Instead of doing C and G for when she sings "close to you," I would recommend just doing G for that phrase. Other than that, it's the easiest one I've found! (and on key)

About this song

The song that brought the Carpenters to the limelight. Typical of their style with Karen's clear voice floating above subdued backup.
