Nancy (With the Laughing Face)

Words & Music by Phil Silvers & Jimmy Van Heusen
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1944


  Cdim     Em7                  A9
If I don't see her each day, I miss her;

D                             C#m  Fm
Gee what a thrill each time I kiss her.

Em                    C#m7-5 F#7 Bm   Bm7       E7      Em7    A7      
Believe me, I've got a case  on Nancy with the laughing face.


     Cdim      Em7                  A9
She takes the winter and makes it summer;

D                      C#m     Fm
Summer could take some lessons from her.

Em                  C#m7-5  F#7   Bm              Gm       D   F7
Picture a tomboy in lace  that's Nancy with the laughing face.


Bridge 1:

       C#m                      Bm+7
Do you ever hear mission bells ringing?

              Bm7                     E9    E7-5
Well, she'll give you the very same glow;

Gm         D                            Em7    A7
When she speaks you would think it was singing;

     Bm   Bm7  E7      Em7   A7
Just hear her say, "Hello."


  Cdim      Em7                   A9
I swear to goodness, you can't resist her;

D                  C#m    Fm
Sorry for you, she has no sister.

Em                  C#m7-5 F#7  Bm             Gm        D    F7
No one could ever replace  my  Nancy with the laughing face.


Bridge 2:

       C#m                     Bm+7
What a wonderful treat to come home to,

         Bm7                      E9     E7-5
When the long day has drawn to a close;

 Gm         D                       Em7      A7
There's the patter of feet to come home to,

    Bm   Bm7  E7      Em7   A7
And Nan - cy gave me those.


 Cdim        Em7              A9
Keep Betty Grable, Lamour and Turner;
D                    C#m      Fm
She makes my heart a charcoal burner.
Em                 C#m7-5 F#7 Bm              Gdim     D     G6  D6
No one could ever replace  my Nancy with the laughing face.
