G                                    D
  Get in line, keep in time with the Drum

                                      G
& don't forget you're nothing yet but water.

                             D
Are you coming to or coming  from

                                         C
the understanding that I'm handing it to you?

                                 G
Or is that a job you don't dare  do?

                                  C
Hey, my pretty flower, there's a  letter for you

                        G
you'll find it on the   shelf

                    F
Well though it was  posted in Calcutta

                                      G                  
I know it's just another that you've  written to yourself

G            D                 C                D
 We watched a  distant drummer flashing

G       D                C                      D
 on the beat in all his  parrot fashions.



G                                  D
 Get in line keep in time with the Drum

                                      G
& Don't forget you're nothing yet but water

                                          D
Don't move your feet until the next beat  comes 

                            C
One of the laws says pause between
   
                                   G
I would hate to make the game seem mean

                              C
Hey my pretty flower can you  guess where I've been?
 
                  G              
Can you guess at  all?

               F
Well I've been to your rooms and learned

                                             G
you have all the mirrors turned against the  wall.

G             D               C                D
 We watched a distant drummer flashing

G       D                C                     D
 on the beat in all his parrot fashions.

G                              "D for Drum!"
 Listen now to the sound of the Drum -

                                      G
& don't forget we're nothing yet but  water.

                                               D
It won't be pleasant when the present time is  done

                                           C
testing nightly 'neath a sprightly summer  moon

                               G
your spirit like a jelly in a  spoon.

                                C
Hey ma pretty flower there's a  cat in the room

                            G
& it's not the type you're  used to

          F
Though I  think I led it to the sink


& tried to make it drink

     G
it refused to. 


G      D         G       D       G       D      G      D      G   
             woohlalalaalalalalalalala
          


*The earlier version of this song is different at this part as follows:

Bridge:-----B----------------Am-----------

(all Barre Chords:)

G               F                 A# (6th fret)             G
One one money   two one show      three la la la la     Be- four wanna go
 
Sorry I can't understand what Dagmar Krause is singing here, but these chords work!
