| [D]  [G]   | [A]   | [A]

Well, I | [D] hope that I don't [G] fall in love with | [A] you | [A]
'Cause | [D] falling in [G] love just makes me | [A] blue, | [A]
Well the | [G] music plays and [D] you display
Your | [Em] heart for me to [D] see,
I | [G] had a beer and [D] now I hear
You | [Em] calling out for [A] me | [1/2A] | [A] |
And I | [D] hope that I don't [G↓] fall in [A↓] love with | [D] you. | [D]

Well, the [D] room is crowded, there's [G] people every- [A] where [A]
And I [D] wonder, should I [G] offer you a [A] chair? [A]
Well, if [G] you sit down with [D] this old clown,
I'll [Em] take that frown and [D] break it,
Be- [G] fore the evening's [D] gone away,
I [Em] think that we could [A] make it, [A]
And I [D] hope that I don't [G↓] fall in [A↓] love with [D] you. [D]

I can [D] see that you are [G] lonesome just like [A] me, [A]
and it [D] being late, you'd [G] like some compa- [A] ny, [A]
Well [G] I've had two, I [D] look at you,
And [Em] you look back at [D] me,
The [G] guy you're with has [D] up and split,
The [Em] chair next to you is [A] free, [A]
And I [D] hope that you don't [G↓] fall in [A↓] love with [D] me. [D]

Solo (Sing melody with La la la...)

| [D]  [G↓] [A↓] | [D] | [D]

Now the [D] night does funny [G] things inside a [A] man [A]
These old [D] tomcat feelings [G] you don't under- [A] stand [A]
I [G] turn around and [D] look at you, you [Em] light a cigar- [D] ette
I [G] wish I had the [D] guts to bum one, [Em] but we've never [A] met [A]
And I [D] hope that I don't [G↓] fall in [A↓] love with [D] you. [D]

Now it's [D] closing time, the [G] music's fading [A] out [A]
Last [D] call for drinks I'll [G] have another [A] stout [A]
I [G] turn around and [D] look at you, you're [Em] nowhere to be [D] found
I [G] search the place for [D] your lost face,
I [Em] guess I'll have another [A] round
And I [D] think that I just [G] fell in [A] love with [D] you [D]

I see | [C] trees of [Em] green, | [F] red roses [Em] too |
| [Dm] I see them [C] bloom, | [E7] for me and [Am] you,  
And I | [F] think to myself, | [G] What a wonderful | [C] world. [Caug] | [Dm] [G7]

I see | [C] skies of [Em] blue and | [F] clouds of [Em] white, |
| [Dm] The bright blessed [C] day, the | [E7] dark sacred [Am] night, |
And I | [F] think to myself, | [G] what a wonderful | [C] world  [F]   | [C]  

Bridge
The | [G] colours of a rainbow are so | [C] pretty in the sky
Are | [G] also on the faces of | [C] people going by
I see | [Am] friends shaking [Em] hands saying | [Am] how do you [Em] do |
| [Am] They're really [Em] saying | [Dm] I love [G7] you.


I hear | [C] babies [Em] cry, | [F] I watch them [Em] grow   |
| [Dm] They'll learn much [C] more than | [E7] I'll ever [Am] know, |
And I | [F] think to myself, | [G] what a wonderful | [C] world   | [A7]  
Yes I | [Dm] think to myself, | [G7↓] ...what a wonderful | [C] world.  [Fm]   | [Cmaj7↓]
