Tabbed by Matt Giesmann

================================================================================
Notes:
Arron's phrasing is hard to keep up with.  The chords are over the right words,
but it might be necessary to listen to how he is singing each line.

Verses:     Bm F#m D E
Choruses :  A E D E         (twice as long on each chord, strumming opens up)
Interlude:  Bm F#m x3 D A
================================================================================

[Verse 1]
Bm             F#m
Through mostly vacant streets
D                E                  Bm
A baker from the outskirts of his town
           F#m             D
Earned his living peddling sweets
              E                 Bm           
From a ragged cart he dragged around
           F#m               D
The clever fox crept close behind
        E             Bm
Kept an ever watchful eye
                F#m            D
For a chance to steal a ginger spice cake
     E           Bm F#m D E
Or a boysenberry pie


[Verse 2]
Bm      F#m                 D
Looking down was the hungry crow:
          E                   Bm
"When the time is right, I'll strike
         F#m                  D
And condescend to the earth below
              E              Bm
And take whichever treat I'd like"
               F#m           D
The moment the baker turned around
            E                Bm
To shoo the fox off from his cart
                 F#m                 D
The crow swooped down and snatched a shortbread cookie
      E                 A
And a German chocolate tart


[Chorus 1]
                      E              
Using most unfriendly words
                                      D
That the village children had not yet heard
                             E
The baker shouted threats by canzonette
                    A
To curse the crafty bird
                          E
"You rotten wooden mixing spoon
                         D
Why, you midnight-winged raccoon
                                E
You better bring those pastries back
                              Bm  F#m D E   Bm  F#m D E 
You no-good burned-black macaroon"


[Verse 3]
Bm              F#m 
The fox approached the tree
          D                  E              Bm
Where the bird was perched delighted in his nest
                F#m                    D
"Brother Crow, don't you remember me?
                     E                   Bm
It's your old friend Fox with a humble request
             F#m                 D
If you could share just a modest piece
               E                  Bm
Seeing as I distracted that awful man" 
                  F#m                  D                     
This failed to persuade the crow in the least
             E        
So the fox rethought his plan


[Verse 4]
Bm                   F#m                 D
"Then if your lovely song would grace my ears
      E                Bm
Or to even to hear you speak
              F#m
Would ease my pains and fears!"
    D                         E            Bm
The crow looked down with the candy in his beak
               F#m             D
"Your poems of wisdom, my good crow
       E             Bm
What a paradise they bring!"
              F#m             
This flattery pleased the proud bird
D                E                  A
So he opened his mouth and began to sing:


[Chorus 2]
                           E
"Your subtle acclamation's true
                                    D
Best to give praise where praise is due
                           E
Every rook and jay in the Corvidae's
                     A
Been ravin' about me too
                        E
They admire me, one and all
                          D
Must be the passion in my caw
                                     E
My slender bill known throughout the escadrille
                     Bm F#m 
My fierce commanding claw!"


[Interlude]
Bm F#m Bm F#m D E


[Chorus 3]
A                      E
I got a walnut brownie brain
                   D
And molasses in my veins

Crushed graham cracker crust
   E                              A
My powdered sugared funnel cake cocaine
                        E 
Let the crescent cookie rise
                           D
These carob-colored almond eyes
                              E
Would rest to see my cashewed princess
                       A
In the swirling marble sky
                    E
Would rest upon the knee
                                  D
Where all of the visions cease to be
                           E
A root-beer float in our banana boat
                   A
Across the tapioca sea
                             E
When letting all attachments go
                      D
Is the only prayer we know

May it be so
          E
May it be so
         
May it be so
   A
Oh
