I hope that your troubles are few;

All my good wishes go with you tonight --

I've been in love like you.

Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star;

    DM7       Cdim         Em7    A7

I know how it feels to have wings on your heels

       G             Am7         G       G6
And to fly down the street in a trance;

  C#m7-5           F#7       Bm7-5              E7
You fly down the street on a chance that you'll meet,

         Em7     Bm7-5      Em7      A7
And you meet not really by chance.

       D9         Em7       F#m7      Em7
Don't cry, young lovers, whatever you do,

      DM7  Cdim         Em7     A7
Don't cry because I'm alone;

Em7-5     A7           FM7      A7
All of my mem'ries are happy tonight --

Em7       A7sus A7  Am7 D7  
I've had a love of  my own.


G           Gm        F#7        B7
I've had a love of my own, like yours,

Em7        Bb9   A-9 A7   D
I've had a love  of  my  own.
