Love Is All Around

("Mary Tyler Moore Show" Theme)

Words & Music:

Sonny Curtis


You can play the chords below or move 'em on to power chords and play the Joan Jett cover version.


G                C                 G    Gsus4

Who can turn the world on with her smile?

G              Em

Who can take a nothing day,

    Am7                  D7

And suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

           Em                        CM7

Well, it's you, girl, and you should know it.

     A7                           D9

With each glance and every little movement you show it.



G                      C

Love is all around, no need to waste it.

G                          C

You can have the town; why don't you take it?

G       Em   Am7     D7    G  Gsus4  G

You're gonna make it after all.



[Sing the second verse for the Joan Jett version.  I've never heard the third verse.]


How will you make it on your own?

This world is awfully big, this time you're all alone.

But it's time you started living.

It's time you let someone else do some giving.


You are most likely to succeed.

You have the looks and charms,

And girl, you know that's all you need.

All the men around adore you.

That sexy look will do wonders for you.
