The Lyrics

Some composers of the Romantic period: Franz Liszt (1811-1886); Charles Gounod (1818-1893); Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849); Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), transitional figure who worked first in the classical tradition and second in the Romantic; Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880), composer of "Tales of Hoffman" and "Orpheus in the Underworld," based on "Orfeo ed Euridice" by Christoph Gluck; Richard Wagner(1813-1883); Hector Berlioz (1803-1869); Franz Schubert (1797-1828), composer of the "Trout Quintet." George Sand, nom de plume of Aurore Dudevant (1804-1876), Chopin's lover; sometimes dressed as a man. "Piscine": fishy. "Ono": Hawaiian fish.
So, what genre of music really moves you?
Me, I groove to 19th century airs.

Liszt 'n'
Those Romantic souls get me wet.
Gounod!. . .Prod miss!. . .Nocturne swell!
O! O! O! O!

Glib glissandos--I'm not sere,
But I think George Sand was queer.
I dig Ludwig 2,
2, 2, 2, 2.

To those Romantics gets me wet
Jacques Off's "Hoffman" tales are swell
"Orfeo"! O!

Chromatic licks prick my ear;
He had gorgeous hands, I hear.
Mine give lovin' too,

Wagner gets me vet; I get veak-kneed too;
O! Berlioz! "Je me fous!"*

To the "Trout Quintet" of Schubert
Always prompts a piscine smell,
O! O! Ono.

Digital tricks were revered. . .
Played four-hands with Sand, I hear.
I digit-love too,
Too-oo-oo-oo. . . .

*politely: "I love myself."
