E7           Am7               AM7      E7
  Do nothin' till you hear from me.

Em7        A7                 DM7   D6
  Pay no attention to what's said,

Dm7          G9                 AM7       F#7
  Why people tear the seams of anyone's dream

B7   E6        A6    D6    Fdim     E9
  Is o-ver my head.

E7           Am7                AM7      E7
  Do nothin' till you hear from me.

Em7           A7           DM7      D6
  At least consider our romance;

Dm7             G9               AM7            F#7
  If you should take the word of others you've heard

B7   E6         A6     D6     Fdim     E9
  I haven't a chance.


Gm7   C7       FM7   Gm7       C7
True I've been seen      with someone new,

    Gm7  C7   FM7       F7
But does that mean that I'm untrue?

	 Dm7   AM7     C#m7-5        F#7
When we're apart the words in my hear

Bm7-5        B7         E7     B7    E7
Reveal how I feel about you.

E7           Am7                AM7      E7
  Some kiss may cloud my memory,
Em7          A7               DM7    D6
  And other arms may hold a thrill.

Dm7             G9               AM7         F#7
  But please do nothin' till you hear it from me

B7    E6         A6     D6   A6    B7    A6
  And you never will.
