        COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER   Jay and the Americans


           A                    D                  A
1.  In a little cafe just the other side of the border   mmmm 
                                   D                         A
    She was sitting and giving me looks that made my mouth water
    So I started to walk her way but she belongs to the bad man Jose 
          Bm                         E                     A  D   E
    And I knew Yes I knew I should leave when I heard her say ay  ay

                    A             D       E      E7 
Come a little bit closer Your my kind of man so big and so strong
                     A    D       E              E7        A 
Come a little bit closer I'm all alone and the night is so long

D  E  D  A  D  E  D 

2.  So we started to dance and in my arms she felt so inviting mmmmmm

     I couldn't resist to just one little kiss so exciting

    Then I heard the guitar player say  Vanmoose! Jose is on his way

   And I knew Yes I knew I should run but I heard her say ay ay


LA lalalalalalalalala

3.  Then the music stopped and when I looked the cafe was empty

     Then I heard Jose say man you know you're in  trouble plenty

     So I dropped my drink from my hand and through the window I ran

     And as I rode away I could hear her say to Jose  Hey Hey

chorus   chorus       La lalalalalalalalal
