Words & Music by Edith Lindeman & Carl Stutz
Recorded by Kitty Kallen, 1954 (#1)

G         Em     Am7       D7
Blow me a kiss across the room,

Am7        Cdim           G
Say I look nice when I'm not,

G         G7          C       Cm
Touch my hair as you pass my chair --

Am7           Cdim    G
Little things mean a lot.

G             Em        Am7       D7
Give me your arm as we cross the street,

Am7        Cdim        G
Call me at six on the dot;

   G      G7              C   Cm
A line a day when you're far away --

Am7           D7      G
Little things mean a lot


 G7          Bm7-5   G7          Bm7-5
Don't have to buy me diamonds or pearls,

G7         Fdim      CM7/6
Champagne, sables or such;

B7      Cdim           Em            B+
I never cared much for diamonds and pearls,

        Am7       E7          Am7  D9  Am7  Cdim
'Cause honestly, honey, they just cost mon - ey.

G             Em            Am7      D7
Give me your hand when I've lost the way,

Am7          Cdim        G6/5
Give me your shoulder to cry on;

   E         E7      Am      Am+7
Whether the day is bright or gray,

A7           Gdim      D9
Give me your heart to rely on.

G             Em        Am7       D7
Send me the warmth of a secret smile

   Am7         Cdim        G
To show me you haven't forgot;

     C         D9     C         A7
For always and ever, now and forever,

Am7           D7      G
Little things mean a lot.
