A Cdim A D9 A D9 Cdim A No-la is like a dream come true, she's sweet and un-af-fec-ted, B7 Fdim(III) B7 Cdim B7 Edim Bm7-5 B7 Ev'-ry-thing No - la seems to do is real-ly un-ex-pec-ted; E7 D9 Bm7-5 Cdim E D9 Edim E7 No-la has twink-ling eyes of blue and cher-ry lips per-fec-ted; A F#m Cdim A Edim D9 E7 Ev'-ry-thing nice like su-gar and spice is No-la. A Cdim A D9 A D9 Cdim A Walk-ing a-long the thor-ough-fare she al-ways draws at-ten-tion; B7 Fdim(III) B7 Cdim B7 Edim Bm7-5 B7 All of the fel-lows stop and stare, she's called the fourth di-men-sion. E7 D9 Bm7-5 Cdim E D9 Edim E7 But if they think that she could care, it's mere mis-ap-pre-hen-sion -- A F#m Cdim A E7 D9 A Wait'-ll you see the an-gel and me, it's No-la. Bridge: D E7-9 A7 Gdim Bm7-5 F#m A(V) On her hand she wears a di'-mond ring, might-y pret-ty thing, D F#m7 G A7 I'm the one who saved and bought it. D E7-9 F#m A7 Cdim Gdim B7 B7/F# Cdim B7 There's a house with ro-ses all a-round it -- awf'-ly glad I found it, A Edim Cdim A7 Luck-y I can just af-ford it. D E7-9 A7 Gdim Bm7-5 F#m A(V) When she's near, the win-ter turns to spring, bells be-gin to ring, D F#m7 G A7 There's a mag-ic charm a-bout her. D7 G G/F# Em7 Edim D She's di-vine and she's mine all mine -- A7 D Em7 B7 Cdim A7 D I'm in love, so in love with No-la. A D9 Cdim A B7 D9 Cdim B7 Eyes...that...haunt...you...lips...that...taunt...you... E Bm7-5 E7/6 E7 A A F#m Cdim A Edim D9 E7 Kiss...that...tastes...like...wine. A D9 Cdim A B7 D9 Cdim B7 If...you...knew...her...you'd...pur-...sue...her... E Bm7-5 E7/6 E7 A But...she's...mine...all...mine. Repeat first verse
