A7/6      DM7        Am7          Cdim        GM7  -   G6
Look at me,   I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree,

                     Gm             Am
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud; 

  DM7          Bm7         Em7        A7           F#7   B7   E7   A9
I can't understand, I get misty just holding your hand. 


A7/6        DM7       Am7      Cdim             GM7     G6
Walk my way     and a thousand violins begin to play

                    Gm              Am
Or it might be the sound of your hello,

     DM7      Bm7         Em7        A7             D    Gdim   D
That music I hear,  I get misty, the moment you're near.

     
Bridge:

         DM7            Am         Am+7    Am7                   
You can say that you're leading me on, 

         Cm7-5       GM7         G6
But it's just what I want you to do.  

                      F#7           E7
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost?  

Bm7-5           E7          A7   Bm7-5   Cdim   A7
That's why I'm fol - lowing you. 


A7/6      DM7         Am7                Cdim        GM7  -  G6
On my own,   would I wander through this wonderland alone,

                  Gm                 Am   
Never knowing my right foot from my left, 

   DM7          Bm7
My hat from my glove? 

        Em7        A7           F7     B7  
I'm too misty and too much in love. 

         Em7        A7sus4 A7      DM7    G6    DM7
I'm too mist - y and  too  much in love.
