Wordplay Chords
    ______________
   / Jason Mraz  /  This song was the first single off the Mr. A-Z album. There
  / Wordplay    /  were great expectations from the record company and the rest
 / Mr. A-Z     /  of the industry for this album to be a financial success. Here
/_____________/  Mraz expresses the dilemma of holding on to the innocence in
                music when he is expected to make a serious commercial success.

 Chorus (fade out on Cadd9)

I've been all around the world
I've been a new sensation
But it doesn't really matter in this ge-generation
The sophomore slump is an uphill battle
And someone said that ain't my scene
'Cause they need a new song
Like a new religion
Music for the television
I can't do the long division
Someone do the math
For the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezer
Got to find another way to live the life of leisure
So I drop my top
Mix and I mingle
Is everybody ready for the single and it goes

Ha-la-la-la-la
Now listen closely to the verse I lay
Ha-la-la-la-la
It's all about the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-love
The wonderful thing it does
Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah, the Mister A to Z
They say I'm all about the wordplay

When it's time to get ill, I got your remedy
For those who don't remember me
Well, let me introduce you to my style
I try to keep a jumble
And the lyrics never mumble
When the music's makin' people tongue-tied
You want a new song
Like a new religion
Music for the television
I can't do the long division
Someone do the math
For the people write me off like I'm a one-hit wonder
Gotta find another way to keep from goin' under
Pull out the stops
Got your attention
I guess it's time again for me to mention the wordplay

Ha-la-la-la-la
Now listen closely to the verse I lay
Ha-la-la-la-la
It's all about the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-love
The wonderful thing it does
Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah, the Mister A to Z
They say I'm all about the wordplay

I built a bridge across the stream my consciousness
It always seems to be a flowin'
But I don't know which way my brain is goin'
Oh the ryhmin' and the timin'
Keeps the melodies inside me
And they're comin'
Till I'm running out of air
Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head
Are you listening to a single word I've said

Ha-la-la-la-la
Listen closely to the words I say
Ha-la-la-la-la
I'm stickin' to the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-love
The wonderful thing it does
Because, because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah, the Mister A to Z
They say I'm all about the wordplay

Ha-la-la-la-la
I'm all about the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-la
Stickin' with the wordplay
Ha-la-la-la-love
I love the wonderful thing it does
Because, because the ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's fall back in love
For the Mister A to Z
They say is all about the wordplay
