Tony Bennett – The Trolley Song lyrics

"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
He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet
He asked my name, I held 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 he started to leave I took hold of his sleeve with my
And as if it were planned
He stayed on with me and it was grand
Just to stand with his hand holding mine
All the way to the end of the line
