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. Bridge: 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.
