i got the world on a string
(Harold Arlen, Ted Koehler)

 

Chorus
Got the world on a string,
sittin' on a rainbow.
Got the string around my fingers.
What a life, what a world,
I'm in love.

Got the song I can sing,
and I can make the rain go
any time I move my fingers.
Lucky me, can't you see,
I'm in love.

Verse
Life a beautiful thing
as long as I hold the string.
(And) I'd be silly so-and-so,
if I should ever let go.

Chorus
I got the world on a string,
sittin' on a rainbow.
Got the string around my fingers.
Lucky me, can't you see,
I'm in love...All right.
