A Miracle

C   F   C               There’s a family   who I love:

C   F   C               my beautiful wife and my nutty sons. 

Am   G   C   F      It’s nothing short           of a miracle 

C   G   C               I get to love them all at once.

 

F      C                  They might think I’m annoying 

F      C                  when out of tune I sing

F      C                  or when I toot      in the evening. 

Am   G   C           I just gotta           let it out,

Am   G   C           just like my love   I gotta shout. 

Am   G   C   F      Hopefully when I fart out of key

Am   G   C           my family will also love me. 

 

C   F   C               There’s a place     I want to be. 

C   F   C               Luckily I can        go and see. 

Am   G   C   F      It’s nothing short           of a miracle 

C   G   C               though it might     not be easy. 

 

F      C                  Like taking a ride on a winter train,

F      C                  or flying high        in an aeroplane

F      C                  and all the ways we can get around

Am   G   C           from two feet        to bicycles

Am   G   C           with the miracle    of muscles

Am   G   C   F      pumping our blood, feeding our cells 

Am   G   C           so we’re not stuck         in the ground. 

 

Dm      Am           It’s magical,

C         G              though not literal.

Dm      G   C   F   It's definitely a miracle   since it

Am   G   C           makes me feel sentimental. 

 

C   F   C               There’s a word     I wanna say

C   F   C               to whoever made  things this way

Am   G   C   F      It’s nothing short           of a miracle 

C   G   C               so “Thanks!”        I must convey. 

 

F      C                  What a wonderful world I’ve been given

F      C                  or at least allowed                   to live in

F      C                  I couldn’t think of          a better place

Am   G   C           or family     to live with

Am   G   C           when they’re away        I always miss. 

Am   G   C   F      We’re making our way and finding our bliss

Am   G   C           and always returning     to base. 

 

C   F   C              

C   F   C              

Am   G   C   F      It’s nothing short           of a miracle 

C   G   C               so “Thanks!”        I must convey.
