 Nothing you can say,

Can tear me a-way,
     G       G6  Gmaj7  G6
From my guy.

     Am        D
As a matter of opinion,
  Am         D
I think he's tops,
Am          D
 My opinion is;
         G
He's the cream,
       Gmaj7
Of the crop,
     Em        Bm
As a matter of taste,
   Em    Bm
To be ex-act;
A7
 He's my ideal,
     D7
As a matter of fact.

Verse 2:

   G            G6
No muscle bound man,
      Gmaj7   G6
Could take my hand,

From my guy.
   G        G6
No handsome face,
           Gmaj7    G6
Could ever take the place,
   B7
Of my guy.

Chorus 3:

   Am      D
He may not be,
  Am    D
A movie star,
            Am
But when it comes,
         D
To being happy,
Am (n.c)
 We are,
            G 
There's not a man,
   Gmaj7
To-day,
        Am        D7
Who can take me a-way,

From my guy.
