CHANCES ARE Lyrics
(Lyrics by Al Stillman / Music : Robert Allen)
Johnny Mathis – 1957

Chances are ’cause I wear a silly grin
The moment you come into view
Chances are you think that I’m in love with you

Just because my composure sort of slips
The moment that your lips meet mine
Chances are you think my heart’s your Valentine

BRIDGE
In the magic of moonlight when I sigh, “Hold me close, dear”
Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you’ll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

(instrumental first line of BRIDGE)

Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes

Guess you feel you’ll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good

The chances are your chances are awfully good
