Fascinating Rhythm by Oscar Peterson

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

When a mess you're making!
The neighbours want to know
Why I'm always shaking
Just like a flivver

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 man I used to be!
Fascinating rhythm
Oh won't you stop picking on me?
