From Guys And Dolls - I've Never Been in Love Before Lyrics

I'm full of foolish song
And out my song must pour
So please forgive this helpless haze I'm in
I've really never been in love before

Wha does "out my song must pour" mean? Thank you.

    I know this as 'fronting'. This happens in spoken English, not necessarily for the sake of rhyme but for the sake of emphasis, and can sound completely natural in the right context. Think also of the nursery rhyme:

    Incy-wincy spider climbed up the spout;
    Down came the rain and washed the spider out;
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain;
    And the incy-wincy spider climbed up the spout again.

    No idea did I have that this was called fronting. Thank you.
