The Trolley Song Lyrics - Judy Garland

Review The Song (2)



With her high starched collar and her high topped shoes
And her hair piled high upon her head
She went to find a jolly hour on the trolley
And she found my heart instead

With my light brown derby and my bright green tie
I was quite the lonesomest of men
I started to yen so I counted to ten
Then I counted to ten again

Clang, clang, clang went the trolley
Ding, ding, ding went the bell
Zing, zing, zing went my heart strings
For the moment I saw her I fell

Chug, chug, chug went the motor
Thump, thump, thump went the brake
Thump, thump, thump went my heart strings
When she smiled I could feel the car shake

I tipped my hat, I took a seat
I said I hoped I hadn't stepped upon her feet
"Say, what's your name?", I lost my breath
She looked so lovely that it scared me half to death

Oh, buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Pop, pop, pop went the wheels
Stop, stop, stop went my heart strings
As she started to go then I started to know how it feels
When the universe reels

I tipped my hat, I took a seat
I said I hoped I hadn't stepped upon her feet
I asked her name, then lost my breath
She looked so lovely that it scared me half to death

Oh, buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Pop, pop, pop went the wheels
Stop, stop, stop went my heart strings
As she started to leave I took hold of her sleeve with my hand
And as if it were planned
She stayed on with me and it was grand just to stand
With her hand holding mine to the end of the line

End of the line
The end of the line

wrong, so wrong... | Reviewer: josh | 12/20/11

The problem with pages like this they get the lyrics wrong... your order is wrong. Listen to the song and proof read before you post. Another reason americans are stupid and lazy. Check your work. It takes 5 minutes. I'm just saying



The Trolley Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/3/08

The scene in "Met Me in St. Louis" where she sang this song is so well-done -Garland looked so radiant in her modest black get-up amidst the flashier outfits of the other women on the trolley. When she sees the man she sings about, she is visibly overcome, and sings so beautifully this song on the rocking trolley. She dances about like a little girl who found a new toy; her very pretty eyes flashed as she described this mystery man to the other girls. At the end of the song, she realizes that the guy was right next to her, and the scene ends with Garland pointedly embarassed, reclining from her stupor into a chair, giving him a sheepish "'sup?" look. A classic song that has stayed fresh to this day.
