     Am   Am/G  D/F#         G/B            C(add9)
Whenever I see someone less fortunate than I
          Am     Am/G    D/F#        G/B       F(add9)
And let's face it,   who isn't, less fortunate than I?
   F/Eb   Eb    Eb/Db    Db       C(add9)
My tender heart tends to start to bleed
         Am      Am/G    D/F#       G/B            C(add9)
And when someone needs a makeover I simply have to take over
  Ab(add9)      Bb(add9)/Ab     Gsus2(add9) G
I know I know exactly what they need
Gm               C
And even in your case
                Am7                D/F#
Though it's the toughest case I've yet to face
      Gm           Bb/Eb          C(add9) C
Don't worry, I'm determined to succeed
   F/Bb   C(add9) Dm7/D
Follow my lead
