Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
As usual tune your guitar a WHOLE STEP DOWN!!
(Try picking each string separate!)

                 E
In the court of Augustine The Twelfth
           B7
The king reprimanded his men
       B7
And demanded they 
         E
Put to good use all his wealth
    A           B
to cure his deep ennui

      E                             A          B
For you see, he found that he was sad and lonely
E                                    A          
Ever since his wife, the queen, got mad and
          B
Rode off on his steed

E   A    B x2    (underneath the cello/violin)

Finish with B Ringing
-----------------------
               E                                    
In a glen beyond the castle wall 
       B7
There was a tinker
       B7
And he was a thinker
            E
The smartest man in all the world
        A            B
He made a mechanical girl

E                                 A          B
For you see, his daughter passed away that summer
E                                       A          
And though he knew he could not replace her
          B
He missed his family
-------------------------------------------
(Staccato strumming)
          Am                           E
Suddenly a knock at the door went ra-ta-ta-ta-ta
          Am                            E
And the kingsmen came in blowing horns ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba

         Am
"By order of His Highness
         E
We're to take you and that...thing
         B
To present your marvel to the king."

E                         A                 B
And so, over glen and through the castle walls
E                             A          B
Over the moat, and into the great castle hall
                         B  B<-----let ring
When her master urged,
The robot girl emerged

E               A             B      x 2

                E
When the king laid eyes upon the girl
       B7
He was delighted
       B7
His men all were knighted
        E
He yelled aloud for all the world
     B                 A
"I'll take her for my queen!"
          E
And the man screamed
E                   A
"Please don't take my child!
 A              B
I beg you, mighty king!"
 E                            A
And they grabbed him by his tailcoat 
           B
And threw him in the moat

E      A          B
--------------------------------------
(staccato strumming)

           Am               
Later in their wedding bed 
           Em
The king was shocked to see
           Am
A tender kiss upon the cheek 
           Em
Unleashed an armory
          Am
Rocket launchers and flamethrowing guns
          Em
Grew from her sides
           B                 B
And she grew to seven times her size

Run!

(strum each around 4 times, power chords are welcome too)    

Em        C        G         Fm         Em      B7      Em          C          B   <---let ring
              
E             A             B x2          
        
               E
On the morn of August twenty-fourth
               B7
He was dejected when lest he expected
               E
A knock was heard upon the door
 A             B
It was his robot girl
E                               A          B
For you see, he'd made her indestructible
             E                             A          
It seems and she destroyed that awful kingdom
        B
And they lived happily.

E                                      
So you see, the moral of the story is:
        A          B
Never take a child away from a loving parent
E                                            A                       B
Especially not ones who make children who shoot rockets from their eyes

E         A        B  till end

End on E

Hope you enjoy this one more coming soon!!
