G                D       C                     D
It’s late in the evening, she’s wonderin’ what clothes to wear
G               D       C               D
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long brown hair
C            D         G    G/F#     Em
And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
           C             D         G
And I say "Yes, you look wonderful tonight".


We go to a party, and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady walkin’ around with me
And then she asks me "Do you feel all right?"
And I say "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight"

       C         D                 G          G/F#    Em
I feel wonderful because I see the love-light in your eyes
        C            D               C             D
And the wonder of it all is that you just don’t realize
           G
How much I love you.


It’s time to go home now, and I’ve got an aching head
I giver the car keys, she helps me to bed
And then I tell her, as I turn the light
I say "My darlin’, you were wonderful tonight"
       C                 D           G
"Oh my darlin’, you were wonderful tonight"
