C  G  F
C  G  F

[Verse 1]
C                            F                G
   You have to wash with the crocodile in the river
C                            F             G
   You have to swim with the sharks in the sea
C                            F             G
   You have to live with the crooked politician
C                          F             G
   Trust those things that you can never see

[Break]
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye

[Verse 2]
C                        F                 G
   You got to trust your lover when you go away
C                             F               G
   Keep on believing tomorrow brings a better day
C                           F               G
   Sometimes you smile when you're crying inside
C                                    F                G
   Just put you tears away while the truth is shining bright

[Break]
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye

[Chorus]
G      F            C
It's a cruel, crazy beautiful world
C             F                   G             F     C
Every day you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
G      F            C
It's a cruel, crazy beautiful world
C                F                      G       F    C
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
G       F
Say goodbye
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!

[Break]

[Bridge]
G
   Beyond the door, strange cruel beautiful years lie waiting for you
G
   It kills me to know you won't escape loneliness
G
   Maybe you lose hope too

[Break]
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye
C              G                  F
   Ayeye ayeye Jesse Bwana, ayeye   ayeye

Every day you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
G      F            C
It's a cruel, crazy beautiful world
C                F                      G       F    C
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
G       F
Say goodbye
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!

[Verse 3]
C                         F             G
   When I feel your small body close to mine
C                         F           G
   I feel weak and strong at the same time
C                           F        G
   So few years to give you wings to fly
C                        F               G
   Show you the stars to guide your ship by

[Chorus]
G      F            C
It's a cruel, crazy beautiful world
C             F                   G             F     C
Every day you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
G      F            C
It's a cruel, crazy beautiful world
C                F                      G       F    C
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
G       F
Say goodbye
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!
C          F                  C
Goodbye -- it's your world so live in it!

[Outro]
F                  C
It's your world so live in it
F                  C
It's your world so live in it
