Somethin' StupidWords & Music by C. Carson Parks
Recorded by Frank & Nancy Sinatra, 1967 (#1 for 4 weeks)
D D6 DM7 D I know I stand in line until you think you have the time Em7 G/B A7 G/B A7 To spend an evening with me; Em7 A7 G/B A7 And if we go some place to dance, I know that there's a chance DM7 D6 DM7 D6 You won't be leaving with me. D D9 D7 D7/F# Then afterward, we go into some quiet little place GM7 G6 Gm7 And have a drink or two; Em7 A7 And then I go and spoil it all, Em7 A7 D By saying something stupid, like, "I love you." Bridge: D D8 D I can see it in your eyes that you despise D7 GM7 G6 The same old lies you heard the night before; E Bm But though it's just a line to you, E7 Bm7-5 A9 A A7 For me it's true, and never seemed so right before. D D6 DM7 D I practice every day to find some clever line to say Em7 G/B A7 G/B A7 To make the meaning come through; Em7 A7 G/B A7 But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late DM7 D6 DM7 D6 And I'm alone with you. D D9 D7 The time is right...your perfume fills my head, D7/F# GM7 G6 Gm7 The stars get red, and, oh, the night's so blue, Em7 A7 And then I go and spoil it all, Em7 A7 Em7 D Gm7 By saying something stupid, like, "I love you." Coda: A7 Em7 D Gm7 A7 Em7 D I love you I love you.
