Crosby, Bing - I've Got The World On A String Lyrics




Merry month of may, sunny skies of blue,
Clouds have rolled away and the sun peeps thru,
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 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 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.

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 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 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.

  1. Luis Pintak

    A really nice song. I like those accompaniments with violin, sax and clarinet and the rhythm group consisting of piano, drums, bass and guitar. And this version of Bing's version really has a clear sound.
    It was released about 1931, I think, orchestra accompaniment by The Dorsey Brothers and their orchestra.
