LoverWords & Music by Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart
Recorded by Peggy Lee, 1952
From the 1932 film "Love Me Tonight"
D Dm6 Lover, when I'm near you Fm7 Em7 And I hear You speak my name Gm7 A7 D Softly, in my ear you breathe a flame. D Dm6 Lover, it's immoral, Fm7 Em7 But why quarrel with our bliss Gm7 A7 D When two lips of coral want to kiss Bridge: B Cm7-5 F#7 I see the devil is in you, B Cm7-5 F#7 And to resist you I try, D Bm7 E7 A7 But if you didn't continue, I would die. D Dm6 Lover, please be tender, Fm7 Em7 When your tender fears depart, Gm7 A7 D Lover, please surrender to my heart.
