...THE WORLD ISN'T FAIR... by Randy Newman
--------------------------................

*from 'Bad Love' (1999)*


Verse 1:

     Dm   Am          Bb
When Karl Marx were a boy,
   F      C7          F
He took a hard look a-round.

       Am7b5       D7
He saw people were starving,
    Gm       Gm/D
All over the place,
      C7          C7+          F
While others were painting the town.

Verse 2:

    F      Gm7      F
The public spirited boy,
         F/C    C7       F
Became a public spirited man.

      Dm          Am
So he worked very hard,
       Bb   F/A
And he read everything,
   G7                    C
Un-til he came up with a plan.

Bridge 1:

         F     A7     Dm
There'll be no exploi-tation,
       Dm     F7     Bdim7
Of the worker or his kin.
Dm      A7    Dm
 No dis-crimi-nation,
         Bb     E       A7
'Cos the colour of your skin.

Dm       Bbdim7  Bdim7  G#dim7
 No more private proper-ty,
Bbdim7   Bdim7  G#dim7
 Private proper-ty,
   Adim7     F#dim7  C7
It would not be allo-wed;

       C#
No one could rise too high,
             F
No one could sink too low,
      F         Bb
Or go under com-pletely,
     G7          C
Like some we all know.

Verse 3:

   F         Gm7       F
If Marx were living to-day,
        F         C7           F
He'd be rolling a-round in his grave.

       Dm        Am
And if I had him here,
      Bb             F/A
In my mansion on the hill,
    Dm         Am
I'd tell him a story;
        Bb                   F/A
T'would give his old heart a chill.
     G7                         C
It's something that happened to me.

Break:

         Ab     B        F
I'd say, Karl I recently stumbled,
Ab      B        F
 Into a new fami-ly.

     C#         E           Bb
With two little children in school,
      C#         G7              C
Where all little children should be.

  Ab          B     F
I went to the orien-tation,
Ab             B            F
 All the young mommies were there.

Verse 4:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/r/randy-newman/96467.html ]
          Dm         Am
Karl, you never have seen,
       Bb       F/A
Such a glorious sight,
         Dm        Am/C
As these beautiful women,
   Bb            F
Ar-rayed for the night.

          C#          Ab
Just like Countesses, Empresses,
Bbm/F            F/C
 Movie stars and queens.
           G7
And they'd come there with,
                   C
With men much like me;
F         C       Bb          C
 Froggish men, un-pleasant to see.
            C#
Were you to kiss one, Karl;
Bb       C7                 F
 Merry a prince would there be.

Chorus 1:

    Dm        Bb7         F
See Karl, the world isn't fair,
   Bb        E          F
It isn't and never will be.

     Gm7            F
They tried out your plan;
           Bb        F
It brought misery in-stead.
         Gm7           F
If you'd seen how they worked it,
         Bb            F
You'd be glad you were dead.

          Bb           F
Just like I'm glad I'm living,
       Bb          F
In the land of the free,
          Bb            F/C
Where the rich just get richer,
        Bb             A7           Dm
And the poor you don't ever have to see.


            Gdim
It would de-press us, Karl,
           F/C
Because we care,
         Fdim        C7      F
That the world still isn't...fair.

Outro:

F  Gm7  F, F  C, F
