Intro: D Bm F# G Bb – A – D (sing: “Do-do-do…”)
When life has got you down
Bm F# G Bb – A – D
And everything about it makes you blue:
Pick up, keep moving on,
‘Cause that’s the very best thing you can do.
D A G F#
Say, hey, Woz, whatever this is, it’s all right.
D A G F# Bm
Hey, John, this too shall pass; it’s a season in your life.
Yeah, yeah, well, I’m…
D A Bm G – F#
Kickin’ down the back streets; people wanna break my stride.
D A Bm G – F#
Everyone has a time when they lose their pride, but…
Bm F# G D
When I’m old and in my chair,
A Bm F# G
Thinking back, looking back,
What will I remember?
D Bm F# G Bb – A – D
All the good times — they were all right…
When every morning brings
A struggle just to get up from the bed…
Say, hey man, whatever this is, it’s all right.
Hey man, this too shall pass; it’s a lesson in your life.
Yeah, yeah, well…
