How To Play

       E7  A            E7   Fdim    A      E7   Fdim   A
I used to visit all the very gay places, Those come what may places
      E7     A    D9   A      Cdim      Am7
Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
    Fdim      Am7            Fdim      Am7
To get the feel of life from jazz and cocktails
     E7    A         E7      Fdim       A
The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces 
     E7   Fdim   A
with distingue traces
     E7      A         D9       A        Cdim       Am7
That used to be there you could see where they'd been washed away
    Fdim      Am7           Fdim     Am7
By too many through the day twelve o' clock tales
  A7   Dm     A7              Dm      Dm     Gm        Dm
Then you came along with your siren song to tempt me to madness
 A7      Dm      A7          Dm          Dm       Gm               A
I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness
       Gdim       Fdim
Of a great love for me
 Fdim  Gdim  Fdim  E        Dm6    F
I guess, I was wrong, again I was wrong
 Bb     Fm    Bb
Life is lonely again
 F            Bb6  F             Bb  A  C#
And only last year everything seemed so sure
C    Bb     Fm     Bb
Now life is awful again
     F            Bb6      F      Bb  A C#
A trough full of hearts could only be a bore
   F       B           F         B    Bb
A week in Paris could ease the bite of it
Bb     Bbm9        Bb      Cdim   Bbm9
All I care is to smile in spite of it
Bb      Bbm9      Bb           F7          Bb6
I'll forget you I will, while yet you are still
   F     Bb    A   C#
Burning inside my brain
    F     Fdim   Fdim      Bb       F7/6
Romance is mush, stifling those who strive
 Bb9          Cdim        Bb   Gm7   Gdim
I'll live a lush life in some small dive
    Bb         Bbm  Cdim     Bb         F7/6
And there I'll be, while I rot with the rest 
F7  Eb   E7   F7  F#7   F7   Gdim  Bb
of those whose lives are lonely, too
