[Verse 1]
Surely something’s wrong with me,
Since I heard a melody,
Melody of mystery,
A tempting refrain has entered my brain,
No one seems to know a thing about this melody.

[Chorus]
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
Listen, listen, listen to that wonderful stain,
Listen, listen, listen while I hum it again,
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da,
It haunts me, it taunts me,
That tantalizing sound, follows me around,
My poor brain, oh what am I going to do, what am I going to do,
Everywhere I go I hear it again, what a refrain!
Tia-da-da,
Tia-da-da, in the air, everywhere,
It simply saddens me, gladdens me, sometimes maddens me,
My croony melody

[Verse 2]
In the night, when I’m asleep,
Through my dreams it seems to creep,
Rouses me from slumber deep,
And all through the day it’s with me to stay,
Still I must admit I’m wild about this melody.

[Chorus]
