"There's a Little Wheel a Turnin'"


       
 
1.
There's a little wheel a-turnin' in my heart.
There's a little wheel a-turnin' in my heart.
In my heart, in my heart,
There's a little wheel a-turnin' in my heart.
 
       
 
2.
There's a little song a-singin' in my heart.
There's a little song a-singin' in my heart.
In my heart, in my heart,
There's a little song a-singin' in my heart.


       
  3. There's a little frog a-leapin' in my heart.
There's a little frog a-leapin' in my heart.
In my heart, in my heart,
There's a little frog a-leapin' in my heart.
 
       
  4. I see the sun a-risin' in my heart.
I see the sun a-risin' in my heart.
In my heart, in my heart,
I see the sun a-risin' in my heart.
