But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
       C        C7          F          Fm
'Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
       Am
I'm so grateful and proud

All I want is to sing it out loud,  so I say

Well, who - ever it was, I'm   a     fan,   so I say


[Chorus]

E                 F#m        B7        E
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
C#m        C#m7    F#7         B7
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
E                F#m       G#m    C#m7     A
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
                Am
What would life be?
          E         E7             C#
Without a song or a dance what are we?
         F#m               A
So I say thank you for the music
    B7           E      Gdim     F#m7    B7
For giving it to me


[Bridge]

Am6          E               Am6              E
I've been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
        Am6     G#7   C#m   C#m7
I wanna sing it out to everybody
F#m7                     B7
What a joy, what a life, what a chance!


[Chorus]

E                 F#m        B7        E
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
C#m        C#m7    F#7         B7
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
E                F#m       G#m    C#m7     A
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
                Am
What would life be?
          E         E7             C#
Without a song or a dance what are we?
         F#m               A
So I say thank you for the music
    B7           E      Gdim     F#m7    B7
For giving it to me
