Nature Boy Nat King Cole
[E7]There [Am]was a boy, [Dm] a [E7]very strange enc[Am]hanted boy.[Dm7]
They [E]say he w[E7]andered [Am]very [Am+7]far, [Am7]very [Am6]far,
[Dm7]Over l[Am]and and s[E7]ea;
A [Dm7]little shy [E7] and[Bm7-5] sad of [Am]eye, but v[F]ery wise [Dm7] was [E7]he.
And [Am]then one day,[Dm] a magic [E7]day he [Am]passed my [Dm7]way;
And w[E]hile we s[E7]poke of [Am]many [Am+7]things, [Am7]fools and k[Am6]ings,
[Dm7]This he s[Am]aid to [E7]me,
"The [Gdim]greatest [Dm7]thing you'll[Bm7-5] ev - er le[Am]arn[Am+7]
Is [Bm7-5]just to l[E7]ove and [Bm7-5] be loved [E7]in [E7+5] re - t[Am]urn."[E7]

Is [Bm7-5]just to l[E7]ove and [Bm7-5] be loved [E7]in [E7+5] re - t[Am]urn."
