E7 A F#7 D Bm7-5 E7 To the tables down at Mory's, to the place where Louis dwells, D9 Bm7-5 E7 A Edim E7 To the dear old Temple bar we love so well, A F#7 D Bm7-5 E7 Sing the Whiffenpoofs assembled, with their glasses raised on high, D9 Bm7-5 E7 A Edim E7 And the magic of their singing casts a spell. E7 A F#7 D Bm7-5 E7 Yes, the magic of their singing of the songs we love so well, D9 Bm7-5 E7 A "Shall I Wasting" and "Mavourneen" and the rest; E7 A A7 D9 Dm6 We will serenade our Louis while life and voice shall last, A D9 E7 E7/9 E7 A E7 Then we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest. E7 A F#m7 Bm7 E7 We're poor little lambs who have lost our way: Bm7 E7 A Edim E7 Baa! Baa! Baa! E7 A F#m7 Bm7 E7 We're little black sheep who have gone astray: Bm7 E7 A AM7 Baa! Baa! Baa! F#m F#m/E Bm Bm/A Gentlemen songsters off on a spree, E E7 AM7 Doomed from here to eternity; F#m F#m/A Bm7-5 Fdim(III) Lord have mercy on such as we: D9 E A AM7 Baa! Baa! Baa!
