Funny When You Feel That Way

 

[D]I cant forget how queer I felt

When first I fell in love

I had a most sincere attack

Squeezing a [A]lady's [D]glove

 

Her lovely hand was in it,

As I waltzed around so gay

I thought myself in paradise

It's [A]funny when you feel that [D]way

 

[D]It's funny when you feel that way

It's [G]funny when you feel that [D]way

I thought myself in paradise

It's [A]funny when you feel that [D]way

+ D - A - D (2x)

Again we met one afternoon

As we were all alone

I pumped up nerve to ask if she

Would one day be my own

 

She blushed and said go ask poppa

And ask him if I may

I danced a cantor around the room

It's funny when you feel that way

+ D - A - D (2x)

It's funny when you feel that way

It's funny when you feel that way

I danced a cantor around the room

It's funny when you feel that way

 

The old boy said that we might we

And so he crowned my bliss

I shall be a double man

In about a month from this

+ D - A - D (2x)

Though it seemed to me somehow the time

Will never pass away

For I long to hear the wedding bells

It's funny when you feel that way

 

It's funny when you feel that way

It's funny when you feel that way

I long to hear the wedding bells

It's funny when you feel that way
