It won't be long yeh, yeh,
It won't be long yeh, yeh,
It won't be long yeh, yeh,
Till I belong to you.

Ev'ry night when ev'rybody has fun,
Here am I sitting all on my own,

It won't be long yeh, yeh,
It won't be long yeh, yeh,
It won't be long yeh, yeh,
Till I belong to you.

Since you left me I'm so alone,
Now you're coming, you're coming home,
I'll be good like I know I should,
 
Ev'ry night the tears come down from my eyes,
Ev'ry day I've done nothing but cry.
It won't be long yeh, yeh.

Since you left me I'm so alone,
Now you're coming, you're coming home,
I'll be good like I know I should,
You're coming home, you're coming home.

Ev'ry day we'll be happy, I know,
Now I know that you won't leave me no more.
It won't be long yeh, yeh.

@Burfdawg:

I think you're right, it's F#m7, not F#m. But actually you're both right about the augmented chords. D#aug = B aug = G aug (Each chord has the same three notes of B, D#, G). Funny thing is, I actually learned that little bit of theory thru learning early Beatles songs, because they use a lot of augmented chords in the early songs (It Won't Be Long, Bad to Me, All My Loving, etc.), and some of the later ones too (e.g. Oh Darling!). The Beatles mother****in rock.
