B      Ab7        Db7       Gb7               B
Yes, my love, oh we are magicians, you and I
    Ab7          Db7      Gb7                   B
And soon we'll see, the cloud shapes in our eyes
    Ab7          Db7      Gb7             B
are blind, but fly, forever just the same,
    Gb7           B
forever just the same

Verse:
B                       Ab7
Oh you - you've been sleeping in the rough
  Db7                                       Gb7
a travelling man took you by the hand, and still I wonder
B                       Ab7
Why girl - you've got a pocket full of snuff
  Db7                              Gb7
a meek and mild, ragtime child who sometimes wonders

Chorus:
Dbm                  Gb7
Why, the crowds all stare
                    B                          Ab7
Mrs Porters crying, keep that kid away, from my bear
Dbm                      Gb7
I've got 10 bob on that one, and ill not be having no
B                    Ab7
mad assed kid, do me wrong
    Dbm                    Gb7
and suddenly the curtain falls

Verse:
B                    Ab7
Oh it - it may well hap' to be
            Db7
That there's magic wed, in ragged threads
      Gb7
That you sleep under
B                       Ab7
To find – there's an comfort in melody
              Db7
To a mild and meek, ragtime chic
    Gb7
And still I wonder

Chorus:
Dbm                  Gb7
Why, the crowds all stare
                    B                      Ab7
Mrs Porters crying, keep that kid away, from my bear
Dbm                      Gb7
I've got 10 bob on that one, and ill not be having no
B                Ab7
mad assed kid do me wrong
    Dbm                    Gb7
and suddenly, the curtain falls

Bridge:
Eb7            Abm
Mary's just a poor girl
                 E                           Gb7
Turned alabaster call girl, with bruised and pale pins
Eb7             Abm                                  E
Mary's still a poor girl, so through those gutters crawl girl
                     Gb7
Your secrets sleeping in

Chorus:
Dbm                  Gb7
Why the crowds all stare
                    B                        Ab7
Mrs Porters crying, keep that kid away from my bear
Dbm                     Gb7
I've got 10 bob on that one, and I'll not be having no
B                  Ab7
mad assed kid do me wrong
     Dbm                  Gb7
and suddenly, the curtain falls

Outro:
B      Ab7     Db7         Gb7             B
Yes, my love, oh we are magicians, you and I
    Ab7          Db7      Gb7                   B
And soon we'll see, the cloud shapes in our eyes
    Ab7          Db7      Gb7             B
are blind, but fly, forever just the same,
   Gb7            B
forever just the same
