The Mountain King


Ah, the fugue and pizzicato
Hearken to the flute and strings
Listen to Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite
In the Hall of The Mountain King.
Fill your heart with the great Vivaldi
Concerto in 'C' for trumpet and strings
Lend an ear to Sibelius...Finlandia
And Schumann's romantic symphonies.

Call for the music from over the sea
And you will find peace and tranquility
Beautiful sopranos will sing for thee
Soothing your mind with melody...
Oh the choirs of gentle voices
Singing their madrigals of spring
But ah, the fugue and pizzicato
In the Hall of the Mountain King.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
