The Lyrics

A tribute to one of my favorite composers, Johahn Sebastian Bach and my answer to the parody, "BACH,HE WROTE"
Tocatas, fugues
And the Brandenburg Concertos
I wrote all of those
Harpsichords I'm playing
Church organs also
Playing requiems and all the songs you know

I'm J.S. Bach
I am a composer

Art of Fugue
A fortress is God Almighty
And that cantata, Sleeper's awake
I write until I'm sleepy
Write my tunes with ease
From royalty to bishops I do please

I'm J.S. Bach
I am a composer

Orchestral suites
In B minor and D major
I even wrote one after my wife
Oh, you can place my music
In orchestras, even in Moog
Forever will my music be in vogue

I'm J.S. Bach
I am a composer

I write my tunes
And my tunes go on to enthrall you
They are immortalized with honor
Eugene Ormandy
Wendy Carlos, too!
No matter who performs them
It is true!

I'm J.S. Bach
I am a composer
And the Bach family rules
And composers will go on!

I too, like Wendy Carlos. And that fellow Walter with the same last name is pretty good, too.

A well-tempered parody.

Pacing is slightly off, but the rhymes are well-done and the subject is an interesting change from the original. 4-5-5 here!
