[Verse 1]
 C#                 G#m 
What a lovely day, Withers on the radio
 F#                     A                  B              
Birds are out to play, hear them sing in stereo
C#                G#m
I can see a rose bloom in my peripheral
 F#                    A                 B   
Earth between my toes makes me think of how we're finding

[Pre-Chorus]
C#                         G#m  
Cures to diseases in our driverless cars
        F#                         A         B   
We got plans for a trip to maybe settle on Mars
          C#                        G#m   
We keep building them bridges from shore to shore
           F#                         A       B      C#
And we’re living so much longer than ever before, so tell me

[Chorus]
                        
(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hhhhmmmm)
 B     F#   A             B    C#        
Why-ay-ay can’t we get along, baby?
                   
(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hmm)
 B     F#  A             B
Why-ay-ay can’t we get along?

[Verse 2]
C#                 G#m   
I hold up my hands, I ain’t always innocent
    F#                   A                B   
But I don’t understand fighting for the thrill of it
   C#                    G#m   
We try to make it work, harbouring our bitterness
     F#                   A                B   
But every time it hurts, makes me think of how we can

[Pre-Chorus]
C#                           G#m
Reach out to people from all over the world
     F#                               A          B
And things are getting better for our women and girls
        C#                          G#m  
We got skyscrapers built up to the heavens above
       F#                          A       B            C#
We got more people proudly saying love is love, so tell me

[Chorus]
 
(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hmm)
B     F#   A             B     C#     
Why-ay-ay can’t we get along, baby?

(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hmm)
B      F#  A            B                     C#   
Why-ay-ay why can’t we get, why can’t we get along, girl?

(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hmm)
B   F#    A             B     C#
....Uuh, can’t we get along, baby?

(Du du du du du du du, why-ay-ay, hmm)
B   F#  A              B 
Why....can’t we get along?

[Outro]
