Fascinating Rhythm Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Got a little rhythm, a rhythm, a rhythm
That pit-a-pats through my brain
So darn persistent
The day isn't distant
When it'll drive me insane
Verse 2
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
Fascinating rhythm
You've got me on the go
Fascinating rhythm
I'm all a-quiver
Verse 3
When a mess you're making
The neighbors want to know
Why I'm always shaking
Just like a flivver
Verse 4
Each morning I get up with the sun
Start a-hopping
Never stopping
To find at night no work has been done
Verse 5
I know that
Once it didn't matter
But now you're doing wrong
When you start to patter
Verse 6
I'm so unhappy
Won't you take a day off?
Decide to run along
Somewhere far away off
Verse 7
And make it snappy
Oh, how I long to be the man I used to be
Fascinating rhythm
Oh, won't you stop picking on me?
