I've got the world on a string
And I'm sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my little finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love

I've got a song that I sing
And I can make the rain go
Anytime I move my crazy little finger
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me
Lucky me, lucky me
Can't you see, I'm in love

Sam, life is a beautiful thing
Boy, you gotta have a little zing
Now if I could only sing like bing
Man, I could really swing (look out now)

Yes, I've got the world on a string
And I'm sittin' on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
Yeah, what a world, oh what a life
What a life and what a world riddle
What a life and what a riddle world

I got the world on a string
I'm sitting on a rainbow
I got that string around my little finger
What a world, 'cause I'm in love (oh)
What a song, the stars above (oh)
What a world 'cause I'm in love
Love love love

I got the song that I sing
And I can make the rain go
Anytime anytime anytime
I move my little finger
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me
Lucky me, lucky me, lucky me, heh, lucky me

Mmm, and life is a wonderful thing
Oh you gotta come up with that zing, Sam
Boy if you could only find that thing
We could play ting a ling

Yes, I've got the world on a string
And I'm sitting on a rainbow
I've got that string around my finger
Hey, what a world
Oh, oh, oh, oh what a life
What a world
What a life
I'm in love
