 Intro:
        F             G
 I said oh my what a marvelous tune
             C                        Am
 It was the best night never would forget how we moved
       F               G
 The whole place was dressed to the nines 
              C               Am
 And we were dancing, dancing
                     F          G
 Like we're made of starlight 
                      C         (Am)
 Like we're made of starlight


 Verse:
F                                          G 
 I met Bobby on the boardwalk, summer of '45
F
 Picked me up late one night out the window
          G
 We were 17 and crazy running wild, wild
F                                                 G
 Can't remember what song it was playing when we walked in
                     F
 The night we snuck into a yacht club party
               G
 Pretending to be a duchess and a prince

 
 Chorus:
        F             G
 I said oh my what a marvelous tune
             C                        Am
 It was the best night never would forget how we moved
       F               G
 The whole place was dressed to the nines 
              C               Am
 And we were dancing, dancing
                     F                  G
 Like we're made of starlight, starlight 
                      C                 Am
 Like we're made of starlight, starlight


 Verse:
F                                                 G 
 He said "look at you, worrying too much about things you can't change
F                                                             G
 You'll spend your whole life singing the blues if you keep thinking that way"
F                                           G
 He was trying to skip rocks on the ocean, saying to me
                      F
 "Don't you see the starlight, starlight?
                  G
 Don't you dream impossible things?"

 
 Chorus:
       F            G
 Like oh my what a marvelous tune
             C                        Am
 It was the best night never would forget how we moved
       F               G
 The whole place was dressed to the nines 
              C               Am
 And we were dancing dancing
                     F                  G
 Like we're made of starlight starlight 
                      C                 Am
 Like we're made of starlight starlight

 
 Bridge:
  F       G
 Ooh ooh he's talking crazy
  F       G
 Ooh ooh dancing with me
  F       G
 Ooh ooh we could get married
  F                          G
 Have ten kids and teach them how to dream

 
 Instrumental:    F    G    C    Am   x4

 
 Chorus:
     F         G
 Oh my what a marvelous tune
             C                        Am
 It was the best night never would forget how we moved
       F               G
 The whole place was dressed to the nines 
              C               Am
 And we were dancing dancing
                     F                  G
 Like we're made of starlight starlight 
                      C                 Am

 Like we dream impossible dreams
        F                  G
 Like starlight starlight
                  C               Am
 Like we dream impossible dreams
                     F                  G
 Don't you see the starlight starlight
                    C              
 Don't you dream impossible things

The lyrics are "I met BOBBY on the boardwalk summer of 45"
. Picked me up late one night out the window we were 17 and crazy, running wild wild."
And "The night we suck into a yacht club party pretending to be a duchess and a prince."
