lyrics

My Italian Gigolo – laura key


Intro: Dm-Gm-A Dm - Dm-Gm-A-Dm

Dm vamp



Dm
I’m standing here

Gm
Where lights are low

A
Anticipating

Dm
My gigolo


Dm
I know it’s wrong,

Gm
To be with this man


A
But, if you ever kissed him


Dm D
You’d understand


(No play)
Take me now

D
Hold me close, I want your arms

A
To be around my heart

A
Under the Tuscan stars

D
Is where love always starts










F#
I’m yours tonight

Bm
And don’t ever let me go

D
I’ll be your delight

A D – off and accordion
Mi amore, my gigolo.

A –pickup note by bass


Dm
I’m standing here

Gm
Feeling aglow (or…the glow)

A
Waiting in shadows

Dm
For my gigolo


Dm
Soon he’ll arrive

Gm
And whisk me away

A
Then he will kiss me

Dm D
In our hideaway






(No play)
Take me now

D
Hold me close, I want your arms

A
To be around my heart,

A
Under the Tuscan stars

D
Is where love always starts

F#
I’m yours tonight

Bm
And don’t ever let me go

D
I’ll be your delight

A D
Mi amore, my gigolo.

Instrumental
D-A, A-D - D-A, A-D

Gm
Falling in love wasn’t something

Dm
That I planned to do

Gm
I just wanted some laughs
Dm
Maybe a drink or two

Bm
Oh, but those eyes

Em
They hypnotize

E
I melt, I’m so weak

A
I can’t even speak


(No play)
Take me now

D
Hold me close, I want your arms

A
To be around my heart

A
Under the Tuscan stars

D
Is where love always starts

F#
I’m yours tonight

Bm
And don’t ever let me go

D
I’ll be your delight

A D
Mi amore, my gigolo.

D
I’ll be your delight

A
Mi amore, -------pause



D – off and accordion walkdown
my gigolo.
