The world is right My heart is light I'm like a baby There is no maybe I know my fate I never knew What love could do My heart is reeling The way I'm feeling Is simply great Fit as a fiddle and ready for love I could jump over the moon up above Fit as a fiddle and ready for love Haven't a worry, I haven't a care Feel like a feather that's floating on air Fit as a fiddle and ready for love Soon the church bells will be ringing And I'll march with Ma and Pa How those church bells will be ringing With a hey nonny nonny and a hot-cha-cha Hi-diddle-diddle, my baby's okay Ask me a riddle, oh, what did she say Fit as a fiddle and ready for love This is the day My lucky day I'm so excited I'm so delighted With everything You're in my heart Never to part I am so happy I feel so happy I want to sing Fit as a fiddle and ready for love I could jump over the moon up above Fit as a fiddle and ready for love Haven't a worry, I haven't a care Feel like a feather that's floating on air Fit as a fiddle and ready for love Soon the church bells will be ringing And I'll march with Ma and Pa How those church bells will be ringin'g With a hey nonny nonny and a hot-cha-cha Hi-diddle-diddle, my baby's okay Ask me a riddle, oh, what did she say Fit as a fiddle and ready for love ******************** As rec by ANETTE HANSHAW with Will Osborne & His Orch., Dec 2nd 1932, New York: Hi diddle diddle And the cat and the fiddle And the cow jumped over the moon. The world is right, My heart is light, I'm like a baby! There is no maybe, I know my fate! I never knew What love could do, My heart is reeling! The way I'm feeling Is simply great! Fit as a fiddle and ready for love, I could jump over the moon up above! Fit as a fiddle and ready for love. Haven't a worry, I haven't a care, Feel like a feather that's floatin' on air, Fit as a fiddle and ready for love. Soon the church bells will be ringing, And I'll march with ma and pa. How those church bells will be ringing With a hey nonny nonny and a hot-cha-cha! Hi-diddle-diddle, my baby's okay, Ask me a riddle and what did he say? "Fit as a fiddle and ready for love!" Oh me, oh my, I could jump over the moon in the sky! Fit as a fiddle and ready for love. Don't worry, don't care, Feel like a feather floatin' on air, Fit as a fiddle and ready for love. In my heart I feel like singin' When I march with ma and pa; How those church bells will be ringin' With the eeny wonny eeny wonny, hot-cha-cha! Hi-diddle-diddle, my baby's okay, Ask me a riddle and what did he say? He said "Fit as a fiddle and I'm all ready for love!"
