Dm7      G7       CM7            Am          Cdim
Baubles, bangles, hear how they jing, jing-a-ling-a,

Dm7      G7       CM7
Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads.

F#m7        B7       E            C#m7        Fdim(III)
Sparkles, spangles, my heart will sing, sing-a-ling-a,

F#m7     B7       E            E7
Wearing baubles, bangles and beads.


Bm7    E7         AM7  F#m
I'll glitter and gleam so,

Dm7   G7       CM7 CM7/6
Make somebody dream so that,

Dm7     G7     CM7       A7          Fdim
Someday he may buy me a ring, ring-a-ling-a,

Dm7        G7              CM7
I've heard that's where it leads,

Fdim   CM7  Dm7         G7          C
Wear - ing baubles and bangles and beads.
