Verse 1When DmKarl AmMarx were a B♭boy, he Ftook a C7hard look a-Fround. He saw Am7(♭5)people were D7starving all Gmover the GmplaDce, While C7others were C7painting theF town.
Verse 2The Fpublic Gm7spirited Fboy, became a FpuCblic C7spirited Fman. So he Dmworked very Amhard, and he B♭read every-F/Athing, Un-G7til he came up with a Cplan.
Bridge 1There'll Fbe no A7exploi-Dmtation, of the Dmworker F7or his Bdim7kin. Dm No dis-A7crimi-Dmnation, 'cos the B♭colour Eof your A7skin. Dm No more B♭dim7private Bdim7proper-G♯dim7ty; it Adim7would not F♯dim7be allo-C7wed. No one C♯could rise too high, no once could Fsink too low, Or go Funder com-B♭pletely, like G7some we all Cknow.
Verse 3If FMarx were Gm7living to-Fday, He'd be Frolling a-C7round in his Fgrave. And if DmI had him Amhere, in my B♭mansion on the F/Ahill, I'd Dmtell him a Amstory; t'would B♭give his old heart a F/Achill. It's G7something that happened to Cme.
BreakI'd say, A♭Karl I Brecently Fstumbled, A♭into a Bnew fami-Fly. With C♯two little Echildren in B♭school, where C♯all little G7children should Cbe. I A♭went to the Borien-Ftation; A♭all the young Bmommies were Fthere.
Verse 4Karl, you Dmnever have Amseen such a B♭glorious F/Asight, As these Dmbeautiful Am/Cwomen, ar-B♭rayed for the Fnight. Just like C♯Countesses, A♭Empresses, B♭mmoviFe stars and Fqueens. And they'd G7come there with mith men much like Cme; F Froggish Cmen, un-B♭pleasant to Csee. Were you to C♯kiss one, Karl; B♭merry a C7prince would there Fbe.
Chorus 1See DmKarl, the B♭7world isn't Ffair; it B♭isn't and Enever will Fbe. They Gm7tried out your Fplan; it brought B♭misery in-Fstead. If you'd Gm7seen how they Fworked it, you'd be B♭glad you were Fdead. Just like B♭I'm glad I'm Fliving in the land of the free, In the B♭land of the Ffree, Where the B♭rich just get Fricher, and thB♭e poor you don'A7t ever have tDmo see. It would de-Gdimpress us, Karl, because we Fcare... That the Fdimworld, still C7isn't...Ffair.
