Joy To The World

Words & Music:

Three Dog Night

 

D                      C Db D                        C  Db  D

Jeremiah was a bullfrog-----, was a good friend of mine.

    D7       G              Bb

I never understood a single word he said,

      D             Em7       D

But I helped him to drink his wine.

        G7              Em7         D

Yes, he always had some mighty fine wine.

 

CHORUS:

          D   A      D      A                D

Singing, "Joy to the world, all the boys and girls.

D          D7            G         Bb

Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea

D      A7      D      C  Db  D

Joy to you and me."

 

If I were the king of the world, tell you what I'd do:

I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the wars

And make sweet love to you.

 

CHORUS:

 

You know I love the ladies, love to have my fun.

I'm a high life flyer and a rainbow rider,

And a straight-shootin' son-of-a-gun.

I said, a straight-shootin' son-of-a-gun.

 

CHORUS:  [repeat as often as you’d like and out]
