Song Meaning
Verse 1
The concert was over in Carnagie 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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Listen Paganini,
We breathlessly await your masterful datente
Go on and sling it
And if you can't sling it you simply have to
Scat
Verse 4
We heard your repertoire
And at the final bar
We greeted you with wild applause
But what a great ovation
Your interpretation of:
Ã????I never cared much for moonlight skies
I never blinked back at fireflies'
Would do
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
Listen Paganini,
We breathlessly await your masterful datente
Come on and spring it
If the boys is bopping
Ain't no need in stopping
Scat
Verse 8
I heard your repertoire and
At the final bar
We greeted you, we greeted you
With wild applause
But what a great ovation
Your interpretation of
Scat
Verse 9
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
Swing it
