...DECOMPOSING COMPOSERS... by Monty Python
*from 'Monty Python Sings' (1989)*
*CAPO 2nd FRET*
(Original Key: D)
C G/B Am Em, F C, Dm G7
Beethoven's gone, but his music lives on,
And Mozart don't go shopping no more.
You'll never meet Liszt, or Brahms again,
And Elgar doesn't answer the door.
Schubert and Chopin used to chuckle and laugh,
Whilst com-posing a long sympho-ny.
But one hundred and fifty years later;
There's very little of them left to see.
C F C F G
They're Decomposing Com-po-sers; there's not much anyone can do.
C F G7 C
You can still hear Beet-hoven, but Beethoven cannot hear you.
Handel and Haydn and Rachmaninov,
En-joyed a nice drink with their meal.
But nowadays no one will serve them,
And their gravy is left to con-geal.
Verdi and Wagner de-lighted crowds,
With their highly original sounds.
The pi-anos they played are still working,
But they're both six feet under-ground.
C F C F G
They're Decomposing Com-po-sers; there's less of them every year.
You can say what you like to De-bussy,
But there's not much of him left to hear.
C Am Dm G C Am Dm G
Aah, aah... Claude A-chille De-bussy; died, nineteen eight-een.
C Am Dm G C
Christophe Willebald Gluck; died, 1787.
Carl Maria Von Weber; not at all well, 1825; died 1826.
Giacomo Meyerbeer; still alive, 186-3;
Not still alive, 1864.
Am F Am C F
Modeste Mus-sorgsky; 1880, going to parties, no fun any more, 188-1.
Johan Nepomuk Hummel;
C F G C
Chatting away nineteen to the dozen, with his mates,
Down the pub, every evening, 1836, 1837; nothing.
C G/B Am Em F Dm G7 G
