(play riff throughout the verses)

D                    C
Somewhere in Africa, somewhere in Rome
D                   C
People are sleeping awake in their homes
D                        C
Waiting for shepherds to tend to their sheep
D                         C
Their disappointments lay piled in a corner heap

(main riff)

D                         C
Turn on the sets and then wait for the show
D                          C
Will he have long hair and what will he know?
D                          C
Will he tell jokes or will he make us cry?
D                       C
If we write to him will he send back a reply?


(chorus)
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
(it will come in!)


(main riff)

D                C
Like everybody I wait for the day
D                   C
Like everybody I'll send him away
D                  C
He may be ugly and have problem hair
D                    C
Even speak funny and make all the people stare
D
A second co - ming will come in
C
A second co - ming will come in
D
A second co - ming will come in
C
A second co - ming will come in


D      C
Second coming...
