I can't do chords, but here are the lyrics:


WHEN A BOY FALLS IN LOVE
As sung by Sam Cooke on "Keep Movin' On" (2002)

I've heard them say love was a wonderful thing,
Something you couldn't hide on a shelf,
But to me they no longer have to explain,
Because I know for myself.

He awakens each morn with a smile on his face,
When a boy is in love,
And the world to him is a beautiful place,
When a boy is in love.
He's up and he's gone; there's no breakfast for him,
'Cause he lives on the love of his sweet little gem.
The day's not through, though it's not very long,
Before he must talk to his girl on the phone.
That's how it is when a boy falls in love.

His girl's voice on the phone brings him wondrous delight,
When a boy is in love.
If there's been any darkness, it all fades from sight
When a boy is in love.
He can hardly wait till the moment they meet,
For he knows when he sees her his day will be complete.
When they're finally alone and he kisses her lips,
The world sings a love song and his heart turns a flip.
That's how it is when a boy falls in love.

At the end of the day, the time comes they must part.
The strains of regret tear away at his heart,
And late in the night as he sleeps on his bed,
Visions of her sweet song, how they dance in his head,
And before you know he is buying a ring
To capture forever that sweet darling thing.
That's how it is when a boy falls in love.
That's how it is when a boy falls in love.

Title: When A Boy Falls In Love
Composer: Cooke / Levert
Tabbed by: Martyn Buisman

I've [G] heard them say love was a wonderful thing
Something you couldn't hide on a [D7] shelf
But to [C] me they no longer [G] have to ex[Em]plain
Be[A7]cause I know for my[D] self

He a[G]wakens each morn with a smile on his face
[D7]When a boy is in love
And [C] the world to him is a beautiful place
[G] When a boy is in love [G7]
He's [C] up and he's gone
There's no [G] breakfast for him
'cause he [D7] lives on the love of his [G] sweet little gem
The [C] days's not through
though [G] it's not very long
Be[D7]fore he must talk to his [G]girl on the phone
[D7]That's how it is when a [C]boy falls in [G] love [D7]

His [G] girls voice on the phone brings him wondrous delight
[D7] When a boy is in love
If [C] there's been any darkness it all fades from sight
[G] When a boy is in love [G7]
He can [C] hardly wait 'till the [G] moment they meet
For [D7] he knows when he sees her
his [G] day will be complete

When they're [C] finally alone and he [G] kisses her lips
The [D7] world sings a love song and his [G] heart turns a flip
That's [C] how it is, when a [D7] boy falls in [G] love

At the [C] end of the day the time [G] comes they must part
The [D7] strains of regret tear [G] away at his heart
and [C] late in the night, as he [G] sleeps in his bed
Visions [C] of her sweet charms, how [G] they dance in his head
and [C] before you know, he is [G] buying a ring
To [D7] capture forever that [G] sweet darling thing
That's [C] how it is when a [D7] boy falls in [G] love
