Intro:
D / Bb / C

verse 1

D Long time ago in the land of Eden
Bb God invented livin' and breathin'
D G Only one rule I got so far...
D A D don't take a cookie from the cookie jar!
verse 2
D So it all began with Adam and Eve
Bb And the knowledge of the good and the evil tree
D G When a snake crawled into their backyard...
D A D Say.. let's all have a cookie from the cookie jar!

Chorus

D G D Who took the cookie from the cookie jar? A Bmin Where will it end? How did it start? D G Twist of the lid and here we are... D A D Shakin' hands in the cookie jar D G D Who took the cookie from the cookie jar? A Bmin Where will it end? How did it start? D G Twist of the lid and here we are... D A D Shakin' hands in the cookie jar verse 3
D So there in the garden where they were livin'
Bb Adam and Eve did the very first fibbin'
D G Up drive God in the Company Car
D A D Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
verse 4

D Banished from their paradise

Bb Followed by old beady eyes

D G Now even their kids've got to carry the scar...

D A D Cuttin' edge of the cookie jar

Chorus (as usual) followed by spoken:
Pick up that napkin: cover your face!
Crumbs are lyin' all over the place!
Gimme them feathers, where's that tar?
Somebody new is in the cookie jar!

instrumental break


verse 5

D For years and years this game's been played
Bb Lives been lost; fortunes made
D G Until at last the Morning Star
D A D Rose above the cookie jar
verse 6
D A vision of his Father's will
Bb He died and then rose further still

D G And now releases every heart
D A D Fallen in the cookie jar

Chorus
