D F#m Bm Em7 D Dalt G A7 I was the apple of your eye, D F#m C Am7 D Am7 Gdim D I had you with me every day; D G Edim Dalt A7(V) But now whenever you are passing by, D Dalt A7(V) G5 A7sus4 Bm Bm7/E G Em7 You're always looking the oth - er way. Bm F#m B7 A7/6 It's little things like this that prompt me to say: D6 Fdim Edim Em7 Edim You turned the tables on me, A7 Em7 Edim Dalt D6 And now I'm falling for you; D6 Fdim Edim Em7 Edim You turned the tables on me -- A7 Em7/9 Edim Cdim B7 I can't be - lieve that it's true, Cdim Am7 G6 G5 I al - ways thought when you brought G6 Fdim The lovely presents you bought Edim D6 D9 G A-9 D6 Why hadn't you brought me more, G G/F# Em7 Em6 Gm7 Gdim But now if you'd come, I'd welcome anything from A7 G6 A-9 A7 The five and ten cent store, D6 Fdim Edim Em7 Edim You used to call me the top, A7 Dalt D6 You put me up on a throne; D D9 D D7/9 You let me fall with a drop, D7/9 Am7 Fdim G9 G And now I'm out on my own. G7 Gm7 Edim Gdim Gm7 But after thinking it over and over, D F#7 B7 I got what was coming to me -- G6 A-9 A7 Just like the sting of a bee, Em7sus4 A7 A7+5 D (Cdim - Em7 - A7) You turned the tables on me.
*Suggested by recent visitor Mark Miller. Goodman's version lacks the intro verse; the only version I've found that actually includes it is Sarah Vaughan's 1961 recording with the Count Basie Orchestra.
