Measuring Cups  Andrew Bird



[G]  [D]  [A]  [D]  [G]  [D]  [A]  [D]                       
[G]Get out your m[D]easuring c[A]ups and we'll p[D]lay a new g[G]ame
Come to the f[D]ront of the c[A]lass and we'll [D]measure your [G]brain
We'll give you a c[D]omplex and we'll g[E]ive it a name
[G]Get out your m[D]easuring c[A]ups and we'll p[D]lay a new [G]game
Can't have the [D]cream when the [A]crop and the [D]cream are the s[G]ame
Liquid or g[D]as no more than the g[E]lass will contain
When yo[G]u talk about the [D]hand of glory
A t[A]ale that's rather g[D]rim and gory
Is it [G]just another chi[D]ldren's story that's be[E]en de-clawed?
When the t[G]ales of brothers G[D]rimm and Gorey have [E]been outlawed
I [G]think they're gonna m[D]ake you start [A]over
You don't w[D]ant to start [G]over
Put your [D]backpack on your s[A]houlder
Be the g[D]ood little s[G]oldier
Take your pl[D]aces now
'Cause we're all pr[E]edisposed  [G]
[D]Measuring [A]cups, p[D]lay a new g[G]ame
[D]Front of the c[A]lass, m[D]easure your b[G]rain
Give you a co[D]mplex and we'll g[E]ive it a name
When you [G]talk about the h[D]and of glory
A t[A]ale that's rather g[D]rim and gory
Is it j[G]ust another ch[D]ildren's story that's b[E]een de-clawed?
When the [G]tales of brothers G[D]rimm and Gorey have [E]been outlawed
[G]Put your backpack [D]on your shoulder  [A]
Be the good [D]little soldier
[G]It's no different w[D]hen your older
You're p[E]redisposed
[G]That's all for questions [Bb]now
The case is clo[D]sed!
