Judy Garland's, "The Trolley Song"
The Lyrics:
Clang clang clang went the trolley!

Judy Garland's, "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart"
The Lyrics:
Zing went the strings of my heart.
"Zing" represents the sound a stringed instrument (perhaps a harp or violin) when its strings are struck by hand. Although it would be literally impossible for a heart's strings to make that noise. :)
