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

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

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


C      G         D      Am          C
       Measuring cups, play a new game

Give you a complex and we'll give it a name 
         C               G
When you talk about the hand of glory 
   D                  Am
A tale that's rather grim and gory 
       C             G                      A
Is it just another children's story that's been de-clawed? 
         C                  G                   A
When the tales of brothers Grimm and Gory have been outlawed

Be the good little soldier

It's no different when your older 
        A
You're predisposed 
C                        D#m
That's all for questions now 
               G
The case is closed!


A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything. 
-Friedrich Nietzsche
