TOP OF THE WORLD    The Carpenters

Intro  E
Da na na na na da na na na da na na na na na
     E                A         E
1.) Such a feeling coming over me
               E7               A        B7
    There is wonder in most everything I see
           A           B7           E         E7
    Not a cloud in the sky Got the sun in my eye
            A          B7                            
    And I won't be surprised if it's a dream (If it's a dream)
      E           A                 E
    Everything I want the world to be
             Em            A          B7
    Is now coming true especially for me
             A          B7       E              E7
    And the reason is clear is because you are here
                 A               B7              
    You're the nearest thing to heaven that I see (that I see)

CHORUS:
            E           E7            A
I'm on the top of the world looking down on creation
          E          B7          E    
And the only expla-nation I can find 
E7         A           B7          E                   A
  Is the love that I found every since you've been a-round
             E            B7           E 
Your love's put me on the top of the world


Repeat intro
       E               A                  E
2.) Something in the wind has learned my name
               B7              A                B7
    And it's telling me that things are not the same
               A             B7               E           E7
    When the leaves on the trees catch that touch of the breeze
                A                           B7
    There's a season scent of happiness for me (happiness for me)
      E            A              E 
    There is only one wish on my mind
               E7               A                B7
    When this day is through I hope that I will find
            A          B7           E               E7  
    That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
           A                            B7
    All I need will be mine if you are near (If you are near)

repeat chorus to fade
