B4                    E
7 AM, the usual morning lineup
B4                                               E
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
C                                       G
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
       B4  B4/A  G#m13        F#m11  B4
Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15

            E      A
And so I'll read a book
        F#m     E
Or maybe two or three
           C#m7    F#m             A     E
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
            C#m7     F#m
I'll play guitar and knit
             A G#m13 C#m7
And cook and basically
            F#m11        B4  E            ( B4 )
Just wonder when will my life begin? 

B4                                        E
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
B4                             E
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
C                               G
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
          B4    B4/A  G#m13         F#m11
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
Sew a dress!

         E          A
And I'll reread the books
          F#m     E
If I have time to spare
               C#m7       F#m
I'll paint the walls some more
                 A        E
I'm sure there's room somewhere
              C#m7      F#m
And then I'll brush and brush
              A    G#m13  C#m7
and brush and brush my hair
             F#m             A  G#m13  C#m7
Stuck in the same place I've always been

              F#m           G#m13
And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'
    A             G#m13  C#m7
And wanderin' and wonderin'
F#m          B4 E
When will my life begin?
E5           A5/E
And tomorrow night
E5          A5/E
Lights will appear
E5             A5/E     E5            A5  B
Just like they do on my birthday each year

C#m7       F#m11
What is it like
B4                 E7
Out there where they glow?
A            G#m13
Now that I'm older
Mother might just
Let me go...
