Am     D
Just a perfect day,

G            C
Drink Sangria in the park,

F               Dm
And then later, when it gets dark,

      E
We go home.

Am     D
Just a perfect day,

G           C
Feed animals in the zoo

F          Dm
Then later, a movie, too,

         E
And then home.

 

   A           D
Oh it's such a perfect day,

    C#m                  D    D/C#  D/B
I'm glad I spent it with you.

A         E
Oh such a perfect day,

         F#m     E       D
You just keep me hanging on,

         F#m     E       D
You just keep me hanging on.

 

 
 

Am     D
Just a perfect day,

G            C
Problems all left alone,

F         Dm
Weekenders on our own.

          E
It's such fun.

Am     D
Just a perfect day,

G              C
You made me forget myself.

F               Dm
I thought I was someone else,

        E
Someone good.

 

 

   A           D
Oh it's such a perfect day,

    C#m                  D    D/C#  D/B
I'm glad I spent it with you.

A         E
Oh such a perfect day,

         F#m     E       D
You just keep me hanging on,

         F#m     E       D
You just keep me hanging on.
