Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Away with the music of Broadway
Be off with your Irving Berlin
No, I give no quarter to Kern or Cole Porter
And Gershwin keeps pounding on tin
Verse 2
How can I be civil when hearing that drivel?
It's only for night-clubbing souses
Just give me the free-'n'-easy waltz, that is Vienneasy and
Go tell the band if they want a hand
The waltz must be Strauss's
Verse 3
Ja ja ja, give me oom-pa-pah
When I want a melody
Lilting through the house
Then I want a melody
By Strauss
It laughs, it sings, the world is in rhyme
Swinging in three-quarter time
Verse 4
Let the Danube flow along
And the Fledermauss
Keep the wine and give me song
By Strauss
Verse 5
By Jove, by Jing, by Strauss is the thing
So, I say to ha-cha-cha, heraus!
Just give me an oom-pa-pah by Strauss!
Verse 6
OPERATIC SCATS OF TUNES BY STRAUSS
Verse 7
Let the Danube flow along
And the Fledermauss
Keep the wine and give me song
By Strauss
Verse 8
By Jove, by Jing, by Strauss is the thing
So, I say to ha-cha-cha, heraus!
Just give me an oom-pa-pah by Strauss!
