Verse 1
G             D         A              Em          G
Get out your measuring cups and we'll play a new game 
             D            A              Em            G
Come to the front of the class and we'll measure your brain 
                  D                 E
We'll give you a complex and we'll give it a name 
G             D         A              Em         G
Get out your measuring cups and we'll play a new game 
               D              A            Em              G
Can't have the cream when the crop and the cream are the same 
           D                    E
Liquid or gas no more than the glass will contain 

Chorus
       G                D 
When you talk about the hand of glory 
   A                  Em
A tale that's rather grim and gory 
      G               D                      E
Is it just another children's story that's been de-clawed? 
          G                 D                   E
When the tales of brothers Grimm and Gory have been outlawed 


Intro Chords (X2)
G - D - E

Verse 2
  G                    D             A
I think they're gonna make you start over 
           Em           G
You don't want to start over 
         D                 A
Put your backpack on your shoulder 
        Em           G  
Be the good little soldier 
            D
Take your places now 
                   E          
'Cause we're all predisposed 


G      D         A      Em          G
       Measuring cups, play a new game 
D             A      Em            G
Front of the class, measure your brain 
             D                E    
Give you a complex and we'll give it a name 
         G               D
When you talk about the hand of glory 
   A                  Em
A tale that's rather grim and gory 
       G             D                      E
Is it just another children's story that's been de-clawed? 
         G                  D                   E
When the tales of brothers Grimm and Gory have been outlawed 


G                 D                 A
Put your backpack on your shoulder 
            Em       
Be the good little soldier 
G                  D
It's no different when your older 
        E
You're predisposed 
G                        Bbm
That's all for questions now 
               D
The case is closed!
