I Got Rhythm    (1930)

In this fast and troubled world
We sometimes lose our way
But I am never lost
I feel this way because

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?
I've got good times, no more bad times
I've got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find him 'round my door
I've got starlight (I've got starlight)
I've got sweet dreams (I've got sweet dreams)
I've got my girl
Who could ask for, who could ask for more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find, you're never gonna find him 'round my door
Oh, I've got rhythm (hey! I've got rhythm)
I've got music (hey! I got music)
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

In this fast and troubled world

I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm

Verse:
Days can be sunny,
With never a sigh;
Don't need what money
Can buy.

Birds in the tree sing
Their dayful of song.
Why shouldn't we sing
Along?

I'm chipper all the day,
Happy with my lot.
How do I get that way?
Look at what I've got:

Refrain:
I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

I got daisies,
In green pastures,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble,
I don't mind him -
You won't find him
'Round my door.

I got starlight,
I got sweet dreams,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more -
Who could ask for anything more?
