Merry month of May
Sunny skies of blue
Clouds have rolled away
And the sun peeps through
May express happiness

Joy you may define
In a thousand ways
But a case like mine
Needs a special phrase
To reveal how I feel

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

I've got a song that I sing
I can make a rain go
Anytime I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love?

Life is a beautiful thing
As long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so
If I should ever let go

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

What a world, what a life, I'm in love
Lucky me, can't you see that I'm in love?

Life is a beautiful thing
As long as I hold that string
I'd be a silly so and so
If I should ever let go

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