The Trolley Song
With my high-starched collar and my high-top shoes And my hair piled high upon my head She went to find a jolly hour on the trolley and lost my heart instead With his light brown derby and his bright green tie He was quite the handsomest of men I started to yen so I counted to ten Then I counted to ten again "Clang, clang, clang" went the trolley "Ding, ding, ding" went the bell "Zing, zing, zing" went my heartstrings For the moment I saw him I fell "Chug, chug, chug" went the motor "Bump, bump, bump" went the brake "Thump, thump, thump" went my heartstrings When he smiled, I could feel the car shake He tipped his hat, and took a seat I said I hoped I hadn't stepped upon her feet I asked her name then lost my breath I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death "Buzz, buzz, buzz" went the buzzer "Plop, plop, plop" went the wheels "Stop, stop, stop" went my heartstrings As she started to leave I took hold of her sleeve with my hand And as if it were planned He stayed on with me and it was grand Just to stand with her hand holding mine To the end of the line
