The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to everyone with absolute pitch. For them, anything Modernist or Avant-Garde music is a total pain in the ear. It is more a curse than blessing.
I'd like to write a song or two
that anyone could fance -
just perfect fifths and inverse fourths
and none with dissonance

I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony
just pentatonic melodies
and all in major C

I'd like to hear the music play
in tuned, well-tempered pitch
with lyrics rhyme and match the time
and no atonal itch -

I'd like to check oscilloscope
And see the sound as curve
and all transforms of Fourier
and see the waveform swerve

(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing
(That the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

I'd like to write a song or two
that anyone could fance -
just perfect fifths and inverse fourths
and none with dissonance

Can't stand the song or the artists, but I can stand your parodies. Nice work.

@MasonR i don't think anyone can fix the finnish language! if the five million of them sang the song above, the tourists would all flee to Aland! a rubbish fantasy anyhow
