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

Happpiness, joy you may define
In thousand ways
But a case like mine needs a special phrase
To reveal, how I feel

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 little 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
I've got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life, I'm in love

Songwriters
TED KOEHLER, HAROLD ARLEN
