As written by Lil Mattis & Louis Yule Brown for the movie "The Nutty Professor" with Jerry Lewis

Up at dawnin', sleepy and yawnin'
Still the taste of wine
Then I remember you're mine and
I've got a world that's fine

What's before me, routines that bore me
Punch the clock at eight
But what a lucky guy I am
I've got a world that's great.

Atom bombs, Cap Canaveral and false alarms
Half the universe is up in arms
So I flip a little too, until I'm holding you.

What's the hassle, I'll buy the castle
We can live like Kings
If we're together forever
I've got a world that
You've got a world that
We'ver got a world that swings!

You've got me acting like a square out on a picnic
Wearing a smile each time we touch
But to split the square scene, I decline
I've got a world that's fine!

I'm hip, you're hip
Every chick even her cousin
Knows that your style is much too much
Still you like to play it cool and straight
I've got a world that's great!

Walking and talking in the sun
Staying awake and list'ning to the sounds
Talking and planning spinning fun
Rides to places out of bounds...

I'd like to take you
Through this wild wonderful venture
Fly like a kite through space
No strings
I'm not gonna lose that bell that rings
I've got a world that
You've got a world that
We've got a world that swings!
