8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
True love nev - er does run smooth,  At least that's what I'm told.
If that is true,  Then our love sure - ly must be good as gold.
How we bat - tle ev - 'ry day,  And when I want a kiss,
I have to start ex - plain - ing,  And it sounds a - bout like this:
Dear - ie,  Please don't be an -gry,
'Cause I was on - ly teas - ing you.
I would - n't e - ven let you think of leav - in',
Don't you know I love you true.
Just be - cause I took a look at some - bod - y else,
That's no rea - son you should put poor me on the shelf.
Dear - ie,  Please don't be an - gry,
'Cause I was on - ly teas - ing you.
