It's De-lovelyWords & Music by Cole Porter
Recorded by Sarah Vaughan, 1952
From the 1936 musical "Red, Hot and Blue"
D D6 Bm7 Em7 A7 Em7 A7 D D6 I feel a sudden urge to sing the kind of ditty that invokes the Spring; D6 Edim Em A7 Em7 G/B Edim Gdim D So, control your desire to curse while I cru - ci - fy the verse. D Cdim Bm7 Em7 Gdim A7 Em7 Cdim A7 D D6 This verse I've started seems to me the "Tin Pan-tithesis" of melody, Dalt G B7 E7 So to spare you all the pain, Em7 A7 Edim Gdim D I'll skip the darn thing and sing the refrain. D D+ The night is young, the skies are clear D6 Dalt D6 And if you want to go walkin', Dear, D Cdim Em7 A7 It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de - love - ly. Em B+ A7 G/B A7 I understand the reason why you're sentimental, 'cause so am I -- G/E Em7 G/E Em7 Gdim A7 Gdim D D6 It's de - light - ful, it's de - li - cious, it's de - love - ly. Bridge: D G/B D7 Am7 D7 Am7 G D7/9 G/B Am7 G You can tell at a glance what a swell night this is for ro - mance G/F# B7 Edim B7 Cdim Em7 G/B A7 A7+5 You can hear Dear Mother Nature murmuring low, "Let yourself go." D D+ So please be sweet, my chickadee D6 Dalt D6 And when I kiss ya, just say to me D Cdim Em7 A7 "It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious, Em7 A7 A7+5 D6 It's dilemma, it's de-limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely."
