NOTES - Took a while to get this all down. A few odd chords but here we are. It all 
sounds very accurate.
      - Chord finger positions below. Two slightly different ways to play Dmaj7 and D7. 
Take your pick. To keep it simple, play it the first way :)
      - Enjoy! Corrections, comments and ratings warmly welcome!

  D                               Dmaj7
I wish that I could get up in the early morning time,
                 D7                          G
And things would fall out of the sky into my lap,
  Gm                         D
I wish I had the brain of a Tyrannosaurus Rex,
          E                                   A
So that I wouldn't have to deal with all this crap.


  D                                      Dmaj7
I wish that I'd been born with skin that turned to golden brown,
      D7                                  G
While at the beach relaxing in the summer time,
  Gm                                D
I wish that I was good at football, baseball and lacrosse,
          E                               A      Bbm
Darts and basketball, and poker, golf and chess.


Bm                            E
   I'm sorry that they didn't hand it to me,
        A                                D   Dmaj7
   On a silver platter, like they did to you.
Bm                         E
   I'm sorry that I wasn't able to become,
       A                             D   Dmaj7
   The man you think I should aspire to.


Small instrumental - Bm  D  E  A


  D                         Dmaj7
I wish I had the genes of Edwardo Verastegui,
           D7                        G
That I was effortlessly masculine as well,
  Gm                               D
I wish that confidence was all you could see in my eyes,
           E                               A
Like those interviews in locker rooms with talented sports guys.


  D                            Dmaj7
I wish I had no self-awareness like the guys I know,
    D7                                        G
Who float right through their lives without a thought.
   Gm                                D
Or that I didn't give a shit what anybody thought of me,
           E                                 A      Bbm
That I was so relaxed you'd think that I was bored.


Bm                            E
   I'm sorry that they didn't hand it to me,
        A                                D   Dmaj7
   On a silver platter, like they did to you.
Bm                         E
   I'm sorry that I wasn't able to become,
       A                             D   Dmaj7
   The man you think I should aspire to.
