Got a little rhythm, a rhythm, a rhythm 
That pitter-pats in my brain, 
So darn persistent, the day isn't distant 
When it'll drive me insane; 
Comes in the morning, without any warning 
And hangs around me all day; 
I'll have to sneak up to it, someday and speak up to it -
I hope it listens when I say 

Fascinatin' rhythm, you've got me on the go; 
Fascinatin' rhythm, I'm all a-quiver.

What a mess you're making, the neighbors want to know 
Why I'm always shaking, just like a flivver. 

Each morning I get up with the sun,
Start a-hopping, never stopping.
To find, that night, no work has been done. 

I know that once it didn't matter,
But now you're doing wrong 
When you start to patter, I'm so unhappy;

Won't you take a day off, decide to run along
Somewhere far away off, and make it snappy?

Oh, how I long to be the girl I used to be -
Fascinatin' rhythm,
Oh, won't you stop picking on me?
