c       F7     c
 I, can turn a grey sky blue,

and I can make it rain,
     c
When-ever I want it to.

   c
Oh I can build a castle,
F7      c
 From a single grain of sand,
    c                      F7
And I can make a ship sail,
    c
Uh, on dry land.

That money can buy.

   c                  F7
