INTRO:

Gm7++D++A++D

VERSE 1:

DYou don’t live the way you should
DYou’re not chaste or wise or good
Oh Ano, +A7when you’re Dhuman

DI wait for you my queen
DI keep myself ready clean like Amy maker
Against Dnature

B7I needn’t worry about all the wars out Dthere
B7The price of fish and all the ineffective Chygiene

 
CHORUS 1:

FYou are the B♭maj7reason why I’ve Am7reached perGm7fection
FYou are the B♭maj7reason why I Am7try to tend this Gm7fertile void
I’m a Am713th century Fboy

 
VERSE 2:

DThese are heroic times
DSo thumb your nose at years gone by
Be Ahardened+A7 – we’re a Dlegend

DNow love keeps the country green
DI know because i’ve seen the Apictures+A7
In this week’s Dscriptures

B7All I know is that I feel you coming Dnear
B7All you need know is that your prophatelector is Cwaiting

 
CHORUS 1:

FYou are the B♭maj7reason why I’ve Am7reached perGm7fection

I’m a Am713th century Fboy

 
CHORUS 2:

FYou are the B♭maj7reason why I Am7live for+Gm7ever

Oh I’m a Am7new gone ages Fboy
I’m a Am713th century Gm7boy
