C C7 F FmAnother sunny honeymoon
C Am7 Dm7 Bb9Another season, another reason
G7 C Cdim Dm7 G7For makin' whoopee.

C Am7 Dm7 Bb9It's really thrillin' that he's so willin'
G7 C F Fm7 CFor makin' whoopie.

Dm7 Bb9 CDown where the roses cling;
C7 Dm Dm+7Picture that same love nest,
Dm7 Bb9 G7And see what a year will bring.
