Get out your measuring cups and we'll play a new game
             D            A              bm            G
Come to the front of the class and we'll measure your brain
                  D                 E
We'll give you a complex and we'll give it a name

Can't have the cream when the crop and the cream are the same
           D                    E
Liquid or gas no more than the glass will contain
       G                D
When you talk about the hand of glory
   A                  bm
A tale that's rather grim and gory
      G               D                      E
Is it just another children's story that's been de-clawed?
          G                 D                   E
When the tales of brothers Grimm and Gorey have been outlawed

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

D         A      bm          G
Measuring cups, play a new game
D             A      bm            G
Front of the class, measure your brain
             D                E
Give you a complex and we'll give it a name
         G               D
When you talk about the hand of glory
   A                  bm
A tale that's rather grim and gory
       G             D                      E
Is it just another children's story that's been de-clawed?
         G                  D                   E
When the tales of brothers Grimm and Gorey have been outlawed

G                 D                 A
Put your backpack on your shoulder
            bm
Be the good little soldier
G                  D
It's no different when your older
        E
You're predisposed
G                        gm
That's all for questions now
               D
The case is closed!
