The words here are thrown in nearly as an afterthought, not because Bennett did a poor version (he didn't) but because the only memorable versions I've heard of this song were instrumentals. I've even added measure marks to suggest timing. There are two or three chord formations here that are used nowhere else on the site, so I'll show them here:
