The Lyrics

I thought I'd take the mickey out of waltz violinist Andre Rieu because he is so popular in Australia that every music store has a massive big shelf with several rows of Andre Rieu CDs and DVDs and in one store, the owner had one of his concert DVDs playing almost every single day for 3 years straight!!! And from what I seen of that concert, the majority of the fans are over 50 dressed in conservative fashion and look like church goers, so I thought I'd write this parody in dedication to Andre Rieu and his fans for a bit of fun.
Hey, do it now
Yeah, hey

Hey, Once I was a guitar player, playin' in a rock and roll band
I never had no problems, yeah
Rockin’ out loud in my band
But last night we played some church, yeah
Those old folks didn’t like our sound
So I grabbed a violin (Yes I did)
And played a sweet harmonious sound
Yeah, they were dancin’ and waltzin’ and swayin’ to the sweet strings
And just when it hit me some chubby big old lady shouted
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right
Play that Ri-eu music young man
Pick up that violin and play that Andre music to us olds
To us olds
Oh ya ya

I don’t like Andre Rieu
I think his music’s really uncool
How could I be so foolish (How could I)
To play violin and look like a tool
I tried to grab my guitar
But those sweet strings have got to my brain
I said, I must go back there (Back to the church)
And play some Andre Rieu again
Yeah, they were dancin’ and waltzin’ and swayin’ to the sweet strings
And just when it hit me some woolen vested old man shouted
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right
Play that Ri-eu music young man
Pick up that violin and play that Andre music to us olds
To us olds, ya
To us olds

(Gonna play that string symphony Andre music, yeah)

[Violin solo and old couples waltzing around the church]

(Hey, wait a minute)
Now first it wasn’t easy
Changin’ rock and roll to waltz
But I began to like him
And listened to his classical schmaltz
So now I play his music (Andre Rieu music)
And waltzing out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin' (no I won't)
Of how those sweet strings got me that day
Yeah, they were dancin’ and waltzin’ and swayin’ to the sweet strings
And just when it hit me those old conservative Christians shouted
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right
Play that Ri-eu music young man
Pick up that violin and play that Andre music to us olds
To us olds, ya
Yeah, to us olds

They shouted play that Andre music
(Play that Andre music)
Play that Andre music
(You Gotta keep on playin' Rieu music)
Play that Andre music
(Play that Andre music)
Play that Andre music
(Come and play it sweeter, ya)
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right, ya
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right
Play that Andre music young man
Play that Andre music right

I am always struck by the similarities between Rieu's group and the Johann Strauss (The Younger) Orchestra. I think Rieu is a good thing...and so is this parody. ;D
