Fascinatin’ Rhythm lyrics:
TONY:
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
You’ve got me on the go!
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
I’m all a-quiver.

What a mess you’re making!
The neighbors want to know
Why I’m always shaking
Just like a flivver.
Each morning I get up with the sun
To find at night no work has been done.

DIANA:
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!
Fascinatin’ rhythm,

Oh, won’t you stop picking on me?

[Instrumental – 1 chorus]

DIANA:
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
You’ve got me on the go!
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
I’m all a-quiver.

TONY:
What a mess you’re making!
The neighbors want to know
Why I’m always shaking
Just like a flivver.

DIANA:
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’re doing wrong
When you start to patter
I’m so unhappy.

TONY: won’t you take a day off?
Decide to run along
Somewhere far away off
And make it snappy!

DIANA:
Oh, how I long to be the girl I used to be!
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
Oh, won’t you stop picking on me?

TONY:
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
Oh, won’t you stop picking on me?

BOTH:
Fascinatin’ rhythm,
Oh, won’t you stop picking on me?
