Poor Unfortunate Souls

Intro: Cm9  Cm9/G  

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty 
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a witch 
            G7(sus4)/D G7(sus4) 
But you'll find that nowadays 
G7(sus4)/D          G7(sus4) 
I've mended all my ways 
G#                  C#                G    G7 
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch 
    Cm9                                Cm9/G 
And I fortunately know a little magic 
It's a talent that I always have possessed 
         G7(sus4)/D          G7(sus4) 
And dear lady, please don't laugh 
  G7(sus4)/D   G7(sus4) 
I use it on behalf 
          G#            C#                G7sus4   G/F 
Of the miserable, the lonely, and depressed (pathetic) 

Cm9     G7(b9)    Cm9 
Poor unfortunate souls 
    Dm7(b5)   G7      Cm9 
In pain,                in need 
    Dm7(b5)             G7 
This one longing to be thinner 
    Cm9                    Cm/Eb 
That one wants to get the girl 
And do I help them? 
Dm7(b5)    G7 
Yes,    indeed 
Cm9     G7(b9)    Cm9 
Those poor unfortunate souls 
   Dm7(b5)      G7 Cm9 
So sad,         so true 
          Dm7(b5)         G7 
They come flocking to my cauldron 
Crying, "Spells, Ursula, please!" 
      Dm7(b5)   G7 
And I help      them! 
Yes I do 

Now it's happened once or twice 
Someone couldn't pay the price 
                G7sus4  G7                  C 
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals 
Yes I've had the odd complaint 
            G#               C# 
But on the whole I've been a saint 
         Cm/G    G7        Cm9 
To those poor unfortunate souls 

Cm Cm/G 
Have we got a deal? 

( Dm9  Dm9/A ) 

The men up there don't like a lot of blabber 
They think a girl who gossips is a bore! 
        Em7(5b)          A7         Em7(5b)             A7 
Yet on land it's much prefered for ladies not to say a word 
           A#                Eb          A7   A/G 
And after all dear, what is idle babble for? 
Come on, they're not all that impressed with conversation 
True gentlemen avoid it when they can 
        Em7(5b)              A7       Em7(5b)         A7 
But they dote and swoon and fawn on a lady who's withdrawn 
              A#       D#                  A7 A/G 
It's she who holds her tongue who get's a man 

            Dm9  A7(b9)      Dm9 
Come on you poor unfortunate soul 
    Em7(b5)   A7            Dm9 
Go ahead! Make your choice! 
      Em7(b5)   A7           Dm9            Dm9/F 
I'm a very busy woman and I haven't got all day 
It won't cost much 
Just your voice! 

    Dm9   A7(b9)      Dm9 
You poor unfortunate soul 
     Em7(b5)   A7             Dm9 
It's sad                 but true 
        Em7(5b)          A7 
If you want to cross the bridge, my sweet 
You've got the pay the toll 
       Em7(5b)          A7 
Take a gulp and take a breath 
       Em7(5b)          A7 
And go ahead and sign the scroll 
    Em7(5b)             A7 
Flotsam, Jetsam, now I've got her, boys 
    Dm      F7+/C Dm/B 
The boss is on a  roll 
     A#9   A7          Dm 
This poor unfortunate soul
