The gentle hand of music lifts me smiling,
And through these sounds my heart takes bounds,

And when the music starts to play let me be around, (I said)
When the music starts to play let me be around.

Oh, can't you see how my heart soars high,
When I hear that music.
When the music starts to play let me be around.
