New blog feature: Lovely lyrics

If you've been a reader of this blog for a while, you've seen my 28 Stoopid lyrics posts over the last 3+ years that expose songs with lyrics that don't make sense.  It was fun, but I'm done with that now.

So I'm starting a new blog feature called Lovely lyrics.  Its kinda the opposite of Stoopid lyrics because the songs I'll feature have beautiful, romantic, lovely lyrics.

For my 1st Lovely lyrics post I'm sharing a song I've loved for many years and sung at many auditions:

I've Got the World on a String
performed by Ella Fitzgerald

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
Any time 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
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - 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
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love
