Come A Little Bit Closer  Jay and The Americans

COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER Time 4/4 Tenor Bb Bass: G# Class: Bb
In a li[C]ttle cafe on t[F]he other side of the bo[C]rder
She was sit[C]ting there giving me lo[C]oks that made my mouth wa{c]ter
* * *
So I sta[F]rted walking her way, she be-longed to Bad Man Jose
And I kn[G]ew, yes I knew, I should leave, then I heard her s[C]ay - a[F]y - a[G]y


[G].. Come a little bit [C]closer, you're [F]my kind of [G]man, so big and so [F]
[G]Com[F]e a little bit closer, I'm all a-lone, and the night is so

C F C *
So we started to dance, in my arms she felt so in-viting
C F C *
And I just couldn't resist, a-just a-one little kiss so ex-citing
F * * *
Then I heard the guitar player say: Va-moose , Jose's on his way
G * C F
[G]And I knew , yes I knew, I should run, but then I heard her say - ay -

C F C *
Then the music stopped, when I looked, the cafe was empty
C F C *
And I heard Jose say: Man, you know you're in trouble plenty
F * * *
So I dropped the drink from my hand, and out through the window I ran
G * C F G
And as I rode a-way, I could hear her say to Jos - e - yay - yay


[C]La, [F]la, [G]la-la
