Verse:
Gm        F      Eb
I wrote a simple song

Eb          F         Bbsus Bb
With simple words and harmony

Gm        F    Eb            F          G
It wasn't very long before a star I was bound to be

Gm       F          Eb
I didn't care if it made the charts

Eb     F            Bbsus Bb
I only wrote it for you and me

Gm   F                Eb
They think that they're so smart

Eb             F             G
They're not as smart as they want to be

Gm           F      Eb
They took my simple song

Eb               F             Bbsus Bb
They changed the words and the melody

Gm      F         Eb
Made it all sound wrong

Eb     F             G
Now it sounds like a symphony
