C7 F7 Bb -  (F7  to chorus)
8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
The verse is at a slower tempo than the chorus, adjust your strumming when the tempo speeds up.
Tho' you're al -ways wax -ing sen -ti -men -tal And sweet words are all I ev -er hear,
You don't real -ly give a con -ti -nen -tal, Deep down in your heart you're not sin -cere.
You Call Ev -'ry -bo -dy Dar -ling,
And ev -'ry -bo -dy calls you dar -ling too.
You don't mean what you're say -ing; It's just a game you're play -ing;
But you'll find some -one else can play the game as well as you.
If You Call Ev -'ry -bo -dy Dar -ling,
Then love won't come a knock -in' at your door.
And as the years go by You'll sit and won -der why
No -bo -dy calls you dar -ling an -y -more.
