from me to you
[Chorus:]
         A#       C  D#  Gm
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
