"YMCA" by the Village People

Verse 1:

[C]Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, [Am]young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, [Dm]young man, 'cause you're in a new town
There's no [G]need to be unhappy.

[C]Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, [Am]young man, when you're short on your dough.
You can [Dm]stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many [G]ways to have a good time.


It's fun to stay at the [C]Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the [Am]Y-M-C-A
They [Dm]have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can [G]hang out with all the boys

It's fun to stay at the [C]Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the [Am]Y-M-C-A
You can [Dm]get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal,
You can [G]do whatever you feel.

Verse 2:

[C]Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, [Am]young man, what do you want to be?
I said, [Dm]young man, you can make real your dreams,
But you've [G]got to know this one thing!

[C]No man does it all by himself
I said, [Am]young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just [Dm]go there, to the YMCA
I'm sure [G]they can help you today.


Verse 3:

[C]Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, [Am]I was down and out with the blues
I felt [Dm]no man cared if I were alive
I felt [G]the whole world was so tight

[C]That's when someone came up to me,
And said, [Am]young man, take a walk up the street
There's a [Dm]place there called the YMCA
They can [G]start you back on your way
