[G]And w[Em]hen I t[Am]old [Am+5]them [D9] how b[Am7]eauti [D7]ful you a[G]re, [G/F#] [E7]
They [Fdim]didn't be[Am]lieve[Am+5] me, [D9] they d[Am7]idn't [D7]beli [G]eve [Am7] me [Alt]. [G]
Your [Edim]lips, your [Am7]eyes, your c[Cm]heeks, your h[D9]air,
Are in a c[Bm7]lass be[Am7]yond com[G]pare;
[Em6]You're the l[Bm]oveliest [Bm+7]girl [Bm7] [Bm6]that [G7]one c[F#7]ould s[Bm]ee.
And [E7-9]when I [Am]tell [Am+5]them, [D9]
And I'm [D7sus4]certainly [D7]going to t[G]ell [G/F#]them, [Em]
That [Em7]I'm the [Am]man [Am+5] whose w[D9]ife you'll [D7]one day [Dm6]be, [E7]
They'll [E7-9]never bel[Am]ieve [Am+5] me, [Cm] they'll [Cm7]never be[Bm7-5]lieve [E7]me,
That [E7-9]from this g[Am]reat big [Am+7]world you've [Am7]cho - [Am6]sen [Dm7-5] me, [E7]
That [E7-9]from this g[Am]reat big [Bm7]world you've [C]cho - [Cm]sen [G6]me.
And when I told them how beautiful you are,
They didn't believe me, they didn't believe me.
Your lips, your eyes, your cheeks, your hair,
Are in a class beyond compare;
You're the loveliest girl that one could see.
And [E7-9]when I tell them,
And I'm certainly going to tell them,
That I'm the man whose wife you'll one day be,
They'll [E7-9]never believe me, they'll never be[Bm7-5]lieve me,
That [E7-9]from this great big world you've cho - sen [Dm7-5] me,
That [E7-9]from this great big world you've cho - sen me.
