As recorded by RUTH ETTING: Never could carry a tune Never knew where to start You came along when everything went wrong And put a song in my heart Dear, when you smiled at me, I heard a melody It haunted me from the start Something inside of me started a symphony Zing! Went the strings of my heart 'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a little robin sing About a nest set apart All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony Zing! Went the strings of my heart Your eyes made skies seem blue again What else could I do again But keep repeating through again "I love you, love you" I still recall the thrill, say, I guess I always will I hope 'twill never depart Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine Zing! Went the strings of my heart Zing! Went the strings of my heart ******************** As recorded by JUDY GARLAND: Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody It haunted me from the start Something inside of me started a symphony Zing! Went the strings of my heart 'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing About a nest set apart All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony Zing! Went the strings of my heart Your eyes made skies seem blue again What else could I do again But keep repeating through and through "I love you, love you" I still recall the thrill, guess I always will I hope 'twill never depart Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine Zing! Went the strings of my heart Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody It haunted me from the start Something inside of me started a symphony Zing! Went the strings of my heart 'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing About a nest set apart All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony Zing! Went the strings of my heart Your eyes made skies seem blue again What else could I do again? But keep repeating through and through "I love you, love you" I still recall the thrill, I guess I always will I hope 'twill never depart Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine Zing! Oh, Oh, Oh went the strings of my heart *** In Judy Garland's 1938 version of this song, as featured in the film "Listen, Darling," the line "Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody divine" was replaced by "I knew I loved you heaps, and you were mine for keeps."
