Intro: A7 D Em7 A7 D6 My story is much too sad to be told, A7 D A7 D Em7 A7 But practic'ly ev'rything leaves me totally cold. D Em7 A7 F# The only exception I know is the case, Fdim F# Fdim A7 When I'm out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui, B7 Em A7 D F#m And I suddenly turn and see your fabulous face. Melody: Em7 A7 D F#m I get no kick from cham - pagne; Em7 A7 D Dm7 B7 Mere al - co - hol doesn't thrill me at all, Em7 A7 D6 F#m B7 So tell me, why should it be true Em7 A7 D F#m That I get a kick out of you? Em7 A7 D F#m Some like a bop-type re - frain; Em7 A7 D Dm7 D6 B7 I'm sure that if I heard e - ven one riff that would Em7 A7 D6 F#m B7 Bore me ter - rif- ic' - ly, too... Em A7 D Yet I get a kick out of you. Bridge: D7 G E7 C G C I get a kick ev'ry time I see G Bm Bm7/5- Cdim B7 You're standing there before me; Em Cdim Em Cdim I get a kick, though it's clear to me Em E7 Em7 A7/5+ You obviously do not adore me. Em7 A7 D F#m I get no kick in a plane; Em7 A7 D D9 A7 D6 Flying too high with some gal in the sky B7 Em7 A7 B7 Is my idea of nothing to do; Em7 A7 F#m B7 Yet I get a kick, you give me a boot, Em7 A7 D Yes, I get a kick out of you.
