 A    F#m   D9   A
Three lit - tle words;

   Cdim  A  Cm7 Cdim       E7  D9           E7
Oh what I'd give for that won - der - ful phrase.

E7 Cdim  E7    A    F#m   D9   A
To hear those three lit - tle words,

      Cdim  A  Cm7 Cdim      E7  D9     E7
That's all I'd live for the rest of my days.

A    F#m D9 A      A9   A7
And what I feel in my heart,

Em7/9           A7/6   A7
They tell sin - cere - ly --

D            B7        D      Cdim    Bm7-5   E7
No oth - er words can tell it half so clear - ly.

 A    F#m   D9   A            Cdim  A  Cm7  Cdim
Three lit - tle words, eight lit - tle let - ters

       D9            E7/6 E7   A
Which sim - ply mean, "I love you."
