Words & Music:

Ric Ocasek (The Cars)


A                    AM7           A    AM7

Who's gonna tell you when it's too late?

A                    AM7           A      AM7

Who's gonna tell you things aren't so great?



F#m          Bm        F#m          Bm 

You can't go on, thinking nothing's wrong.

A                     AM7      A

Who's gonna drive you home tonight?


Who's gonna pick you up when you fall?

Who's gonna hang it up when you call?

Who's gonna pay attention to your dreams?

And who's gonna plug your ears when you scream?




A    F#m    A    F#m    Bm    E    Bm    E


Who's gonna hold you down when you shake?

Who's gonna come around when you break?


CHORUS:  [2x]
