(Intro: Em - Am7 - D7)
(Em)Clair, the (Am7)moment I met you I (D7)swear
I (Bm)felt as if something some(Em)where
Had (Am7)happened to me, wich (F#)I couldn´t (D7)see
And (Em)then the (Am7)moment I met you a(D7)gain
I (Bm7)knew in my heart that we were (Em)friends
It (Am7)had to be so, it (F#)couldn´t be (D7)no
But (G)try as (E7)hard as I might do I (Am7)don´t know why
(D7)You get to me in a way I (Gmaj7)can´t describe
(Cmaj7)Words mean so little when you (A7)look up and smile
I don´t care (G6)what people say to me
You´re (A7)more than a child, oh (Am7)Clair, (D7)Clair

(Em)Clair if ever a (Am7)moment so (D7)rare
Was (Bm)captured for all to com(Em)pare
That (Am7)moment is you, in (F#)all that you (D7)do
But (G)why in (E7)spite of our age difference (Am7)do I cry
(D7) Each time I leave you I feel (Gmaj7I could die
(Cmaj7)Nothing means more to me than (A7)hearing you say:
I´m going to (G6)marry you, will you marry me, Uncle (A7)Ray?
Oh (Am7)Clair, (D7)Clair

Clair, I´ve told you before, don´t you dare
Get back into bed, can´t you see that it´s late
No, you can´t have a drink
Oh alright then but wait just a bit
While I in an effort to baby sit
Capture my breath when there is left of it
You can be murder at this hour of the day
But in the morning, this sorrow will seem a lifetime away
Oh Clair, Clair
Oh Clair
