Intro - Am, G , Am, G, Am

Am
You were looking down at them, they were looking down at you.
        G                                      Am
You were starched and press, they were all disheveled.

They were holding hands, they were ragamuffins and 
              G                                          Am
They said "I know we're not fancy, but we're on the same level.
                                                  G
We've got plans, big plans we're gonna change the world.
                                                  Am
All you care about is dollars, that doesn't make sense.
                                               G
All you do is hit snooze, watch the news, buy shoes, drink booze, make
Money, feel spent.

Am
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
G
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
Am
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
G                                          Am
Day after day after day after day after day."

Then you look at them without batting an eye and say
G                                       Am
"Hey little hippie, let your freak flag fly. 

Why don't you go smoke a bowl in your best tie dye, 
      G                                  Am
Get a tattoo of a dancing bear holding a peace sign.

You can talk the talk but when it comes to real change, 
      G
Aren't you and all your little friends exactly the same?
    Am
You sit around at potlucks pointing fingers, placing blame, 
        G                           
Drinking kombucha, and eating tempeh.

Am
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
G
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
Am
Day after day after day, it's the same shit.
G                                          Am
Day after day after day after day after day."


If you are judging them while they are judging you, 
         G                                                       Am
And you think that makes them assholes, maybe you're an asshole too.

Do we argue with each other 'til we both turn blue,
         G                                        Am
Or find similarities in what we like and what we do?

Yeah, just because someone does not look like me
G
Doesn't mean that they are a clone or a sheep.
      Am
Maybe they like their job and they're living their dream, 
         G                                   Am
And they love their friends and their family.

Some people thrive between nine and five, 
    G
And feel like they're choking if their neck's not tied.
    Am
And some people feel as if they're gonna die
          G                                             Am
If their seams aren't straight and their shoes aren't tied.

Some people like business, some people like numbers, 
    G
Some people grow organic heirloom cucumbers, 
   Am
And only feel free with their hands in the dirt
    G
In a pair of old jeans and their favorite t-shirt
    Am
Some people feel enslaved when they have a boss,
    G
Some people without one feel totally lost.
   Am
To make this world work it takes all different kinds.
  G
We have all different tastes, different strengths, different minds, 
Am
So it doesn't make sense to generalize
     G
And it doesn't make sense to judge with our eyes.
  Am
We need more compassion, we need to be kind
  G
If you open your heart you might like what you find.
  Am
'Cause there are some mean bus drivers, but there's some nice bus drivers
  G
And there are some nice cops in Madison, Wisconsin.
 Am
And there's some nice teachers, and there's some mean teachers, 
 G
Just because you have a mean teacher doesn't mean all teachers suck.
 Am
And no one is nice all the time, no one is mean all the time
 G
Think about what someone's going through that's making them be mean to you
 Am
Maybe their pet gerbil died and they are really sad inside, 
 G
Or maybe they got in a fight with someone that they really like,
  Am
Maybe they are really shy and don't know to socialize
  G
They just want to run and hide, not saying that it's justified
 Am
But if we learn to empathize the resentments will vaporize
 G
Situations metamorphize before out very eyes.
 Am                                                        G
Then the need to stereotype will become outdated when we realize everyone
 
Is really complicated.
       Am
We are all so complicated, we are all so complicated
G
I am also complicated, I am also complicated

 Am         
I'm a black mama lactivist, a home-owning punk.
          G
It's been over a decade since the last time I got drunk.
    Am
I drive a minivan, I've got junk in the trunk.
        G
I think Danny Devito is a total hunk.
       Am
I like revisiting the shit my therapist helps me remember.
       G
Being friends with someone for a long time, still not knowing their gender.
     Am
I fight for equal rights and I fight for inner peace.
   G
I pray to the dead for the gratitude I need.
          Am
I've got chickens in my backyard and a little garden plot, 
   G
I really hate commercials but I got a slap-chop.
     Am
I'm a sucker for a remix, let me tell you what, 
  G
By the time that I am finished, you're gonna love these nuts.
      Am
I'm a little bit pop culture, a lot bit D.I.Y., 
  G
I don't know the definition of T.M.I.
    Am
I write poems about my period, post pictures of my log, 
  G
If you don't like body functions then you shouldn't read my blog.
 Am
My husband's a musician from the mountains in France,
    G
He wrote me a song, we did interpretive dance, 
  Am
Then he knocked me up, now we have the coolest kid, 
  G
Yeah, hooking up with him's the smartest thing I ever did.
   Am
Now I feel like I can fly when I'm on roller skates,
   G
I feel a little high when I eat dried dates, 
   Am
I feel like i'm unloading when i'm loading up the car
    G
I feel like i'm exploding when I play my guitar
   Am
I don't understand what numbers have to do with success
   G
Or what sales have to do with happiness, 
    Am
Unless they're the kind of sails that will carry me to sea, 
  G
Where my grandma and grandpa are waiting for me.
 Am                                      G
I never thought I'd make it to 25, now I'm 37 and I'm glad that I'm alive.
     Am
If I ever need a tour bus I'm still gonna drive,
              G                                            Am
Cause I like looking out the windshield as the world goes by, 

Looking out the windshield as the world goes by.
G
Looking out the windshield as the world goes by.
Am
Now I'm 37 and I'm glad that I'm alive
           G                                            Am
And I like looking out the windshield as the world goes by.
