(G7+)  C              F        C
Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa men have named you;

C/B  Am7     Am7/G    Dm7    G7
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile.

Dm                 Dm7            G7sus4   G7
Is it only 'cause you're lonely men have blamed you

G    G/A   G/B        G        C
For the Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?

C6       C      C6      C   F  C
Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Li-sa,

C7            F
Or is this the way you hide a broken heart?

Fm                             C
Many dreams have been left upon your doorstep;

G7        G7+          C
They just lie there,    and they die there.

C7       F             Fm         C
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa,

Dm7       G7     Dm7    G7       C
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art.

Fm   G7  Fm-C
Mona Lisa, Mona Li-sa.
