[Verse 1]
C F C F C F CI never really fell in love till I went up to Fakenham Fair
G C F C F C G CAnd I chanced for to meet with a carnival girl a-selling the chances there
F C F GI tried for a lamp or a Spanish shawl or a golden filigree
C F C F C G CBut all the while her eyes were saying, “Oh! Come take a chance on me.”
[Chorus]
F CSo swing around the merry-go-round.
F GGive the wheel of fortune a whirl,
C F C FFor the finest prize at Fakenham Fair
C G CIs the pretty carnival girl.
[Verse 2]
C F C F C F CHer eyes were blue, her hair it was brown and her lips they were soft and red
G C F C F C G CAnd a shape like hers I had never seen and my eyes well they popped from my head
F C F GBut I was young and innocent but still even I could see
C F C F C G CThat the way she laughed and she winked my way it said, “Come take a chance on me.”
[Chorus]
F CSo swing around that old merry-go-round.
