Reviewing The Situation
If you don't want to play the Gm7b5 (3x332x), a Bbm works too. And if you have a problem with barre chords
it might be easier to transpose it down to Em.

[Verse 1]
  Fm                C7
A man's got a heart, hasn't he?
 Gm7b5  C7             Fm 
Joking apart -- hasn't he?
           Bbm         Bbm7          Eb7                  Ab
And though I'd be the first one to say that I wasn't a saint
    G7                                           Gm7b5  C7
I'm finding it hard to be really as black as they paint

    Fm
I'm reviewing the situation
                                   C7
Can a fellow be a villain all his life
All the trials, and tribulation
                                     Fm
Better settle down and get myself a wife

C7   Fm                  C7
And a wife would cook and sew for me
    Fm              C7
And come for me, and go for me
    Fm           C7
And go for me and nag at me
    Fm            C7
The fingers she will wag at me

    Fm            C7
The money she will take from me
  Bbm             C7
A misery, she'll make from  me...
  Fm               C7          Fm       C7
I think I'd better think it out again!

[Verse 2]
  Fm                C7
A wife you can keep, anyway
 Gm7b5      C7       Fm
I'd rather sleep, anyway
         Bbm     Bbm7         Eb7                      Ab
Left without anyone in the world and I'm starting from now
    G7                                           Gm7b5  C7
So how to win friends and to influence people, so how

    Fm
I'm reviewing the situation
                                   C7
I must quickly look up everyone I know
Titled people, with a station
                                     Fm
Who can help me make a real impressive show

C7     Fm                 C7
I will own a suite at Claridge's
    Fm              C7
And run a fleet of carriages
    Fm           C7
And wave at all the duchesses
    Fm            C7
With friendliness, as much as is

    Fm            C7
Befitting of my new estate
  Bbm                  Gm7b5     C7
"Good morrow to you, magistrate!" ...
  Fm               C7            Fm      C7
I think I'd better think it out again

[Verse 3 - skipped in soundtrack version]
  Fm                C7
So where shall I go -- somebody?
 Gm7b5   C7          Fm
Who do I know? Nobody!
        Bbm         Bbm7          Eb7                      Ab
All my dearest companions have always been villains and thieves
    G7                                           Gm7b5  C7
So at my time of life I should start turning over new leaves?

    Fm
I'm reviewing the situation
                                   C7
If you want to eat, you've got to earn a bob
Is it such a humiliation
                                     Fm
For a robber to perform an honest job

C7   Fm                  C7
So a job I'm getting, possibly
    Fm              C7
I wonder who my boss'll be?
    Fm           C7
I wonder if he'll take to me?
    Fm            C7
What bonuses he'll make to me?

    Fm            C7
I'll start at eight and finish late
  Bbm                  Gm7b5     C7
At normal rate, and all, but wait
  Fm               C7          Fm      C7
I think I'd better think it out again

[Verse 4]
  Fm                C7
What happens when I'm seventy
 Gm7b5      C7        Fm
Must come a time, seventy
            Bbm            Bbm7          Eb7                       Ab
When you're old, and it's cold and who cares if you live or you die
    G7                                           Gm7b5  C7
Your one consolation's the money you may have put by

    Fm
I'm reviewing the situation
                                    C7
I'm a bad one and a bad one I shall stay
You'll be seeing no transformation
                                     Fm
But it's wrong to be a rogue in every way

C7     Fm                  C7
I don't want nobody hurt for me
    Fm              C7
Or made to do the dirt for me
    Fm           C7
This rotten life is not for me
    Fm            C7
It's getting far too hot for me
    Fm            C7
There is no in between for me
  Bbm                  Gm7b5     C7
But who will change the scene for me

[Outro]
  Fm               Bbm
Don't want no one to rob for me
  Gm7b5           C7
But who will find a job for me?
  Fm               C7          Fm      [C7]
I think I'd better think it out again!    [Hey!]
