Words & Music by Jule Styne & Stephen Sondheim, 1969
Recorded by Mel Torme, 1960

A7       D9   D6/9    D9 D6/9  Em7 Edim
Got my tweed pressed, got my  best vest, 

Em7 A7 DM7  D DM7  D   B7
All I need now is the girl;

       E7/9    E7 E7/9 E7     A7/6  A7  A7/6  
Got my striped    tie, got my hopes     high --

A7      D9            F#m     Bm7         Bm7/E
Got the time and the place and I've got the rhythm,

G         G/F#       Em7       A7sus4 E7 
Now all I need's the girl to go with 'em.

D9 D6/9    D9  D6/9  Em7  A7    Edim A7
If she'll just  ap - pear we'll take this

DM7  D  DM7  D   B7 
Big town for a whirl;

        E7/9   E7        E7/9         E7          A7/6  A7  
And if she'll say, "My, darling, I'm yours," I'll throw away

A7/6  D9    D6/9 D9     Cdim          B7
My   striped tie and my best-pressed tweed --

      E7/9   A7/6 A7      D
All I really need is the girl.
