             Cm7  Em7              G/Bb
Let there be you,     let there be me,

A7-9         Dm7-5    Fdim          C9   Dm7  Em7      
Let there be oysters,     under the sea,

Cdim          Dm7  Fdim            C9    CM7/6
Let there be wind,     occasional rain,

Cdim        Dm7  Fdim                  CM7/6    Dm7   Fdim
Chili con carne,     and sparkling champagne,

             C9    Em7                 C9    Gdim  Dm7 
Let there be birds     to sing in the trees,

           Dm7-5    Fdim             C9    Gdim  Dm7
Someone to bless me      whenever I sneeze,

Fdim         C9      Em7                A9    Em7     A7
Let there be cuckoos,     a lark and a dove --

    Fdim           Dm7    Fdim           C    Bb9    CM7/6
But first of all, please,  let there be love.
