A great song, also on Francis' solo album. Slightly different then that version, but 
good. I only got the chords so far, but enjoy them, anyway.

G                                  B
When the streets are empty late at night
G                                B
Just the silence fills me with delight, s'alright
C                Cm
Rain is falling, trees are still
   G                     Em
My mind is racing but my heart is as well
         Am    D       G
It's not funny, it's a shame

G                                B
He's the greatest fighter in the world
G                          B
Got into a brawl over some girl, sweet girl
C                     Cm
He'll get better, the scars will heal
    G                      Em
His eyes will open but his heart never will
         Am    D       G
It's not funny, it's a shame

Em
There's a funny side to it all
C
Seeing someone else take a fall
Am
When it's you it happens to, sending you
G                   Bm                 Em
Tumbling, tumbling, sends you tumbling on

Such a funny side to it all
C
Take another tumble and fall
Am                             Bm (hold)
Everybody's tumbling, tumbling on

[Solo - same chords as verse]

G                                           B
Different strokes for different folks, it's true (so true)
G                                B
Changes in our lives go right on through and through
C                 Cm
It gets better as time goes on
G                    Em
Some of us are gonna end up alone
         Am    D       G
It's not funny, it's a shame

There's a funny side to it all
Seeing someone else take a fall
When it's you it happens to, sending you
Tumbling, tumbling, sends you tumbling on
Such a funny side to it all
Take another tumble and fall
Everybody's tumbling, tumbling on

There's a funny side to it all
Seeing someone else take a fall
When it's you it happens to, sending you
Tumbling, tumbling, sends you tumbling on
Such a funny side to it all
Take another tumble and fall
Everybody's tumbling, tumbling on

When the streets are empty late at night
Just the silence fills me with delight, s'alright
Rain is falling, trees are still
My mind is racing but my heart is as well
It's not funny, it's a shame

He's the greatest fighter in the world
Got into a brawl over some girl, sweet girl
He'll get better, the scars will heal
His eye will open but his heart never will
It's not funny, it's a shame

There's a funny side to it all
Seeing someone else take a fall
When it's you it happens to, sending you
Tumbling, tumbling, sends you tumbling on
Such a funny side to it all
Take another tumble and fall
Everybody's tumbling, tumbling on
