                          "I'm Just A Bill"
			   ---------------
			  School House Rock


D             Em7      F                              Eb
(Kid) "Whew!  You sure gotta' climb a lotta' steps to get to this Capitol 
                       C                   G    Am  G
      building here in Washinton!  Well, I wonder who that sad little scrap 

      of paper is?" 

G
I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and I'm sittin' here on Capitol Hill
             C7
Well it's a long, long journey to the capitol city.  It's a long, long wait 
                                       D
while I'm sittin' in committee - but I know I'll be a law someday, at least 
       Em   F                       Eb                      C
I hope and pray that I will, but today I am still just a bill.


            G      Am      G
(Kid) "Gee, Bill, you certainly have a lot of patience and courage."

(Bill) "Well, I got this far.  When I started I wasn't even a bill, I was

       just an idea.  Some folks back home decided they wanted a law passed, 
								   C7
       so they called their local congressman and he said, 'You're right, 

       there ought to be a law.'  Then he sat down, wrote me out, and 

       introduced me to Congress, and I became a bill - and I'll remain a 
	     D
       bill until they decide to make me a law."

   
G
I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and I got as far as Capitol Hill.
	      C7
Well now, I'm stuck in committee, and I'll sit here and wait, while a
					       D
few key congressmen discuss and debate whether they should let me be a law.
	   Em7  F
How I hope and pray that they will, but today I am still just a bill.

       G
(Kid) "Listen to those congressmen arguing!  Is all that discussion and debate

      about you?"

(Bill) "Yeah, I one of the lucky ones.  Most bills never get this far.  I
					     C7
       hope they decide to report favorably, otherwise I may die."

(Kid) "Die?" 
			     G
(Bill) "Yeah, die in committee.  Ooh, but it looks like I'm gonna' live.
			D
       Now I go to the House of Represenatives and they vote on me."
	C7
(Kid) "If they vote 'Yes,' what happens?"
		G
(Bill) "Then I go to the Senate and the whole thing starts all over again."
	D
(Kid) "Oh, no."

(Bill) "Oh, yes!"


G
I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill, and if they vote for me on Capitol Hill,
	       C7
well, then I'm off to the White House, where I'll wait in a line with a lot
						     D
of other bills for the President to sign, and if he signs me then I'll be a law
           Em7  F			Eb		      C
How I hope and pray that he will, but today I am still just a bill.


		 G     Am    G
(Kid) "You mean, even if the whole Congress says you should be a law,
	G
      the President can still say no?"

(Bill) "Yes.  That's called a 'veto.'  If the President vetoes me, I'll

       have to go back to Congress and they vote on me again, and by that

       time you're so old, you...
	C7							  D 
(Kid) "By that time it's very unlikely that you'll become a law.  It's not

      easy to become a law, is it?" 

(Bill) "No..."

	       Em7  F 			  Eb			 C
But how I hope and pray that I will, but today I am still just a bill.


(Congressman) "He signed you, Bill.  Now you're a law."

(Bill) "Oh yes!"
