1. Thank you very much! Thank you very much!
               G                               D
   That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me!
      C
   I may sound double Dutch
       G
   But my delight is such
      A7                             D
   I feel as if a losing war's been won for me
        G                            C
   And if I had a flag I'd hang me flag out
       A7                          D
   To add a sort of final victory touch
        G
   But since I left me flag at home
      C
   I simply have to say
              G         D    G
   Thank you very very very much!

2. Thank you very much! Thank you very much!
   That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me!
   It sounds a bit bizarre
   But things the way they are
   I feel as if another life's begun for me
   And if I had a cannon I would fire it
   To add a sort of celebration touch
   But since I left me cannon at home
   I simply have to say
   Thank you very very very much!

3. Thank you very much! Thank you very much!
   That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me!
   It isn't every day
   Good fortune comes me way
   I never thought the future would be fun for me
   And if I had a bugle I would blow it
   To add a sort of how's-your-father touch
   But since I left me bugle at home
   I simply have to say
   Thank you very very very much!

4. Thank you very much! Thank you very much!
   That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me!
   The future looks so right
   In fact, it looks so bright
   I feel as if they're polishing the sun for me
   And if I had a drum I'd have to bang it
   To add a sort of rum-tee-tum-tee touch
   But since I left me drummer at home
   I simply have to say
   Thank you very very very much
