If it ain’t broke don’t fix it (and don’t fix it even if it is)     G7     C6  2 bars
             
My new phone is on the fritz and I’m alone in thinking it’s still under warranty C6   G#7  
             
And just foolin’ with the gadget makes me wanna take a hatchet to the darn thing G7   C6     Am7 Dm7       G7
             
My old car’s completely lame her brakes are shoddy and her body’s made of rust C6   G#7  
             
She’s long past being a beginner but she’ll last another winter if she must   G7   C6  
             
I used to try fixing that stuff, but I’d fail and walk off in a huff     Dm7      G7 C6 Dm7      G7 C6
             
After swearin a curse and makin it worse, my philosophy is this     F6         F#dim C6         G7 C6        Bb7 A7
             
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and don’t fix it even if it is     F6         F#dim C6          A7 D7          G7 C6
             
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it (and don’t fix it even if it is)     G7     C6  2 bars
             
solo over entire form            
             
My dear wife has often noticed that I haven’t the remotest notion     C6   G#7  
             
Not just about mechanics but about the whole dynamics of emotion     G7   C6     Am7 Dm7       G7
             
She greets me but I startle and it beats me why my heart’ll jump and slam   C6   G#7  
             
And I disappoint the missus if I press the point that this is how I am     G7   C6  
             
I wish there was more I could say, I guess I’m just wired this way     Dm7      G7 C6 Dm7      G7 C6
             
She thinks that it’s strange, she wants it to change, but my philosophy is this   F6         F#dim C6         G7 C6        Bb7 A7
             
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and don’t fix it even if it is     F6         F#dim C6          A7 D7          G7 C6  2 bars
             
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and don’t fix it even if it is     G7      
      C6 Bb7 A7 Ab7 G7       C6
