English Translation by Albert A. Beach
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1964
Gdim Dm DM+7 Dm7 G7 I wish you bluebirds in the spring CM7 Am7 CM7 Am7 To give your heart a song to sing, Dm7 Dm7/G Dm6 Fdim C Em7-5 And then a kiss, but more than this, I wish you love. Gdim Dm Dm+7 Dm7 G7 And in July a lemonade CM7 Am7 CM7 Am7 To cool you in some leafy glade; Dm7 Dn7/G Dm6 G7 Gm7 Gdim I wish you health, and more than wealth I wish you love. Bridge: FM7 Fm7 Bb9 My breaking heart and I agree Em7 G/B Gdim That you and I could never be, Dm7 (barre 5) D9 G7 So with my best — my very best — I set you free. Gdim Dm Dm+7 Dm7 G7 I wish you shelter from the storm, CM7 Am7 CM7 Am7 A cozy fire to keep you warm, Dm7 Dm7/G G7 C Fm7 Bb9 CM7 But most of all, when snowflakes fall, I wish you love.
