Capo first fret
Intro: | D G/D | A/D G/D |

D                  Gmaj7 A               F#m
 It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
Bm              Bm/A         Bm/Ab   G
 I'm not one of those who can easily hide
D                  A        F#        Bm
 I don't have much money but boy if I did
D              Em7        G              A   Asus4  A
 I'd buy a big house where we both could live

D           Gmaj7    A              F#m
 If I was a sculptor, but then again no
     Bm            Bm/A        Bm/Ab       G
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
D                A                 F#         Bm
 I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
D              Em7      G               D  Dsus4  D
 My gift is my song, and this one's for you

A                 Bm       Em7           G
 And you can tell everybody this is your song
A          Bm              Em             G
 It may be quite simple but now that it's done
Bm                     Bm/A                  Bm/Ab               G
 I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words,
    D         Em            G             A      Asus4  A
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

| D G/D | A/D G/D |

D             Gmaj7 A                   F#m
 I sat on the roof   and kicked off the moss
        Bm          Bm/A                      Bm/Ab     G
Well, a few of the verses, well, they've got me quite cross
D                   A          F#                  Bm
 But the sun's been quite kind, while I wrote this song
D                     Em7     G         A       Asus4  A
 It's for people like you that keep it turned on

D                Gmaj7   A                   F#m
 So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
Bm               Bm/A              Bm/Ab            G
 You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
D                  A          F#         Bm
 Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
D              Em7          G           D  Dsus4  D
 Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

A                 Bm       Em7           G
 And you can tell everybody this is your song
A          Bm              Em             G
 It may be quite simple but now that it's done
Bm                     Bm/A                  Bm/Ab               G
 I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words,
    D         Em            G             A      Asus4  A
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
Bm                     Bm/A                  Bm/Ab               G
 I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words,
    D         Em            G             D G/D A/D G/D D
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
