The Lyrics

Hey Ode To Joy
yeah hey

Yeah,
I was a fiddle player
Playin' in a bluegrass band
I had no problems before yeah
Hearing a string orchestra
And everything around me,
yeah
Feeling like they just had to go
And I decided quickly,
Yes I did
To allegro and check out the show
Yeah they were

Sitting, observing
and absorbing the movements
And just when it hit me some Fraiser Crane look-alike shouted
Play that chamber music Maestro
Play that chamber music right
Play that chamber music Maestro
Tune up the cello and play that chamber music till you die
Till you die,
oh till you die

Gonna play that cognac drinkin' chamber music, yeah

Spoken:
Hey wait a minute
At first it felt uneasy
Changin' to chamber music
It seemed so complicated
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now I understand it
I understand it
It's much better every way
I now realize that Mozart
Amadeus
He was the Brian Wilson of his day

When they were...
Sitting, observing
and absorbing the movements
And just when it hit me some Fraiser Crane look-alike shouted
Play that chamber music Maestro
Play that chamber music right
Play that chamber music Maestro
Tune your viola and play that chamber music till you die
Till you die,
oh till you die

They shouted play that chamber music
Play that Bach harpsicord
Play some more Tchiakovsky
Gotta keep on playin'
Chamber music
Ludwig Von Beethoven

There's always room for cello. I like it.

Picture it in my mind being performed by Kronos Quartet, "sung" by Kelsey Grammar...or Edward Herrman. 555
