| E | C#m | B | B | E | G#m | A | A |

         E                             B
It's the last year of the Blue Men who watchdog Part Two Heaven
A                           E
Giving way to young ones in nineteen ninety seven
    E                             F#m
Who follow in their footsteps and wear the breathing masks
    E               B              A               E
And answer all your questions, and ration out your tasks

              C#m             G#m       F#m            E
There will be time enough for love, and room enough to play
    E               B          A             E
For planting Pieces babies, or passing time away
              C#m             G#m          F#m             E
There will be time enough for thought, and room enough for words
     E                 B            A                  E
That float like pillow feathers and sing just like the birds

E                           B
Stock up your provisions, devise a shell rock shelter
      A                             E
Where jovial ceilings smile down on every room you enter
      E                            F#m
Paint windows in your gardens, and windmills on your doors
    E             B           A             E
And lock away the memory that Daddy died in war

              C#m             G#m       F#m            E
There will be time enough for love, and room enough to play
    E               B          A             E
For planting Pieces babies, or passing time away

. Turn in your number for a color bye
A          G#m           F#                B   - A - G#m - F#m 
Trade in tomorrow's cake . for yesterday's pie - i - i --- i

         E                               B
It's the last year of the full moon that shines on Part Two Heaven
    A                                 E
But we still play the moon songs from nineteen fifty seven
    E                         F#m
The files of pleasure photos, recall us to our prime
    E              B           A                    C#m
And rock-a-bye us, lullabye us back to the good old times


1973 Kangaroo Music
Charted by Dexex


Note: In the recording I have, the whole song is a little sharp. If
you play along with the recording on a guitar tuned with a digital
tuner you'll find the chords in the chart just a little low. If you
play the song a half step higher you'll find the half step is too
high.

I suspect that the record's producers wanted a little more energy
from the track, and so sped it up just a little. Speeding up the
track would also make it just a little bit higher in pitch. This was
not an unusual practice when the track was recorded in 1973.

To test my theory I used iRehearse, which is a digital phrase trainer
that allows you to change the pitch and/or tempo of digital sound
files. (It's a great rehearsal tool.)

By lowering the pitch about 1/2 semi-tone (aka -50 "cents") I was
able to bring the recording back into perfect tune.
