    Intro:  / Em - - - / - - - - /

     

    Em                      G      C                    G

          It's a little bit funny   this feeling inside

    Em                       G                  C            G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

        I'm not one of those who can      easily hide

    Em                              G       C                   G

          I don't have much money      but boy if I did

    G                         Am            C                            D (2)

         I'd buy a big house where      we both could live

     

    Em                          G        C                             G

        So excuse me forgetting      but these things I do

    Em                 G           C                                       G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

        See, I've forgotten if     they're green or they're blue

    Em                    G        C                       G

        Anyway the thing is      what I really mean

                             Am             C                     D (2)

        Yours are the sweetest eyes      I've ever seen

     

    Chorus:

    D                         Em           Am                       C

       And you can tell everybody      this is your song

    D                        Em             Am                  C

       It may be quite  simple but      now that it's done

    Em                                  G                                 A                              C (2 hold)

        I hope you don't mind    I hope you don't mind     that I put down in words

              G (hold)   Am (hold)  C (hold)          D (2)

    How wonderful life is now you're in the world

     

    Em                 G        C                      G

        If I was a sculptor,     but then again no

    Em                               G           C                       G (1/2)    G/F# (1/2)

        Or a girl who makes potions in       a traveling show

    Em                       G         C                           G

        I know it's not much but     it's the best I can do

    G                        Am        C                      D

        My gift is my song and      this one's for you

     

    Bridge:

    / Am7 - / G - - - / Am7 - / Em7 - - - / C - / G - - - / D - / Em - - - /

    / C - / G - - - / D - / Em7 - - - / C - / G - - - / D - / Em - - - / - - - - /

     

    Chorus, End on G instead of D
