Tiptoe Through The Tulips (Simple)
Tiny Tim (Al Dubin & Joe Burke (1929)


| [C] Tiptoe through the | [G7] window
By the | [C] window, that is | [F] where I'll be
Come | [C] tiptoe through the | [G7] tulips with | [C] me | [G7↓]    


| [C] Tiptoe from the | [G7] garden
By the | [C] garden of the | [F] willow tree
And | [C] tiptoe through the | [G7] tulips with | [C] me | [C7]  


Bridge
| [F] ... Knee | deep in | [Em] flowers we'll stray | [A7] ... |   
| [Em] We'll keep | ...the | [D7] showers a- | [G7↓] way

And if I | [C] kiss you in the | [G7] garden,
in the | [C] moonlight, will you | [F] pardon me?
And | [C] tiptoe through the | [G7] tulips with | [C] me | [C↓]
