Change Partners

Words & Music by Irving Berlin
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1967

D6             Cdim
Must you dance every dance 

Em7                     Gdim   A7
With the same fortunate man?

         F#m         Cdim                 Em7   A7
You have danced with him since the music began.

Em7   A7    G   Edim      A7   D6   Cdim  A7   A7+5
Won't you change partners and dance with me?

D6             Cdim
Must you dance quite so close 

Em7                         Gdim   A7
With your lips touching his face?

          F#m     Cdim                   Em7   A7
Can't you see I'm longing to be in his place?

Em7   A7    G    Edim    A7 Gdim   D
Won't you change part - ners and dance with me?


G   G/F#   Em        B+      Am7                D7
Ask him to sit this one out while you're alone,

G   G/F#       Em        B+            A7   Em7     D9    A7
I'll tell the waiter to tell him he's wanted on the telephone.

D6                 B7
You've been locked in his arms 

Em7                     Gdim   B7
Ever since heaven-knows-when.

          F#m    Cdim           Em7   A7
Won't you change partners and then,

        Em7   A7        G    Edim    A7    D
You may never want to change part - ners again.
