TESTO DEL LIED"A sharp, where you'd expect a natural"
A sharp, where you'd expect a natural, A natural, where you'd expect a sharp; No rule observed but the exceptional, And then (first happy thought!) bring in a Harp!
No bar a sequence to the bar behind, No bar a prelude to the next that comes; Which follows which you really needn't mind -- But (second happy thought!) bring in your drums!
For harmonies, let wild discords pass; Let key be blent with key in hideous hash; Then (for last happy thought!) bring in your Brass! And clang, clash, clatter -- clatter, clang and clash!
