I CAN’T WRITE A SONG
Words by Liam Roffey
Music by Peter Letfus

Verse 1

Am C G D
Here in the garden amongst the clover

Am C G D
The sun’s sliding west and the afternoons over.

Am C G D
The clouds above and the rainbow below

Am C G Em
Perhaps the words have become my foe.

Verse 2

Am C G D
I have nothing! I can’t do this! It’s unfair!

Am C G D
Maybe I’ll try looking for words elsewhere.

Am C G D
There’s a pool of words as big as the ocean

Am C G Em
Somebody tell me where to put the boat in.

CHORUS

F C
I can’t write a song.

G Am
And what I write comes out wrong.

F C
I’ve been sitting here way too long.

G Em Am
I can’t write a song.

Verse 3

Am C G D
I’m confused and my brains turned mushy

Am C G D
This pencil and paper are looking quite dusty.

Am C G D
I’m tripping still sitting in my delusion

Am C G Em
Pushing the boundaries of the institution.

Verse 4

Am C G D
Standing up I start pacing around

Am C G D
Praying the words I’ve lost can be found.

Am C G D
Maybe they’re playing hide and seek with me

Am C G Em
I’m befuddled and flummoxed, unintelligibly.

CHORUS

Bridge

G/B C
The White Coats tell me I’m hallucinating

Dm7 G
But Miss Piggy’s advice is quite illuminating.

C
Why’s Winnie the Pooh sitting on my knee?

Dm7 G
Even Bugs Bunny is laughing at me.

C D
The Seven dwarves are singing this verse

G Em
The big chicken beside them is making it worse.

Chorus x2
Outro repeat last line x3
