words and music by Howard Ashby Kranz

††††††† C†††††††††††††† G††††††††† Am†††† F††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† C†††† G††

1.Working all day for a dollar; every dayís dollar buys less!

†††††††††† C†††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††

Grind more grimy rings in my collar, deep into the permanent press.

††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† †††G††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††† G7

The door slams and the neighbor kids holler, and the water billís an insane mess.

††††††† C†††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G†††††††††† ††††††††C†††††††

Iím drowning in tedium and squalor, and Iím late for my workshop on stress.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††† G†††††††† C††††††††††††††† FG†††††††† G

Chorus:But if we all whine together, if we all whine together,

†††††††††††††††††† †††††F††† G†††††† C†††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† C

††††††††††††† If we all whine together, well it probably wonít help much anyway.††

††††† C††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††† C†††† G††

2.Nobody cares about my brilliance, no one gives a darn about art.

††† C†††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††

I write superb songs by the jillions, and Iím still just beginning to start.

††† ††††††††F†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††† G7

While brainless fluff written by children is carelessly climbing the charts,

††††††† C††††††††† G††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G†††††††† ††††C†††††††

My poetry is timeless as Miltonís, but I still have to shop at K-mart.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††† G†††††††† C††††††††††††††† FG†††††††† G

Chorus:But if we all whine together, if we all whine together,

††††††††††††††††††††††† F††† G†††††† C†††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† C

††††††††††††† If we all whine together, well it probably wonít help much anyway.††

††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† C†††† G††

3.Now the sun shines like gold on the wicked, and the rain falls in pails on the just.

†††††††††† C†††††††††††††† G†††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††

But I drag myself out of my sickbed, cough the phlegm up, and swab out the pus.

††††††† F††††††††††††† G††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††† G7

Iím hungry and fat and addicted, and my whole life is preposterous,

††††††† C†††††††††††††† G††††††††††† †††††††Am††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† C†††††††

But I just rub the lumps on my thick head, and think up some more dreams to get crushed.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††† G†††††††† C††††††††††††††† FG†††††††† G

Chorus:But if we all whine together, if we all whine together,

††††††††††††††††††††††† F††† G†††††† C†††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† C

††††††††††††† If we all whine together, well it probably wonít help much anyway.††
