D#dim G

C.............................................A
You can read right through a book of matches
Dm..................G
But that wonít make you smart
C................................C7
You can laugh in the face of watches
F...............................Fm
But time will only break your heart

F......................Fm
Kings reign beneath umbrellas
C.....................A
Hide pennies down in cellars
Dm........................A
And money pours down and yet
Dm.......................G
No everyone gets soaking wet

C.......................F
When bores and bullies conspire
E7...............A7
To stamp out your spark
D7 
Listen forÖ
....G7..................C
A Voice In The Dark

C...........................Am7...........Dm7.....G
Not a moment too soon as we blue the moon
C....................Am7.....Dm7.....G
And a wolf begins to howl in tune 
C.......................Am7...Dm7
I announced for all mankind
......G
A boon
C.............................C7
Stand aside you big baboon
.........................F..........
Now Iím the a prize invention
..................Fm
Youíre the image of yourself
......C
Forget your cares
..............A
And disapproving stares
D7
Iím not here to try to jump your borders
G
Just ask your nieces and daughters 
C..............Am7........Dm7.........G
Iím flat as sole, Iím happy as a clam
C..............Am7........Dm7.........G (could also be another D#dim)
But they donít know the kind of man I am
C..............Am7................Dm7......G
Little fish swimming in a jealous shoal
...............C..............C7
Now my net is overflowing
.........................F.....................Fm
And I suddenly seem to be all seeing and all knowing
.......C
Iíve got something right there
................A
That you might want to hear
D7
But have no fear 
Lend a hand 
Lend an ear
G
If your rent-money is in arrears 


C..................................A
Weíll be striking up a symphony bandstand
Dm......................G
Long of hair and loose of tooth
C.........................................C7
Thereíll be pirouettes and startling handstands
F...................................................................Fm
And who but acrobats know how to tell the truth
Fm........
When is said that then redundant
C...........................A
They gallivant in peg-leg pants
Dm
IĎll be your servant
............A
Youíll be my pal
Dm.................................G
Iíll be ever faithful you know I shall
C........................F
Thereís no fool like an old fool
E7..........................A
Who blames it all upon his youth
Dm...................G.........................................C
When times are tough and you find youíre down
.............................A
Without a star to wish upon
.......D7
Just listen forÖ
..........................G
A Voice In The Dark


C.....................................A
I was striking through a box of matches
Dm...............G
Hoping that one would spark
C...........................C7
I heard somebody calling to me 
F...........
A voice in the dark

F....................Fm
A sound both wild and gentle
C..................A
Daring and confidential
Dm......................
I thought there was music playing 
.Dm7...........................G
But it was all and only talk
C.......................F.......................C............A
When liars and bullies conspire to stamp out your spark
D7..........................G
Fill up that empty space in your heart
C...............................A
Listen up, when the herald says, ďHarkĒ
D7....................G........................C
Believe in just a voice in the darkÖ
