Lucky Ones

B              E
I can't really take it
    F#               B
So I'll just have to fake it
   E                       B
Pretend that I'm the lucky one
    B            E
His deep pontification's 
     F#               B
The source of my frustrations
     E                F#     B
I'm smiling and just acting dumb

F#     E              B
He's repeating all the same old stories
F#       E             B
He's the center of them all
F#      E             B        C#
He's reliving all the same sad glories
     C#                 F#
For aren't we all the lucky ones?

B                  E
People think he's charming
 F#              B
Brilliant and disarming
    E                                B
Convinced that they're the fortunate sons
    B            E
But he's so unrelenting
 F#            B
Blind and unrepenting
     E                F#     B
And pretty soon he's down to one

F#       E           B
He's not listening to anything we're saying
F#    E                B
Interrupts before we're done
F#     E               B         C#
Doesn't know the heavy price he's paying
C#               F#
Aren't we all the lucky ones?
