D Em7 F Eb (Kid) "Whew! You sure gotta' climb a lotta' steps to get to this Capitol C G Am G building here in Washinton! Well, I wonder who that sad little scrap of paper is?" G I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and I'm sittin' here on Capitol Hill C7 Well it's a long, long journey to the capitol city. It's a long, long wait D while I'm sittin' in committee - but I know I'll be a law someday, at least Em F Eb C I hope and pray that I will, but today I am still just a bill. G Am G (Kid) "Gee, Bill, you certainly have a lot of patience and courage." (Bill) "Well, I got this far. When I started I wasn't even a bill, I was just an idea. Some folks back home decided they wanted a law passed, C7 so they called their local congressman and he said, 'You're right, there ought to be a law.' Then he sat down, wrote me out, and introduced me to Congress, and I became a bill - and I'll remain a D bill until they decide to make me a law." G I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and I got as far as Capitol Hill. C7 Well now, I'm stuck in committee, and I'll sit here and wait, while a D few key congressmen discuss and debate whether they should let me be a law. Em7 F How I hope and pray that they will, but today I am still just a bill. G (Kid) "Listen to those congressmen arguing! Is all that discussion and debate about you?" (Bill) "Yeah, I one of the lucky ones. Most bills never get this far. I C7 hope they decide to report favorably, otherwise I may die." (Kid) "Die?" G (Bill) "Yeah, die in committee. Ooh, but it looks like I'm gonna' live. D Now I go to the House of Represenatives and they vote on me." C7 (Kid) "If they vote 'Yes,' what happens?" G (Bill) "Then I go to the Senate and the whole thing starts all over again." D (Kid) "Oh, no." (Bill) "Oh, yes!" G I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and if they vote for me on Capitol Hill, C7 well, then I'm off to the White House, where I'll wait in a line with a lot D of other bills for the President to sign, and if he signs me then I'll be a law Em7 F Eb C How I hope and pray that he will, but today I am still just a bill. G Am G (Kid) "You mean, even if the whole Congress says you should be a law, G the President can still say no?" (Bill) "Yes. That's called a 'veto.' If the President vetoes me, I'll have to go back to Congress and they vote on me again, and by that time you're so old, you... C7 D (Kid) "By that time it's very unlikely that you'll become a law. It's not easy to become a law, is it?" (Bill) "No..." Em7 F Eb C But how I hope and pray that I will, but today I am still just a bill. (Congressman) "He signed you, Bill. Now you're a law." (Bill) "Oh yes!"
