I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting 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 the rain go
Anytime I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see, I'm in love

Life's a beautiful thing
As long as, I hold the string
I'd be a silly so and so
If I should ever let it go
(You didn't go, don't you know, you can never let go)

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

Life's a beautiful thing
(Life is a wonderful thing)
Long as I hang on to the string
I'd be a silly so and so
(I'd be a silly so and so)
If I should ever let it go
(Let go, let it go)

I've got the world on a string
(And I've sitting on a rainbow)
Got that string around my finger
What a world
(What a world)
There ain't no other world like
(There ain't no public life)
Hey no
