I'd Love To Change The World

Words & Music:

Alvin Lee (Ten Years After)


Em   G   Am   C   B7  [2x]


Em            G                   Am

Everywhere is freaks and hairies, dykes and fairies,

C       B7       Em  G  Am  C  B7

Tell me where is sanity

Tax the rich, feed the poor,

'Til there are no rich no more.



    Em                       G      Am         C       B7

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do.

So, I leave it up to you.


Population keeps on breeding, nation bleeding,

Still more feeding, economy.

Life is funny, skies are sunny, bees make honey.

Who needs money?  Monopoly.




World pollution, there's no solution,

Institution, electrocution.

Spread the word, rich or poor,

Them and us, stop the war.
