(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, 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 blue again
What else could I do again
Keep repeating through again
"I love you, love you"
 
I still recall the thrill, guess I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart
 
(instrumental)
 
Your eyes made skies blue again
What else could I do again?
Keep repeating through again
"I love you, I do love you"
 
I still recall the thrill, I guess that I always will
I hope 'twill never depart
All nature seemed to be in perfect harmony
Zing! Went the strings of my heart
