A6 D6 A6 D6 Sometimes we walk hand in hand by the sea A6 D6 A6 And we breathe in the cool, salty air; D6 G6 D6 G6 You turn to me with a kiss in your eyes, D Bm7-5 Fdim(III) Fdim Dm6 And my heart feels a thrill beyond compare. F#m F#m7 Then your lips cling to mine, Bm7 Fdim Dm6 A B7 Bm7-5 Fdim E7 It's wonderful, won - der - ful, oh, so won-der-ful my love. A6 D6 A6 D6 Sometimes we stand on the top of a hill A6 D6 A6 And we gaze at the earth and the sky; D6 G6 D6 G6 I turn to you, and you melt in my arms; D Bm7-5 Fdim(III) Fdim Dm6 There we are, darling, only you and I, F#m F#m7 What a moment we share, Bm7 Gdim Dm6 A B7 A Bm Cdim A It's wonderful, won-der-ful, oh, so wonderful my love. Bridge: DM7 D6 Em7 A7 D The world is full of won'drous things, it's true, F#m7 D6 B7 E7 But they wouldn't have much meaning without you. A6 D6 A6 D6 Some quiet evenings I sit by your side A6 D6 A6 And we're lost in a world of our own; D6 G6 D6 G6 I feel the glow of your unspoken love, D Bm7-5 Fdim(III) Fdim Dm6 I'm aware of the treasure that I own; F#m F#m7 And I say to myself, Bm7 Fdim Dm6 A B7 A D9 "It's wonderful, won-der-ful, oh, so wonderful my love." Coda: F#m F#m7 Bm7 Gdim Dm6 I say to myself, " It's wonderful, won-der-ful, A D B7 E7 A Oh, so wonderful my love."
