1. Darling, till you came along, mine was just a plain song.

†††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† BmE7

Had the rhythm, but I didnít have the flair

††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††† C#m††††††††††††† E†††††

My brass was sounding tinnish, my symphony unfinished

††††††† Gdim†††††††††††† Bbdim†††††††††††††††† F#m††††††††† B7

My chord was so diminished it was hardly even there.

†††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F#m G#m E†††††††††††††††† G#m F#m†††††††

Like a balloon thatís been deflated, I was flat, but fated.

††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† BmE7

To find a merry air to accompany

†††† A†††††††††† Am†††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††† C#m F#m†††††††† B7††††††††† EEF#m G#m†† E E G#m†† F#m

But I never heard the beauty of my song, until you sang it to me.

2. I wrote songs in clutches, but never one that touches.

†† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† BmE7

Though I tried as much as I was able.

††† A†††††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††† C#m†††††††††† E†††††

I slaved like Cinderella, an a capella fella;

††††††† Gdim†††††††††††† Bbdim†††††††††† F#mB7

Now Iím a million seller on your label.

†††† A††††††††††††††† Am††††††††† E††† †††††††

Yours was the throat for which I wrote

†††††† Gdim Bbdim†††† Dbdim†††††

each note unknowingly.

†††† A†††††††††† Am†††††††††† E†††††††††††††††† C#m F#m†††††††† B7††††††††† G#

But I never heard the beauty of my song, until you sang it to me,

B7††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††EEF#m G#m†† E E G#m†† F#m†† E††††

until you sang it to me,
