Irving Berlin Play A Simple Melody Lyrics

Last updated: 12/12/2010 10:00:00 AM

Part 1: (speak unless * is there
Wont play a simple melody
just like my mother sang to me
*she sang she sang to mee* (smooth)
one with good old fanioned harmony
why dont you play a simple melody
*a simple melody a simple melo-* (smooth)
(Now go straight into singing 2)

Part 2:
Won’t you Play A Simple Melody
Like my mother sang to me?
One with good old fashioned harmony
Play A Simple Melody

Part 3:
Musical demon, set your honey a’dreamin’
Won’t you play me some rag?
Just change that classical nag
To some sweet beautiful drag

If you will play from a copy of a tune that is choppy
You’ll get all my applause
And that is simply because
I want to listen to rag

Part 4:
My heart is palpitatin’
From all this syncopation
When I hear a ba-_nd
And when I’m with my honey
My feet start actin’ funny
When I hear a band
It’s really not surprisin’
My temp’rature keeps risin’
When I hear a ba-_nd
So pardon all my swoonin’
My crazy way of croonin’
When I hear a ba-_nd

Stop the Head Banging Music: Play some simple Melody! | Reviewer: evelyn | 12/11/10

If I were to become a DJ I would play Irving Berlin tunes to introduce this younger generation to real music which should have replaced this old
boring head throbbing, tunless rap stuff with beautiful love songs people could enjoy listening and dancing to.
