A          A        A      A G D   <-- Chord Progression 1 (CP1)
Spread the word around
A          A        A      A G D
The rat is leaving town
A         A        A      A G D
The message is a song
A      A       A      A G D
The misery is gone

(CP1)
Once I had a dream
To sing before the queen
She didn't want to know
She wouldn't see the show

E     E    E     E   D   A     <-- Chord Prograssion 2 (CP2)
               What a fright
E     E    E     E       D     A
               I couldn't do it right
E     E    E     E     D    A
               Oh what a night

(CP1)
Mystic demons fly
All about the sk
With memories of a clown
The saddest show in town

(CP1)
When I was seventeen
Me mother said to me
Be careful what you touch
You shouldn't take so much

(CP2)
I blew my mind
She was so kind
I could have cried

B  B  B     B A G#     <--Chord Progression 3 (CP3)
In my mind
B  B      B     B A G#
I had to find
B        B     B      B A G#
A kind of new way
B        B      B     B A G#
Of being oh so cool
B       B      B     B A G#
Like a blue blooded
B     B     B     B A G#
Well studded
B    B   B      B A G#
English fool

(Solo)

(CP1)
Speak about the past
Times are changing fast
Once I was so weak
I couldn't even speak

(CP1)
Shaking put a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

(CP2)
Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me

(CP1)
Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
The message is a song
The misery is gone

(CP1)
Shaking out a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

(CP2)
Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me

Please stay away
