Lyrics:
{Intro}
Never could carry a tune, never knew where to start
You came along when everything was wrong and put a song in my heart


Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
It haunted me from the start
Something inside of me started a symphony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing
About a nest set apart
All nature seemed to be  in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

        Your eyes made skies seem blue again
        What else could I do again
        But keep repeating through and through
        "I love you, love you"

I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

{instrumental}

Dear when you smiled at me, I heard a melody
It haunted me from the start
Something inside of me started a symphony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

'Twas like a breath of spring, I heard a robin sing
About a nest set apart
All nature seemed to be  in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart

        Your eyes made skies seem blue again
        What else could I do again?
        But keep repeating through and through
        "I love you, love you"

I still recall the thrill, I guess I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
Dear, with your lips to mine, a rhapsody devine
Zing! Oh, Oh, Oh went the strings of my heart
