    A  Gbm  Bm  D
    A  Gbm  C  -Eb-

-Eb-	        F
 Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
                 Bb               Gm7
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long.
    C7             F
And wouldn't it be nice to live together,
	       Bb                 Gm7   C7
In the kind of world where we be-long?

Dm7                          Cm7
 You know it's gonna make it that much better,
Dm7                            Am7      Gm7    C7
 When we can say goodnight and

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up,
                Bb               Gm7
In the morning, when the day is new?
    C7           F
And after having spent the day together;
                Bb                      Gm7     C7
Hold each other close, the whole night through.

Dm7                        Cm7
 What happy times together we'd be spending,
Dm7                         Am7     Gm7    C7
 I wish that every kiss was ne...ver ending.
Oh, wouldn't it be nice?

Dmaj7        Gmaj7
 Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray,
   Gbm7            Bm7
It might come true?
Dmaj7             Gmaj7
 Maybe then there wouldn't be,
                  Gbm7         Bm7
A single thing we couldn't do?

	    Gbm7                  Bm7
We could be married, -we could be married-,
	         Gbm7                 C7
And then we'd be happy, -then we'd be happy-.
Oh, wouldn't it be nice?


Dm7                            Cm7
 You know it seems the more we talk about it,
Dm7                        Am7         Gm7
 It only makes it worse to live... with-out it,
	 Am7      Gm7     C7
But lets talk... a-bout it.

Wouldn't it be nice?

Outro -repeat-: F

Good night, baby, sleep tight, baby.
Good night, baby, sleep tight, baby.

  1. crabbypatties965

    That’s alot of chords. XD

  2. This is a very minor detail, but the bridge sounds better when you switch out the first Gm7 for a Gm

  3. I’m sorry, heidi_ho; but the cover you reccommend is just horrible. Completely out of tune and horrible electric uke playing . Please, visitors and singers, don’t even open the link!

    • Uh no it’s actually good and accurate electric tenor and baritone ukuleles sound completely different from concert and soprano uke. This is common sense that this was made for concert and soprano ukes. No any others
