"A" You're Adorable

Words & Music:

Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise & Sidney Lippman (1948)


Anyone have the chords for the verse?


When Johnny Jones was serenading Mary,

He sure could quote a lot of poetry.

But he'd much rather tell 'er

What he learned in his speller

When they both attended P.S. 33:


C                  A7

A you're adorable, B you're so beautiful,


C you're a cutie full of charms.

Dm7                    Em7         A7

D you're a darling and E you're exciting and

Dm7        G7      C  D9 G7

F you're a feather in my arms.

C                      A7

G you look good to me, H you're so heavenly,


I you're the one I idolize.

Dm7                         Em7         A7

J we're like Jack and Jill, K you're so kissable,

Dm7      G7                 C

L is the love light in your eyes.



F6     Dm6    Em7   Am7

M----, N----, O---, P,

Dm7     G+        C

I could go on all day.

F6     Dm6    Em7    Cm

Q----, R----, S----, T,

G              D7                     G7

Alphabetically speaking, baby, you're OK!


C                        A7                         D7

U made my life complete, V means you're very sweet, W, X, Y, Z.

Dm7                Em7         A7

It's fun to wander through the alphabet with you

   Dm7      G7       C    D9 G7   C

To tell you what you mean to me!
