Fadd9 | Fadd9

C                              F/G
  It's getting better all the time.

Verse 1:
  G            C/G           G   C/G
I used to get mad with my school
     G             C/G               G    C/G
The teachers that taught me weren't cool,
        G          C/G   G          C/G
You're holding me down, turning me round,
 G         C/G           G     C
Filling me up with your rules.

Chorus:
      C                         Fadd9
I've got to admit it's getting better;
          Em             Fadd9
A little better all the time.
   C                          Fadd9
I have to admit it's getting better,
              Em            Fadd9       Fmaj7
It's getting better, since you've been mine.

Me used to be angry young man,
    G         C/G         G    C/G
Me hiding me head in the sand,
     G           C/G     G      C/G
You gave me the word, I finally heard,

I'm doing the best that I can.

I used to be cruel to my woman,
I beat her and kept her apart
From the things that she loved.
Man, I was mean, but I'm changing my scene,
And I'm doing the best that I can.

A little better all the time.

It's getting better, since you've been mine.
