Never could carry a tune, never knew where to start 
You came along when everything was 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 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 divine
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 divine
Zing! Oh, Oh, Oh went the strings of my heart
