Fascinating Rhythm lyrics – as performed in the movie Lady Be Good – (1924) Music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin

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
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

What a mess you’re making
The neighbors want to know
Why I’m always shak

Each morning I get up with the sun
Start a hopping
Never stopping
To find at night no work has been done

I know that
Once it didn’t matter
But now you’re 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 girl I used to be

Fascinating rhythm
Oh won’t you stop picking on me
I know that

Once it didn’t matter
But now you’re 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 girl I used to be
Fascinating rhythm
Fascinating rhythm
Won’t you stop picking on me
