A little time out with me
Bbm       Ebm
Just take five
Bbm       Ebm

And take the time out to see 
   Bbm  Ebm  Bbm Ebm

Bbm              Cbmaj7
Though i'm going out of my way
Abm7          Bbm7
Just so i can pass by each day
Ebm7         Abm7
Not a single word do we say
Db7         Gbmaj7
It's a pantomime and not a play
Gbmaj7           Cbmaj7           
Still i know our eyes often meet
Abm7           Bbm7
I feel tingles down to my feet
Ebm7                  Abm7
When you smile that's much too discreet
Db7            F7 
Sends me on my way

Bb7            Ebm
Wouldn't it be better
          Bbm  Ebm
Not to be so polite
Bbm       Ebm Bbm   Ebm 
You could of- fer a light
Bbm            Ebm                
Start a little conversation now
Bbm    Ebm   Bbm       Ebm
It's alright just take five
Bbm       Ebm
Just take five

About the artist behind Take Five Chords:

David Warren Brubeck (born December 6, 1920 in Concord, California[1]), better known as Dave Brubeck, is an American jazz pianist. Regarded as a genius in his field, he has written a number of jazz standards, including "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke". Brubeck's style ranges from refined to bombastic, reflecting his mother's attempts at classical training and his improvisational skills. Much of his music employs unusual time signatures.

His long-time musical partner, alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, wrote the Dave Brubeck Quartet's most famous piece, "Take Five", which is in 5/4 time and has endured as a jazz classic. Brubeck experimented with time signatures through much of his career, recording "Pick Up Sticks" in 6/4, "Unsquare Dance" in 7/4, and "Blue Rondo à la Turk" in 9/8. He also provided music for the TV animated miniseries "This Is America, Charlie Brown".
