Wouldn't It Be Nice  The Beach Boys

"Wouldn't It Be Nice"
(Brian Wilson / Tony Asher)
[(A)] v v [(F#m)] v v [(Bm)] v v [(D)] v v

[(A)] v v [(F#m)] v v [(C)] v v v v

Verse 1:
Wouldn't it be n[F]ice if we were older
And we wouldn't h[Bb]ave to wait so [Gm7]long
And [C7]wouldn't it be n[F]ice to live together
In the kind of w[Bb]orld where we be[Gm7]long[C7]
[Dm7/A]You know it's gonna make it[Cm7/F] that much better
[Dm7/A]When we can say goodnight and [Am7]stay tog[Gm7]ether[C7]
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
Oh, wouldn't it be n[F]ice
v v v v v v v v

Bridge (guitar repeats first two bars of intro):
[Dmaj7]Maybe if we [Gmaj7]think and wish and hope and pray it m[F#m7]ight come true[Bm7]
[Dmaj7]Maybe then there [Gmaj7]wouldn't be a single thing we c[F#m7]ouldn't do[Bm7]
We could be m[F#m7]arried (we could be m[Bm7]arried)
[F#m7]- last two bars of i[C7]ntro -
And then we'd be happy (then we'd be happy)
Oh, wouldn't it be[F] nice
(slow down)
[Dm7/A]You know it seems the more we [Cm7/F]talk about it
[Dm7/A]It only makes it worse to [Am7]live with[Gm7]out it
But lets [Am7]talk ab[Gm7]out it[C7]
(resume original tempo)
Wouldn't it be n[F]ice
Good night, baby
Sleep tight, baby... (fade)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

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.
