Verse and chorus are played the same for each subsequent verse and chorus 
section, with different words.


(Verse:)

           Am              F
I feel for you, you little horror

     Dm               G
Safe at your mother's breast

   Dm    Am        F                G
No lucky break for you around the corner

            Am     Am/G F
'Cause your father is a bully

       Dm                   G
And he thinks that you're a pest

         C/G    F        C             Am
And your sister she's no better than a whore.


(Chorus:) 


Dm   Am       F           G
Life seems so rosy in the cradle,

         Am   G           F                  G
But I'll be a friend I'll tell you what's in store

        Dm      Am     F          G
There's nothing at the end of the rainbow.

        Am      G       F         G
There's nothing to grow up for anymore


Tycoons and barrow boys will rob you
And throw you on the side
And all because they love themselves sincerely
And the man hold a bread knife
Up to you throat it's four feet wide
And he's anxious just to show you what it's for.
 
Your mother works so hard to make you happy
But take a look outside your nursery door
There's nothing at the end of the rainbow.
There's nothing to grow up for anymore
 
All the sad and empty faces
That pass you in the street
All running in their sleep, all in a dream
Every loving handshake
Is just another man to beat
How your heart aches just to cut hiom to the core
 
Life seems so rosy in the cradle,
But I'll be a friend I'll tell you what's in store
There's nothing at the end of the rainbow.
There's nothing to grow up for anymore
but I'll be a friend, I'll tell you what's in store
There's nothing at the end of the rainbow
There's nothing to grow up for anymore
