[Verse 1]
        Bm7           Bb7
This is just a little samba
       Am11         Ab7b5
Built upon a single note.
      Bm7                Bb7
Other notes are bound to follow
        Am11               Ab7b5
But the root is still that note.
         Dm11           G7#5
Now this new one is the consequence
       Cmaj7               F9
Of the one we've just been through
       Bm7             Bb7         Am11 Ab7b5     G6/9
As I'm bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you.

[Chorus]
Cm7
There's so many people who can
F9
Talk and talk and talk
             Bbmaj7 Bb6        Bbmaj7 Bb6
And just say nothing or nearly nothing
Bbm7
I have used up all the scale I
Eb9
Know and at the end
             Abmaj7 Ab6        Am7b5 Ab7b5
I've come to nothing or nearly nothing

[Verse 2]
      Bm7            Bb7
So I come back to my first note
     Am11              Ab7b5
As I must come back to you
       Bm7            Bb7
I will pour into that one note
        Am11            Ab7b5
All the love I feel for you.
   Dm11              G7#5
Anyone who wants the whole show
     Cmaj7         F9
Re mi fa sol la si do
        Bm7               Bb7            Am11     Ab7b5    G6/9
He will find himself with no show Better play the note you know.
