Melody Time Lyrics written by George Weiss and Bennie Benjamin, performed by Buddy Clark
Melody Time It's time to swing along To a happy land of sound Where love is the thing Melody Time It's time for sweet romance Won't you give your heart a chance To join in and sing? Take a tip from the birds You don 't need words For music has charm It's the language of love When your love's in your arms Rhythm and rhyme Sure help a heart along So come on and sing a song.
