What Are You Doing New Year's Eve

Words & Music by Frank Loesser
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, 1960

E                   D9
Maybe it's much too early in the game;

E           E7        A                Am6
Ah, but I thought I'd ask you just the same --

E            C#7  F#7          B7 Cdim    E    C#7  B7
What are you doing New Year's, New Year's Eve?

E                      D9
Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight

E           E7     A                   Am6
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night,

E         C#7     F#7        B7 Cdim    E
Welcoming in the New Year's, New Year's Eve.


G#m7            C#7
Maybe I'm crazy to suppose

G#m7            C#7
I'd ever be the one you chose

G#m7                C#7         F#7   Fdim(III)   B7
Out of the thousand invitations you'll   re  -  ceive.

E                  D9
Ah, but in case I stand one little chance,

E               E7     A             Am6
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:

E            C#7    F#7        Gdim  F#7
What are you doing New Year's,

B7  Cdim   Bbm7-5  Am6  E    C#m7  C#7  F#7  B7  E
New Year's Eve?
