Dm Bm7-5 Em7-5 A7 It begins to tell 'round midnight, 'round midnight; Dm7 G7 Bbm7 Gdim Am7 D7 I do pretty well 'til af - ter sun - down Gm7 C7 Dm Dm+7 Supper time, I'm feelin' sad, Fdim G7 Bb7 A7 But it really gets bad 'round mid - night. Dm Bm7-5 Em7-5 A7 Mem'ries always start 'round midnight, 'round midnight; Dm G7 Bbm7 Gdim Am7 D7 Haven't got the heart to stand those mem - 'ries; Gm7 C7 Dm Dm+7 When my heart is still with you, Fdim G7 A7 Dm Dm+7 And old midnight knows it too. Bridge: Bm7-5 E7-9 A7 When some quarrel we've had needs mending Bm7-5 E7-9 A7 Does that mean that our love is ending? Gm7 C7 Bb7 A7 Darling, I need you; lately I find D7 C7 Bb7 A7 You're out of my arms and I'm out of my mind. Dm Bm7-5 Em7-5 A7 Let our love take wing some midnight, 'round midnight; Dm G7 Bbm7 Gdim Am7 D7 Let the angels sing for your re - turn - ing; Gm7 C7 Dm Dm+7 Bbm9 Let our love be safe and sound Fdim G7 Bb7 A7 Dm When old midnight comes a - round.
