Recorded by Mel Torme, 1964
D A Gm7 Edim Up at dawning, sleepy and yawning, D C#m7-5 B7 Still the taste of wine; Em7 A7 D6 B7 Then I remember you're mine, and Em7 A7 D A7 I've got a world that's fine. D A Gm7 Edim What's before me? Routines that bore me, D C#m7-5 B7 Punch the clock at eight; Em7 A7 D6 B7 Then I remember you're mine, Em7 A7 D And I've got a world that's great. Bridge: F#7 Gdim F#7 Gdim Bm F#7 Bm Atom bombs, Cape Kennedy, false alarms; Bm7-5 E Cdim E7 Half the universe is up in arms, Bm7-5 Fdim A G/B Cm7-5 E Cdim Gdim So I flip a little, too, until I'm hold - ing you. D A Gm7 Edim What's the hassle? I'll buy the castle -- D C#m7-5 B7 We can live like kings. Em7 A7 D6 B7 If we're together for - ev - er, Em7 A7 F#m7 B7 I've got a world that, you've got a world that, G G/F# Em7 A7 D We've got a world that swings.
