C7 F G7 CM7 Am Hey, drink up, all you people, F7 G7 CM7 Am And order anything you see; Am Am+7 Am7 D Have fun, you happy people -- F E7 Am Dm7 - E7 The drink and the laugh's on me. Am Bb9 Am F7 Try to think that love's not around, Am Dm Dm7 E7 Still it's uncomfortably near; Am D9 Am Bb9 My poor old heart ain't gainin' no ground Am Bb9 E7 Am Because my angel eyes ain't here. Am Bb9 Am F7 Angel eyes, the old Devil sent, Am Dm Dm7 E7 They glow unbearably bright; Am D9 Am Bb9 And need I say that my love's misspent, Am Bb9 E7 Am Misspent with angel eyes tonight? F G7 CM7 Am So drink up, all of you people, F G7 CM7 Am Order anything you see; Am Am+7 Am7 D Have lots of fun, you happy people -- Am Am+7 Bb9 E7 The drink and the laugh's on me. Am Bb9 Am F7 Pardon me, but I gotta run -- Am Dm Dm7 F7 E7 The fact's uncommonly clear. Am D9 Am Bb9 I gotta find who's now the number one Am Bb9 E7 Am And why my angel eyes she ain't here. Dm Dm7 Bb9 E7 Am 'Scuse me while I dis - ap - pear.
