The Beat O' My Heart

The Beat O' My Heart

(Harold Spina / Johnny Burke)

Lew Stone & His Band

Tramping feet with traffic meet
And fill the street with booming and zooming
In rhythms with the merry
Beat o' my heart

Birds that sing and bells that ring
Their voices bring, the rollicky frolicky
Tempo of the dancing beat o' my heart

It all began the day you smiled at me
In such a charming way
Need I further say, because of you
The world is filled with music

Rumbling trains and roaring planes
Their noise contains the clickity clackity drumming
From the humming beat o' my heart

Wireless towers that flash their powers
Or thunder showers that pitter and patter
Are sounding to the pounding beat o' my heart

And since you're mine, my love song needs
Another line with word divine
That your name will rhyme with while I sing in time with
Every thumping bumping beat o' my heart
