I've Got The World On A String

Cotton Club Parade, 1932
VERSE
Merry month of May, Sunny skies of blue, Clouds have rolled away And the sun peeps thru, May express Happiness Joy you may define in a thousand ways, But a case like mine needs a "special phrase" To reveal how I feel.
CHORUS
I've got the world on a string, Sittin' on a rainbow, Got the string around my finger, What a world, what a life, I'm in love! I've got a song that I sing, I can make the rain go, Anytime I move my finger, Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love, Life is a beautiful thing, As long as I hold the string, I'd be a silly so and so, If I should ever let you go, I've got the world on a string, Sittin' on a rainbow, Got the string around my finger, What a world, what a life, I'm in love!
