Verse 1:

 F
        Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
 BbGm7
        And we wouldn't have to wait so long
 C7F
        And wouldn't it be nice to live together
 BbGm7C7
        In the kind of world where we belong   

 Dm7/ACm7/F
        You know it's gonna make it that much better
 Dm7/AAm7Gm7C7
        When we can say goodnight and stay together   

Verse 2:

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

What happy times together we'd be spending
I wish that every kiss was never ending

 F
        Oh, wouldn't it be nice

Bridge (guitar repeats first two bars of intro):

 Dmaj7Gmaj7F#m7Bm7
        Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true  
 Dmaj7Gmaj7F#m7Bm7
        Maybe then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do  
 F#m7Bm7
        We could be married (we could be married)
 F#m7C7
                         - last two bars of intro -
And then we'd be happy (then we'd be happy)
 F
        Oh, wouldn't it be nice

Coda:

(slow down)

 Dm7/ACm7/F
        You know it seems the more we talk about it
 Dm7/AAm7Gm7
        It only makes it worse to live without it
 Am7Gm7C7
        But lets talk about it     

(resume original tempo)

 F
        Wouldn't it be nice

Good night, baby
Sleep tight, baby... (fade)

That part:


Dm7/A Cm7/F
You know it seems the more we talk about it
Dm7/A Am7 Gm7
It only makes it worse to live with out it

Doesn't sound right, except the last two chords.
