Shades of night are creeping. Willow trees are weeping.

   Old folks and babies are sleeping;
C                         G7                                   C 
Silver stars are gleaming. All alone I'm scheming.

Scheming to get you out here, my dear. Come

C          C#dim   Dm7  Ebdim        C           C+           F               Fm

Fm6    C       A7                    Dm7 G7       C    Am7 Dm7 G7             
Come tiptoe  through the tulips   with me;
C          C#dim          Dm7  Ebdim   C          C+     F          Fm
Tip-toe  from your pillow, to the shadow of a willow tree,

Come tip-toe through the tulips  with me.
