Key written in: B♭ Major
How many parts: 4
Type: Other male
Lyrics:Close your eyes, close your eyes in sleep (close your eyes), in sleep
Comments:It starts out like the original tag, but rather than holding on the dominant 7 on "eyes", it's a minor 7 leading to a series of ii-V progressions to leading tone E to E-flat down to B-flat.

The E and E-flat chords are major 7 chords with the tenor on the 7. Be very careful, that is a slippery lock for both of those, but really nail them and they'll create a cool effect.
