Lyrics of ‘World on a String’

The song ‘World on a String’ was written by Harold Arlen / T. Koehler and performed by Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald with Joe Pass as well as by many other famous jazz singers. See the lyrics here. Soon we will publish one of the versions of this song in a video clip for our audience to enjoy the words in melodies.

Ive got the world on a string
Im sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life – Im in love

Ive got a song that I sing
I can make the rain go
Any time I move my finger
Lucky me, cant you see – Im in love

Lifes a wonderful thing
As long as I hold the string
Id be a silly so-and-so
If I should ever let her go
