Words & Music by Cole Porter
Recorded by Artie Shaw, 1938

Bm7-5 A7            Gdim   Dm
What  is this thing called love?

     Fdim   E7    Bm7-5  A
This funny thing called love?

     A7            Gdim Dm
Just who can solve its mystery?

Fdim  E7            Bm7-5    A
Why should it make a fool of me?

Am D7               Am7   D7   G
I saw you there one wonderful day;

     F                 Dm7      E
You took my heart and threw it away.

 E7           A          Gdim A7  Dm
That's why I ask the Lawd up  in Heaven above

    Fdim E7   Bm7-5         A
What is this thing called love?
