AM7 Bm7-5 AM7 Dalt D9 What's it all about, Al - fie? Bm7-5 AM7 Cdim F#m C#m7-5 F#7 Is it just for the moment we live? Bm7 Cdim AM7 F#m7 What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie? D9 Bm7-5 Cdim Fdim Are we meant to take more than we give? Bm7-5 D9 Bm7 E7/9 Or are we meant to be kind? Cdim E7/9 AM7 Bm7-5 AM7 Dalt D9 And if only fools are kind, Al - fie, Bm7-5 AM7 Cdim F#m C#m7-5 F#7 Then I guess that it's wise to be cruel; Bm7 Cdim AM7 F#m7 And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie, D9 Bm7 Cdim Bm7-5 G#7 What will you lend on an old Gol - den Rule? G#m7 Gdim Am7 F#m7 B7 C#7 As sure as I believe there's a Heaven above, Alfie, G#m7 Gdim Am7 I know there's something much more, F#m7 D9 Cdim Bm7-5 E7/9 Fdim Something even non-believers can believe in.
