I’ve got the world on a string.
I’m sitting 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’s a wonderful thing
As long as I hold the string
I’d be a silly so-and-so
If I should ever let her go.
