(verse 1) 
G                    D/F# 
A mother riding on a city bus 
Em7                      D 
Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss 
Cadd9 
Everybody's staring 
     C/B                           D 
Not knowing what she's going through 
G                         D/F# 
  Somebody said don't you even care 
    Em7                      D 
And do you let them do that everywhere 
   Cadd9         C/B                          D 
She slowly turned  around, looked up and stared. 
 
 
 
(pre-cho) 
Em7                           Cadd9 
She said, 'Please forgive them They've been up all night' 
Em7                           Cadd9 
Their father struggled But he finally lost his fight 
Em7                      Cadd9 
He went to heaven In the middle of the night 
   Cadd9  C/B   Am  G        D 
So please for--give my children 
 
They don't understand.' 
 
 
 
 
(chorus) 
G                          D/F# 
Everybody's busy with their own situation 
Em7                        D 
Everybody's lost in their own little world 
Cadd9                   C/B                          D 
Bottled up, hurried up, trying to make a dream come true 
 
They don't understand 
G                             D/F# 
Everybody's livin' like there ain't no tomorrow 
Em7                           D 
Maybe we should stop and take a little time 
Cadd9                        C/B                           D 
Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through 
 
They don't understand. 
 
 
 
 
(verse 2) 
A man drivin on the interstate,  
slowin down traffic makin everybody late, 
Everybody's starin' not knowin what he's goin through, 
Sombody honked from the passin' lane, 
yelled out the window ain't got all day, 
The old man looked around and he caught his eye, 
 
 
(pre- cho) 
 
HE said please forgive me, 
you know it's been a real long life,  
My wife has passed away and my kids don't have the time, 
And I've been there long and it's gettin' hard to drive, 
So please forgive me children, 
They don't understand. 
 
 
 
(chorus) 
G                          D/F# 
Everybody's busy with their own situation 
Em7                        D 
Everybody's lost in their own little world 
Cadd9                   C/B                          D 
Bottled up, hurried up, trying to make a dream come true 
 
They don't understand 
G                             D/F# 
Everybody's livin' like there ain't no tomorrow 
Em7                           D 
Maybe we should stop and take a little time 
Cadd9                        C/B                           D 
Cause you never really know what your neighbor?s going through

(verse 3) 
G                 D/F# 
A man hangin on a wooden cross, 
Em7                   D 
Given everything to save the lost, 
Cadd9                   C/B                       D 
Everybody's starin not knowin what he's goin through, 
G                    D/F# 
Somebody said you don't have a prayer, 
Em7                      D 
If you're a king come on down from there, 
Cadd9                      C/B                     D 
The man just turned his head and looked up and stared, 
 
 
 
(pre-cho) 
Em7                                 Cadd9 
He said please forgive them, For they have not seen the light, 
Em7                           Cadd9 
They'll come to know me when I come back to life,   
Em7                           Cadd9 
The road to heaven to make everything alright, 
   Cadd9  C/B   Am   G         D 
So please for--give your children, 
 
They don't understand 
 
 
 
 
(chorus)

Everybody's lost in their own little world 
Cadd9                   C/B                          D 
Bottled up, hurried up, trying to make a dream come true 
 
They don't understand 
G                             D/F# 
Everybody's livin' like there ain't no tomorrow 
Em7                           D 
Maybe we should stop and take a little time 
Cadd9                        C/B                           D 
Cause you never really know what your neighbor?s going through 
 
They don't understand.

A mother riding on a city bus
