[(G7+)]Mona Li[C]sa, Mona Lisa m[F]en have n[C]amed you;
You're so like the l[C/B]ady w[Am7]ith the [Am7/G]mystic sm[Dm7]ile.[G7]
Is it [Dm]only 'cause you're [Dm7]lonely men have[G7sus4] blamed y[G7]ou
For the [G]Mona [G/A]Lisa s[G/B]trangeness [G]in your s[C]mile?
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nat_king_cole/mona_lisa_crd.html )
Do you s[C6]mile to t[C]empt a [C6]lover, M[C]ona [F]Li-[C]sa,
Or is this the way you hi[C7]de a broken he[F]art?
Many dr[Fm]eams have been left upon your d[C]oorstep;
They just l[G7]ie there, [G7+] and they d[C]ie there.
[C7]Are you w[F]arm, are you r[Fm]eal, Mona L[C]isa,
Or just a [Dm7]cold and l[G7]onely, [Dm7]lovely [G7]work of a[C]rt.
Mona Li[Fm]sa, M[G7]ona [Fm-C]Li-sa.
