So Smooth ~ 1955
 
 
I've Got the World on a String
 
I got the world on a string, sittin' on a rainbow,
Got a string around my finger, what a world, what a life,
I'm in love . . .
 
I 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 a string,
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let you go . . .
 
I got the world on a string, sittin' on the rainbow,
Got a string around my finger, what a life, what a world,
I'm in love . . .
 
( instrumental repeat of verse )  
 
. . . what a world, what a life,
I'm in love . . .
 
( instrumental repeat of verse )  
 
. . . lucky me, can't you see?
That I'm in love . . .
 
Life is a beautiful thing, as long as I hold a string,
I'd be a silly so and so, if I should ever let you go . . .
 
Oh! I got the world on a string, sittin' on the rainbow,
Got a string around my finger, what a world, what a life,
I'm really in love . . .
