Coming Around Again

Words & Music:

Carly Simon


C    Am       F     C        Am    C   F   C

Baby sneezes, mommy pleases, daddy breezes in.

So good on paper, so romantic, but so bewildering.




I know nothing stays the same.


But, if you're willing to play the game,

     Bb             F

It's coming around again.

    F     Eb        Am    D

So, don't mind if I fall apart.

        Bb             C

There's more room in a broken heart.


You pay the grocer, fix the toaster, kiss the host goodbye.

Then you break the window, burn the soufflŽ, scream a lullaby.




      C          Am        F

And I believe in love; but what else can I do?


I'm so in love with you.

F      Dm                                    Bb

I know nothing stays the same; but if you're willing to play the game.


It's coming around again


Baby sneezes, mommy pleases (love, I believe in love, I believe in love)

Daddy breezes in (I believe in love)

I know nothing stays the same (love, I believe in love)

But if you're willing to play the game (I believe in love)

It will be coming around again (I believe in love)


CHORUS:  [repeat and out]
