[Verse 1]
Em                    D
.."Every day I feel a little bit smaller
Em                    C
Yet everyday I get a little bit larger"
Em              D
Said the man to himself
                Em                    C
Stepping off a scale, stepping on a shelf
               Em                      D
Stepping on a train going home to his wife
              Em                         C
Put him at a desk, it's the rest of his life
          Em                  D
He says, "How'd I get talked into this? What'd I miss?
Em                   C
I wanna make a fast break"

[Pre-Chorus]
             Am
"Look at my life I'm a lot like you.
          Em 
If I'm a shine then you'll shine too
         Am                       D
I am as common as a breakup or a blade of grass"

[Chorus]
G               D           C                      G
Fighters on the TV shaking hands when the fight is done
       G        D         C
Say, "Kumbaya, life rolls on"
      D
Life rolls on
G                     D      C                        D 
If you got room for friends, I know someone who could use one
G         D          C
Kumbaya, life rolls on
     D
Life rolls on

[Verse 2]
         Em                   D
He says, "I can't complain my life is simple
   Em                       C
A pencil never reaches its full potential
    Em                D
It always gets tossed when it gets short
   Em                   C
I used to dream about joining the Peace Corps
Em              D
 Somewhere in a hot, hot jungle
        Em                      C
Where I sleep in a hammock and bathe in a waterfall
    Em           D
Now I look at my phone all day
     Em               C
Say, 'Hey who's that cat? '"

[Pre-Chorus]
             Am 
"Look at my life I'm a lot like you
          Em 
If I'm a shine then you'll shine too
             Am                            D
I live on a pile of junk too valuable to throw away"

[Chorus]
G               D           C                      G
Fighters on the TV shaking hands when the fight is done
       G        D         C
Say, "Kumbaya, life rolls on"
      D
Life rolls on
G                     D      C                        D 
If you got room for friends, I know someone who could use one
G         D          C
Kumbaya, life rolls on
     D
Life rolls on

[Verse 3]
 Em 
"A quarterback makes an incomplete pass
And I'm tired of having to laugh
At all those jokes that aren't that funny
Tired of kissing ass like it's crapping out money
Em                        D
Whatever happened to the guitar solo?
Em                        C
Whatever happened to crying my name out?
Em                        D
Whatever happened to waking the neighbors
Em                       C
And sleeping on a futon couch?"

[Pre-Chorus]
             Am 
"Look at my life I'm a lot like you
         Em 
If I'm a shine then you'll shine too
           Am                         D
Now I have everything delivered to my door, my door, my door"

[Chorus]
G               D           C                      G
Fighters on the TV shaking hands when the fight is done
       G        D         C
Say, "Kumbaya, life rolls on"
      D
Life rolls on
G                     D      C                        D 
If you got room for friends, I know someone who could use one
G         D          C  D
Kumbaya, life rolls on...
G         D          C  D
Kumbaya, life rolls on...
