The Trolley Song (Stacey Kent)

With my high-starched collar, and my high-topped shoes And my hair piled high upon my head I went to lose a jolly hour on the Trolley and lost my heart instead. With his light brown derby and his bright green tie He was quite the handsomest of men I started to yen, so I counted to ten then I counted to ten again Clang, clang, clang went the trolley Ding, ding, ding went the bell Zing, zing, zing went my heartstrings From the moment I saw him I fell Chug, chug, chug went the motor Bump, bump, bump went the brake Thump, thump, thump went my heartstrings When he smiled I could feel the car shake He tipped his hat, and took a seat He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet He asked my name, I held my breath I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer Plop, plop, plop went the wheels Stop, stop, stop went my heartstrings As he started to go then I started to know how it feels When the universe reels He tipped his hat, and took a seat He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet He asked my name, I held my breath I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer Plop, plop, plop went the wheels Stop, stop, stop went my heartstrings As he started to leave I took hold of his sleeve with my hand And as if it were planned he stay on with me And it was grand just to stand with his hand holding mine To the end of the line
