                   G    
  It's not unreasonable
Bbadd9       C/A          G     Bbadd9  C/A
  We've been on about it now
            G
  And this goin' round in circles 
         Bbadd9   C/A            G     Bbadd9  C/A
  is beginning to wear my mind down
                      G
  It's not in season no more
Bbadd9       C/A             G     Bbadd9  C/A
  We've grown up and gotten out
         G
  Going backwards and forward 
     Bbadd9      C/A             G     Bbadd9  C/A
  is only gonna move the dirt around

 Bb--Bb--C/A *           C       (*one strum each emphasizing bass)
All this is  is your new thing
           F
Done in an old way
       Am                       G                   F
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say
          C
Oh, what you'd do
           F
If you had your way
           Am                   G                F
But you're finding it harder to do than it is to say

                       Cadd5   Ebadd5  Fsus4***
So you can't shut your mouth

*** this sounds good for a solo part. the recording has two guitars doing something like this:

Guitar 1:
-----8----6------6----------
-----5------6-------6---6---
-----5--------5-------5-----
-----------------0----------
----------6-----------------
--8-------------------------

Guitar 2:
------------------------
------1-------4------3--
------0-------0------0--
----2-------5------5----
--3-------6------5------

The wheels are greasable
So why's it slowing down? 
Then there's a backlash and something or other's 
always on the mend now
There's a savior coming down
Whatcha doing Saturday night?
We'll get a front seat for the end of the world
They tell me if you believe, it's gonna be all right

It's their new thing 
Done in an old way
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say
Oh what you'd do
If you had your way
But you're finding it harder to do than it is to say
So you can't shut your mouth

Eb               F                   Cadd5
   Some of their movements aren't so graceful
Eb               F               Cadd5
   But man, they sure can  say   mouthful
Eb         F               Am  G  F
   Over    said and under done
Eb          F                  
   I guess that's how the war's won.


(Lead over   G     Bbadd9  C/A )

It's their new thing 
Done in an old way
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say
Oh what you'd do

                        Cadd5   Ebadd5  Fsus4*

*Ending:
