Intro:
D


D
Well it's the same old song
G
Boy meets girl

And girl meets boy
D
They carry on
G
They close their eyes
D
And kiss until the world is gone
A
Oh yes it's true
D
It's happening to you



D
You know what they say
G
They pledge their love forever
D
Then they add a day
G
They hold their hands so tight

In the fear
D
That one might stray
A
Oh yes it's true
D
It's happening to you
A D
It's happening to you



Chorus:
G
I loved her
D
She loved me too
G
We had a lot of love
D A
Now it's all through



D
And for a while
G
Their hearts beat one

As they match each other
D
Smile for smile
G
They dance away the night

As they praise
D
The others style
A
Oh yes it's true
D
It's happening to you
A D
It's happening to you



(Repeat Chorus)



D
Well it's the same old song
G
Boy meets girl

And girl meets boy
D
They carry on
G
They close their eyes
D
And kiss until the world is gone
A
Oh yes it's true
D
It's happening to you
A D
It's happening to you
