Chord progression for Irving Berlin's Let's Face The Music And Dance.

This tune has a very unusual form. It consists of two choruses of 56 bars. Each chorus consists of a 14 bar A section, 16 bar B section, 8 bar C section, and 18 bar D section. Sections A, B, and D are all variants of each other.

Before I worked on this tune, I had never heard it played. I think it's amazingly fine work.
