####################################

F		G	Em		Am
I would be a liar if I pretended I admire
F			G		C		
The red-light windscreen-cleaning empire that you’ve built.

F			G			Em			Am
But my heart is good it’s not a thing of stone and wood
			F		G		C
I’ll give you 50 cents to take away my guilt.

C		G			Am				Em
I give money to folk who just don’t have enough,
		Am			Em				F
To try to justify the future purchases of stuff
G		C			G
That I don’t need.
C			G		Am			Em
I know that one less Vodka Cranberry tonight
		Am				Em				F
Could probably feed some foreign family for a fortnight,
		G			F
But I might just have one more.
			Em   
After all what is Vodka for
	F					G				C
Apart from making you want to shag your best mate’s wife,
	F					G				C
And drowning out the guilt you feel about your perfect life? 

		

C		G		Am		         Em		
Fuck the poor, what is all this hoo-ha for?
			Am				Em		F G
There’s only one reason I’ll phone 1800 034 034
	F						Em
It’s the force behind Teresa and the school that Oprah built,
			F		G		 C
I’ll give you 50 bucks to take away my guilt.

Fuck the poor, I’m not pretending any more
That I really give two shits about some kids in Bangalore.
I’m more interested in footy than seeing the Solomon’s rebuilt,
But I’ll give you 50 bucks to take away my guilt.

This is a Tim Minchin I have transcribed myself, I don't think it's completely 
right but if you play it and sing it it will definately sound like the real 
thing. I've also worked out Dark Side so I will post that soon too!
