A  -  pril love    is for the very young;

G      Em       A7      D7        G    Edim  D7
Ev'ry star's a wishing star that shines for you.

A  -  pril love    is all the seven wonders

One little kiss can tell you this is true.

Sometimes an April day

     D9    Am7 D7    G
Will suddenly bring showers;

Em7     A9       D      Fdim      A7  Gdim    D7
Rain to grow the flowers for her first bou - quet.


    G  Em7     Am7  D7      G          G/F#        Cm
But A  -  pril love    can slip right through your fingers,

       G         E7        Am7     D7    G            
So if she's the one, don't let her run away.
