Got a little rhythm, a rhythm a rhythm
That pitter pats through 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 all day
I have to sneak up to it, some day I'll speak up to it
And hope it listens when I say
You got me on the go
Fascinating Rhythm, I'm all a quiver
What a mess you're making,
The neighbors want to know
Why I'm always shaking,
Just like my grandmother.
Each morning I get up with the sun
To find at night no work has been done
I know that once it didn't matter,
But now you 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 man I used to be,
Why don't you stop picking on me.
