Cmaj7                Dm7/9
Hang out the flags a new world order's on the way
Cmaj7               Dm7/9
Start singing now a song to greet the joyful day
G/A  Fmaj7
       Just when we thought the time was right for celebrating
Dm7/9
  With music of the spheres
Fmaj7
  What's this - another boat of fleeing refugees on
Dm7/9
  A sea of children's tears

G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth

Cmaj7              Dm7/9
We're only men and women doing what we can
Cmaj7                    Dm7/9
  Sometimes I think that God is working to a plan
G/A  Fmaj7
       Then other times I swear that he is improvising
Dm7/9
  Discordant and remote
Fmaj7
  Another orphan baby in failed uprising
Dm7/9
  Another real bum note

G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth

Cmaj7           Dm7
  And if you're listening up there
Cmaj7          Dm7
  You could consider this a prayer

G/A  Fmaj7
       Well who am I to tell you how to run your business
Dm7/9
  Man, you could strike me blind
Fmaj7
  What kind of noise we gotta make down here before we
Dm7/9
  Destroy your peace of mind

G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
G               Am
  Once more the sound of crying
Dm7
  Is number one across the earth
