musical performance, Hugh Laurie performed an old song from his days with A
Bit of Fry and Laurie.

      Laurie tends to do some hammer-ons at the optional (C).

Intro: | G  C | G  C | G  C | G  Bm  C  G | G  Bm  C  G | G  C | G  C |

  G                          Bm              C                 G  (C)
Well, the poor keep getting hungry, and the rich keep getting fat
  G          Bm                C                     G  (C)
Politicians change, but they're never gonna change that.
  G              Bm               C                  G  (C)
Girl, we got the answer, it's so easy you won't believe
  Am                 D
All we gotta do is.. [ mumbles incoherently ] 

Break: | G  C | G  C |

  G                             Bm            C            G  (C)
Well, the winds of war are blowin', and the tide is comin' in
  G                            Bm                    C                        G  (C)
Don't you be hopin' for the good times, because the good times have already been.
  G                      Bm             C                 G  (C)
But, girl, we got the answer, it's so easy you won't believe
  Am                 D
All we gotta do is.. [ mumbles incoherently ] 

  Em           Am
It's so easy, to see
  Em                             D
If only they'd listen, to you and me.
  D          G                   C                 D
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] as fast as we can
  D          G                   C                    D
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] every woman, every man
  D          G                   C              D
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] time after time
  D          G                   C              D
We got to.. [ mumbles incoherently ] vodka and lime.

Break: | G  C | G  C |

  G                         Bm            C              G  (C)
Well, the world is gettin' weary, and it wants to go to bed
  G           Bm               C                     G  (C)
Everybody's dyin', except the ones who are already dead.
  G                 Bm       C                     G  (C)        
Girl, we got the answer, starin' us right in the face
  Am
All we gotta do is
  Am
All we gotta do is
  Am
All we gotta do is.

[ pauses, then blows on the harmonica and finishes with outro ]
