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 Any time 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 **************** I'VE GOT THE WORLD ON A STRING (Bing Crosby) as recorded by Bing Crosby with The Dorsey Bros Orchestra January 26th, 1933 New York Merry month of May, Sunny skies of blue, Clouds have rolled away And the sun peeps through, 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. 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 the song that I sing, I can make the rain go Any time 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 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! Ohat a world, what a life, I'm in love! Lucky me, Can't you see That I'm in love! Life is a beautiful thing, As long as I hold that string. I'd be a silly so-and-so If I should ever let 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!
