[Verse]
     G        D    G       D
When I grow up to be a man
         G               D     G     D
Like my father was when I was young
   G             D     G             D
I hope I can make him so proud of me
  G                   D      G   D
Proud enough to call me his son

[Verse]
G                       D    C
 What makes these people so different now
G                             C      D
 What makes these times so strange?
G                   D       C
 Seems most people got most everything they need
G                       C
 How come we see this change
 
 
[Chorus]
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G             C               D           G   C
 When will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
 
 
[Verse]
G                 D        C
 When I was a boy, did we have more respect?
      G                     D       C
This world seemed a nicer place to be
     G                    D     C
But time slowly passes and one day you look around
     G              D        C
You hardly recognize what you see
 
 
[Chorus]
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G                 C               D           G   C
 Now when will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
 
G  G  Am7  Am7
                        Dm7   C
They're beyond our control
 
 
[Bridge]
Bm                      E
 We're all sons of our fathers
Bm                    E
 Sometimes I feel like mine
F#m                          C#m
 And I can hear him say, the things I say
            E                    D
Seems all things come around in time

[Verse]
G                               C         D
 Why these things happen we'll never know
        G                        C
Guess that was then and this is now
G                      C
 We always knew that change was gonna come
       G                       C
But I want to go back, please tell me how
 
 
[Chorus]
D                               Em    Am
 Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
D                      Em            Am
 Their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
G             C               D           G   C
 When will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
 
 
[Outro]

They're beyond our control

Oh, beyond our control

                  'It seems that family values have changed since I was a kid, at least I remember it that way...' 

When I grow up to be a man
like my father was when I was young
I hope i can make him so proud of me
Proud enough to call me his son

What makes these people so different now
what makes these times so strange?
seems most people got most everything they need
how come we see this change

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
when will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer

When I was a boy, did we have more respect?
this world seemed a nicer place to be
but time slowly passes and one day you look around
you hardly recognise what you see

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
now when will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer

They're beyond our control

We're all sons of our fathers
sometimes I feel like mine
and I can hear him say, the things I say
seems all things come around in time

Why these things happen we'll never know
guess that was then and this is now
we always knew that change was gonna come
but I want to go back, please tell me how

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they're losing their soul
when will we ever learn, yet I'm a believer
