COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER   Time 4/4   Tenor Bb   Bass: G#   Class: Bb

     C                  F                 C        *
In a little cafe on the other side of the border
         C                       C                        C       *
She was sitting there giving me looks that made my mouth water
      F                   *           *                 *
So I started walking her way, she be-longed to Bad Man Jose
      G                          *                       C     F    G
And I knew, yes I knew, I should leave, then I heard her say - ay - ay


G                    C              F          G                  F
.. Come a little bit closer, you're my kind of man, so big and so
                  C       F         G                         C     F
G  F
Come a little bit closer, I'm all a-lone, and the night is so

      C                       F                   C        *
So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so in-viting
           C                         F                     C       *
And I just couldn't resist, a-just a-one little kiss so ex-citing
       F                       *        *                     *
Then I heard the guitar player say:  Va-moose , Jose's on his way
      G                           *                         C     F
And I knew , yes I knew, I should run, but then I heard her say - ay -

         C                     F                    C        *
Then the music stopped, when I looked, the cafe was empty
        C                       F                        C       *
And I heard Jose say: Man, you know you're in trouble plenty
     F                         *         *                        *
So I dropped the drink from my hand, and out through the window I ran
                G                     *            C   F     G
And as I rode a-way, I could hear her say to Jos - e - yay - yay


C   F   G
La, la, la-la
