...DECOMPOSING COMPOSERS... by Monty Python
---------------------------................

*from 'Monty Python Sings' (1989)*


*CAPO 2nd FRET*

(Original Key: D)


Intro:

C  G/B  Am  Em, F  C, Dm  G7

Verse 1:

C                          G/B
 Beethoven's gone, but his music lives on,
    Am                          Em
And Mozart don't go shopping no more.
       F                    C
You'll never meet Liszt, or Brahms again,
    Dm                       G7
And Elgar doesn't answer the door.

Verse 2:

C                            G/B
 Schubert and Chopin used to chuckle and laugh,
           Am                   Em
Whilst com-posing a long sympho-ny.
        F                       C
But one hundred and fifty years later;
             Dm                     G
There's very little of them left to see.

Chorus 1:

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.

*(BEETHOVEN BREAK)*

Verse 3:

C                     G/B
 Handel and Haydn and Rachmaninov,
   Am                            Em
En-joyed a nice drink with their meal.
    F                    C
But nowadays no one will serve them,
          Dm                   G7
And their gravy is left to con-geal.

Verse 4:

C                    G/B
 Verdi and Wagner de-lighted crowds,
           Am              Em
With their highly original sounds.
       F                          C
The pi-anos they played are still working,
    Dm                          G
But they're both six feet under-ground.

Chorus 2:

C                        F  C             F                  G
 They're Decomposing Com-po-sers; there's less of them every year.
        C                       F
You can say what you like to De-bussy,
            G7                      C
But there's not much of him left to hear.

Coda:

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.

C                                             Am

Am                                   Dm
 Giacomo Meyerbeer; still alive, 186-3;
Am                Dm
 Not still alive, 1864.

Am           F        Am                     C                     F
 Modeste Mus-sorgsky; 1880, going to parties, no fun any more, 188-1.
C              G
 Johan Nepomuk Hummel;
C              F        G      C
 Chatting away nineteen to the dozen, with his mates,
(n.C)
 Down the pub, every evening, 1836, 1837; nothing.
