D U D U U D U D U D U U D U D = Down stroke U = Up stroke This is a method (hopefully not too dodgey) showing you the use of the open D and G strings throughout the song, the note position, and the strumming pattern. If you're listening to the song while reading this, it should be crystal clear. If none of that matters to you, continue on for simple chords.

Verse 1

BmSince the beFginning of time BmThere had toF be a man with a plan BmTo push mFan, fBmorwardF BmThere was a cavemanF who, Bminvented wheelsF BmAnd with those wheels Fhe pushed man BmforwardF GSomeone had to come up with a Fnew concept for life GHad to push the mighty rock upFon the mountain top

Verse 2

BmGot to work it Fout BmGot to think ouFtside the box You got to Bmthink outside the Fbun BmIf you want to Fbe the magic one GWho will F7lead the trail, blaze the rail GBe the one that you will know must F7be Genius

BEverybody Flooks to the hero to Cmlead the way, to Fchange our way of life BTo show us Fsomething that is Cmmeaningful, Fyeah BWhen you look to the Fhero you must Cmseize the day and Fshine a ray of light BGotta shine it on Fsomething that isCm beautiful, Fyeah GWith the bravery to F7see, a new form of arts GA blazing of our F7consciousness, we're talking quantum leap

Verse 3

When you think outside the bun, It's scary out there There's also lots of stinky poo But sometimes when you go outside of your comfort zone You might find something brand new To help the humans leap Forward, do a simple leap Never be they same, they leap Across the fucking annals of time Quantum...

Chorus

..leap, leap Einstein, Shakespeare, Leonard Nimoy, Doctor Drew Bell Biv DeVoe, François Truffaut, Moses, Tenacious D That's a list of the people who have made the quantum leap It gets pretty scary out there because they got to know themselves, yeah When you look at the people who have made the quantum leap You feel like a turd cause you haven't accomplished anything yourselves, no With the bravery to see, a new form of arts A blazing of our consciousness, we're talking quantum leap VERSE 4/OUTRO: Leap... Leap... Leap... Sleep
