Verse 1

Am    C        F       A  G Cm           G#       D#       F#m    B       D
We cut all his eyes we did, squeezed the lids and down the grog into hole he
     F         G#   A#    E      G    B   A    G      D         Bm
skip with crow eyed smile to the blissful into craggy dress and we will
G          Bm      G          C#m     F#    D     A   A  C#m F#
praise him we will praise him off his pins, clear him of all sins
Bm C# C#/C          C#/A#             A# A#/A        A#/G         A# A#/A
Oh my! We sang with strength to carry on, encouraged him to sing along, we
        A#/G              F#
sang of all the world and praised him hooray!
B         A D A            F   G#  Gm     C         A# D# A#        F# A G#m
Stay alive      to live or without,   and he is down,       all over and out

(Then repeat the intro once instead of twice, then into the 2nd verse)

Am           C             F           A    G
Watch us bang on shoulders as tall and as gold as
Cm         G#    D#     F#m
Feely hand and finger around all we
B        D      F     G# A# E     G  B  A   G            D
And look to see if we care  if he is heaven sent or Hell bent but
Bm      G          Bm      G          C#m F#  D      A   A   C#m F#
We will praise him we will praise him all away praise him all a - way
Bm C# C#/C       C#/A#           A# A#/A          A#/G        A# A#/A
My arms chancing and you will no way      live long enough to repay me
             A#/G   F#
I praise you anyway always

(Then into the really long bit. It's the same chord progression over and over, but each 
moving up in semitones)

B         A D A              F G# Gm C        A# D# A#           F# A G#m
Wipes last    with brown and pale,   he dirty boy       he gone all stale
    C#          B E B          G  A#  Am     D          C F C
And down the stair and hallway crawling, and pig and toast and kitchen
  G# B A#m
D#       C# F# C#           A    C Bm E        D G D          A# C# Cm
Night-time     days are all weekless, alarm charm he's all up and dressed
   F       D# G# D#          B D C#m F#             E A E             C D#Dm
He dirty boy,    he bathroom dances, and check his jam and breathe on glass

A            B    A#       A C#            E    E    A    D   G    D#   E
Spiny brings all, off "Mr. Regal Jelly" in hand, warm feel and suck re - gal
A   D    G      D    G     B   A            C#              B
man suck bland, suck bland a - way and he a sleepy cow-eyed dog he treading
E    A                C   F#        D                              B
soft sand                           Kiss and stroke and praise him, stroke
    A                 E   A         F            D      F C F
and praise him                      All worth is kiss not how to cleanse and
D     F            D        F  C F          D
fowl, preserver of sick somehow, don't worry now
B                  A#             F   C#       E   G#m   C#
Hold his mouth and stop him breathing over and out

(The outro plays those final three chords over and over, the time signature changes, 
just a case of playing it over and over and a pattern starts emerging)

Such an epic tune, hope you enjoy it.
