††††††††† A Symphony AND A Song††††††† (C)J.Birch 1998.

†††††††††††††††††

††††††††† Do you remember when you were blue

††††††††† & you didn't know what to do

††††††††† Do you remember what you did

††††††††† To get rid of it

 

††††††††† You played a little bit of jazz

††††††††† You played a little bit of that classical razzamatazz

††††††††† The beatles and beethoven

††††††††† A symphony and a song

 

††††††††† Well sometimes you must admit

††††††††† You do get sick of it

††††††††† Those same old discs

††††††† ††It really hard to make them fit , isn't it ?

 

††††††††† Now some people say

††††††††† It has got to be a symphony

††††††††† But I say they are wrong

††††††††† I say , "It has got to be a NEW song."

 

††††††††† If you had stayed a monkey

††††††††† You wouldn't have

††††††††† Ever , ever , ever

††††††††† Had the money

 

††††††††† And if you want a boom

††††††††† Then you

††††††††† Have to , have to , have to

††††††††† Play the NEW tune

 

††††††††† But you play a little bit of jazz

††††††††† You play a little bit of that classical razzamatazz

††††††††† The beatles and beethoven

††††††††† A symphony and a song

 

††††††††† Well I think you are wrong

 

††††††††† If you want a boom

††††††††† Then you

††††††††† Have to , have to , have to

††††††††† Play the NEW tune

 

††††††††† Cuz' if you stay a monkey

††††††††† Then you wont

††††††††† Ever , ever , ever

††††††††† Have the money !

††††††††

††††††††† I may be right

††††††††† I may be wrong

††††††††† A symphony AND a song ?

†††††††† The music died in 59

†††††††† Or so the story goes

†††††††† But for me it was December 9

†††††††† When evíry high sunk into a low

 

†††††††† AND HAD IT BEEN YOU, OR STU

†††††††† OR MAYBE EVEN PAUL

†††††††† WHAT DID WE DO?

†††††††† DID WE DO OUR ALL?

 

†††††††† Quarry Bank High in 52

†††††††† Or so the legend goes

†††††††† First day he was lookin for a fight

†††††††† Elastic shoes, Beatlemania

 

†††††††† AND HAD IT BEEN YOU, OR STU

†††††††OR MAYBE EVEN PAUL

†††††††† WHAT DID WE DO?

†††††††† DID WE DO OUR ALL?

 

†††††††† He was a writer and a fighter

†††††††† He gave the world his love

†††††††† They said he might have been a right off

†††††††† He came back with a shove

 

†††††††† And gave his love

 

†††††††† AND HAD IT BEEN THEN, OR NOW

†††††††† OR MAYBE NOT AT ALL

†††††††† (OR HAD IT BEEN US ALL)

†††††††† WHAT DID WE DO?

††††††††

†††††††† DID WE DO OUR ALL?
