Verse 1:

CCCCCC  555555  777777
He      is      three

             999800
One's in the middle unmoved

777777     797877
Waiting to show what he sees

       777777
To the other two

       777600
To the one attacking

   333333
So afraid

        353433                            333333
And the one that keeps trying to love and trust

    353433          333333
And getting himself betrayed

777777 797877    999999     9B9A99
In the plan, oh, the divine plan

0|||||   ||7777 Harmonic
God must be a boogie man!

Verse 2:

CCCCCC  555555  777777
One's   so      sweet

          999800
So overly loving and gentle

   777777               797877           777777
He lets people into his innermost sacred temple

      777600
Blind faith to care

      333333
Blind rage to kill

353433                     333333  353433
Why'd he let them talk him down to cheap work

    333333
And cheap thrills?

777777 797877    999999        9B9A99
In the plan, oh, the insulting plan

0|||||   ||7777 Harmomic
God must be a boogie man!

777777  777600  333333  353433  333333  353433 etc.

Verse 3:

CCCCCC  555555   777777
Which   would it be

Mingus,

       999800
One or two or three

777777                      797877
Which one do you think he'd want

777777
The world to see

      777600                333333
Well, world opinion's not a lot of help

       353433                               333333
When a man's only trying to find out how to feel 

353433
About himself

777777       797877
In the plan, oh,

999999        9B9A99
The cock-eyed plan,

0|||||   ||7777 Harmonic
God must be a boogie man!
