 -6  6 -6 6   -6  -6 -6   6    6  7   6 -6 
It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside 
  6   -4 -5  -5  5   -5    5  -5 -5 -6 -5 -6 6-5
Then I’m not one of those who can easily  hi-ide
-4 -5   -5   -5   -6 6   6  -6  7 -8 -6
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
-5  -5 -6  7   -8    -6   -4  -5   -5    6
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

 -6  7   -6  7   -8 7 -6-5  -4  -5  -4   -6  
And you can tell everybody this is your song 
6 -6   7 7 -8  -6 6   -5  
It may be quite simple but 
-4   -5  -4   -6 6
Now that it’s done
-6 -8   7   -8    -9   
I hope you don’t mind
7  -8   7   -8    -9
I hope you don’t mind
 -8  7 -8   -9  -8 7 -8
That I put down in words
-8   7 -6 -5   6   -4  -4     -6    6  -5  -5 6
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

-6 -8   7   -8    -9   
I hope you don’t mind, 
7  -8   7   -8    -9
I hope you don’t mind
-8   7 -8 -9    -8  7 -8  
That I put down in words 
-8  7 -6 -5   6   -4  -4     -6   6  -5  -5 6 
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
