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
