Mr. Paganini   live 78

1978
Hudba: Sam Coslow
Text: Sam Coslow

The concert was over in Carnegie Hall
The maestro took bow after bow
He said: My dear friends I have given my all,
I'm sorry, it's all over now.

When from the balcony
Way up high
There suddenly came
A mournful cry

Oh, Mr. Paganini
Please play my rhapsody
And if you cannot play it
Won't you sing it?
And if you can't sing
You simply have to

(scat)

Listen Paganini
We breathlessly await
Your masterful détente
Go on and sling it
And if you can't sling it
You simply have to

(scat)

We heard your repertoire
Hm, and at the final bar
We greeted you
With round applause
But what a great ovation
Hm, your interpretation
I never cared much for moonlight skies
I never blinked back at fireflies'
So, do

So Paganini
Don't you be a meanie
What have you up your sleeve?
Come on and spring it
And if you can't spring it
You simply have to

(scat)

Listen Paganini
Please play my rhapsody
And if you cannot play it
Won't you sing it?
If the boys is bopping
Ain't no need in stopping

(scat)

Listen Paganini
We breathlessly await
Your masterful détente
Come on and spring it
If the boys is bopping
Ain't no need in stopping

(scat)

I heard your repertoire and
At the final bar
We greeted you, we greeted you
With round applause
But what a great ovation
Your interpretation

(scat)

Listen Paganini
Now don't you be a meanie
What have you up your sleeve?
Come on and spring it
And if you can't spring it
You simply have to sing
