Intro: [Am  D7]  [G  Cmaj7]  [F  Dm]  [E    (Esus4 Riff)]


[Am                     D7]      [G
Now that I've lost everything to you
                     Cmaj7          [F
You say you want to start something new
             Dm]                  [E        (Esus4 Riff)]
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving, baby I'm grieving
[Am                     D7]      [G
But if you want to leave take good care
                Cmaj7]               [F
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
            Dm]                    [E   G   ] (G7 Riff)
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there


Chorus:
[C         G]             [F        (F Riff)]
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
[G                  F]         [C   (C Riff)]
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
[C        G]         [F             (F Riff)]
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
[G             F]              [C         Dm  E]
I'll always remember you like a child, girl


You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
Cuz I never want to see you sad girl. Don't be a bad girl
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware


[C        G]         [F             (F Riff)]
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
[G                  F]         [C   (C Riff)]
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
[C        G]         [F             (F Riff)]
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
[G             F]              [C         Dm  E]
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

Wild World - Cat Stevens
Yusuf Islam (born Steven Demetre Georgiou, 21 July 1948), commonly known by his former stage name Cat Stevens, is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist, and prominent convert to Islam.

His early 1970s record albums Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat were both certified triple platinum in the United States by the RIAA. His 1972 album Catch Bull at Four sold half a million copies in the first two weeks of release alone and was Billboard's number-one LP for three consecutive weeks. He has also earned two ASCAP songwriting awards in consecutive years for "The First Cut Is the Deepest", which has been a hit single for four different artists.

Stevens converted to Islam in December 1977 and adopted the name Yusuf Islam the following year. In 1979, he auctioned all his guitars for charity and left his music career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community. He has been given several awards for his work in promoting peace in the world, including the 2003 World Award, the 2004 Man for Peace Award, and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace. In 2006, he returned to pop music with his first album of new pop songs in 28 years, entitled An Other Cup. He now goes professionally by the single name Yusuf. His most recent album, Roadsinger, was released on 5 May 2009.
