         Bm                          C
All you great men of power, you who boast of your feats -
      Bm                    C
Politicians and entrepreneurs.
        Bm                           C
Can you safeguard your breath in the night while you sleep?
          Bm                        C
Keep your heart beating steady and sure?
        D                         B7
As you lie in your bed, does the thought haunt your head
            Bm              A7
That you're really, rather small?
            C                         Bm
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.

        Bm                       C
All you champions of science and rulers of men,
        Bm                        C
Can you summon the sun from its sleep?
         Bm                         C
Does the earth seek your counsel on how fast to spin?
         Bm                          C
Can you shut up the gates of the deep?
          D                             B7
Don't you know that all things hang, as if by a string,
         Bm                   A7
O'er the darkness - poised to fall?
           C                         Bm
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.

        Bm                          C
All you big shots that swagger and stride with conceit,
         Bm                               C
Did you devise how your frame would be formed?
             Bm                     C
If you'd be raised in a palace, or live out in the streets,
         Bm                                   C
Did you choose the place or the hour you'd be born?
         D                         B7
Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing - not your name!
         Bm         A7             C    
Tell me if you can recall just one thing,
                           Bm
That's not a gift in this life?

Bm                         C
Can you hear what's been said?
        Bm           Bm           Bm           A7
Can you see now that everything's grace after all?
            C                       Bm
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
