Any girl who isn't me to--night.


G+     C    
I feel charming,
G+       C

G+    C             G+  C                  Am7

G7            Am      

   And so pretty  -  
                   Dm7         G G7        C     Bb  G7

That I hardly can believe I'm real.

F                               Bb            F                       C7
See the pretty girl in that mirror there.
F                                          Dm C

Am7 G7    Am      

   For I'm loved  -

By a pretty wonderful boy.


Tea for Two

C                G7                 C                           F6  
I'm discontented with homes that are rented,
C   Dm7        G7               C      C+     
So I have invented my own.
Am               Em7           Am7       Ddim
Darling this place is a lover's o-a-sis
           Am                  Em7            Am7
Where life's weary chase is unknown
Dm7                G7             C
Far from the cry of the city, 
             Em7    Ddim       F              C          Dm7 
Where flower pretty caress the stream.
C             G7              C6                   F 
Cozy to hide in, to live side-by-side in,
G7      C         Dm7    G7   C
Don't let it abide in my dreams.

G7  Cdim G7

Oh, honey 
Dm7     G7       Dm7     G7    
Picture you upon my knee,
CM7     C6          CM7      C6    
Tea for two and two for tea,
         Dm7   G7            Dm7      G7   C      C6
Just me for you and you for me alone;

F#m7     B7              F#m7       B7

Nobody near us to see us or hear us,
       EM7              E6              EM7              E6             
No friends or relations on weekend vacations
       F#m7             B7                             F#m7                B7        G#m    C7
We won't have it known, dear, that we have a telephone, dear.

Dm7       G7               Dm7  G7    

Day will break, and I'll awake
        CM7       C6        CM7   C6   
And start to bake a sugar cake
       Dm7    G7          Dm7   G7        Gm6    A7    
For me to take for all the boys to see..

Dm        Gm6    Dm   A7        

We will raise a family
    C#dim  Dm      C+       Fm6      
A boy for you, a girl for me,
         F              G7            Dm7   G7        C
Oh, can't you see how happy we will be? 


On A Slow Boat To China
  
F     Am      D7                  Gm7              G#dim
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China,
F             A7   Bb     D7
All to myself alone;
Gm7              G#dim                 F                  D7
Get you and keep you in my arms evermore,
G7                                Gm7                                    C7
Leave all your lovers weepin' on the faraway shore.

F      Am      D7                      Gm7                 G#dim

Out on the briny, with the moon big and shiny,
F                     A7           Bb      D7
Melting your heart of stone;
Gm7           Eb7                F                     D7
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China,
G7         Gm7 C7 F
All to myself  a-lone.
     
F     Am      D7                  Gm7              G#dim
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China,
F             A7   Bb     D7
All to myself alone;
Gm7                  G#dim          F               D7
A twist in the rudder and a rip in the sail,
G7                                Gm7                        C7
Driftin' and dreamin' honey, throw the compass over the rail.

F      Am      D7                      Gm7              G#dim

Out on the ocean, far from all the commotion,
F                     A7           Bb      D7
Melting your heart of stone;
Gm7           Eb7                F                     D7
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China,
G7         Gm7 C7 F
All to myself  a-lone.


Smile   Charlie Chaplin
  
G                                                       GM7            
Smile, tho' your heart is aching, smile, even tho' it's breaking
G6                            Gdim7           Am7                  E7+  E7
   When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by,  if you
Am7                            Am9       Am7      Cm                       Cm9  Cm
Smile through your fear and sorrow, smile, and maybe tomorrow
G                       Em7                        Am7              D6
You'll see the sun come shining through for you.

G                                                         GM7            
Light up your face with gladness, hide every trace of sadness,
G6                   Gdim7           Am7       E7+  E7               Am7                   Am9       Am7
   Although a tear may be ever so near, that's the time you must keep on trying
Cm                           Cm9    Cm   
Smile, what's the use of crying,
G                       Em7                        Am7     D6                           Am7 D6 G
You'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you'll just SMILE.                SMILE!
