[Verse 1]
C#                     E
Is it the pain of the drinkin'
        G#m            C#  
Or the Sunday sinking feelin'?
   Fm               F#   
Uh,..the car never seems to work
D                                      
..When it's late, your girlfriend's on a date
E                                 C
..And the hero with her in your dream
                                D
In your sleep, it seemed like you

[Pre-Chorus]
D
Turn around, ask yourself
D
..Turn around, ask yourself

[Chorus]
A#m    D#    C#          B
..Manchild, will you ever win?
A#m    D#    B                       C#    
..Manchild, look at the state you're in

[Verse 2]
C#                 E
Could you go undercover
    G#m                  C#
And sell your brand new lover?
          Fm         F# 
Could you be someone else for a night?
D                               E
..Maybe someone else will love you
                                C
You sell your soul for a tacky song
                                D 
Like the one you hear on the radio

[Pre-Chorus]
D
Turn around, ask yourself
D
..Turn around, ask yourself

[Chorus]
A#m    D#    C#          B
..Manchild, will you ever win
A#m    D#    B                       C#
..Manchild, look at the state you're in, yeah
A#m    D#   C#                B
..Manchild, he will make you cry
A#m   D#    A#m    D#   A#m    D# 
..Manchild,...Manchild,...Manchild

[Bridge]
D#m
...From Monday down to Friday
                                A#m
You're workin' on another man's car
D#m
...Or is it in the factory?
                            A#m
It doesn't matter where you are

[Interlude]
C#m
....

[Verse 3]
     C#
Just turn around and ask yourself, "Is this communication?"
   A
Accentuate the positive to give some illustration
     B 
See Manchild, you're no one, you turn the microphone on
    G#m
Control communication when I'm kickin' it and so on
       C#m
To the point that I need the air that I breathe
  A                                                B
Into an audience that's waiting and ecstatic to receive
                                               G#m
For the meantime another mean rhyme (I keep on sayin' it)
                                                 C#m
I know what the time is, the crowd will keep on playin' it
                                          A
Through the speaker boxes loud's my diagnosis
                                                  B 
'Cause I believe in miracles and words in steady doses
                       G#m  
Enough R E S P E and C T

Respect yourself, express, no stress, the mike is easy

Just believe that all you need is the air that you breathe

[Chorus]
A#m    D#    C#         B
..Manchild, will you ever win
A#m    D#    B                       C#
..Manchild, look at the state you're in, yeah
A#m    D#   C#                B
..Manchild, he will make you cry
A#m   D#    A#m    D#   A#m    D# 
..Manchild,...Manchild,...Manchild
          B            C#
He's the apple of your eye

[Outro]
      C#  
Once bitten, twice shy, why don't you bite me again?
      A    
Just take it in the right and go tell your friend
         B            
Are you ready for the words? I turn the microphone on
   G#m                                             C#m
A figure of speech to reach you at the back and so on

The style I'm stimulating dance floors
 A
Raise your body temperature now and
                  B    
This demands for power in the amp, you know loud's my diagnosis
       G#m
'Cause I believe in miracles, words in heavy doses
