Songs from ‘An Island in The Moon’
XIV. There’s Doctor Clash
THERE’S 1 Doctor Clash,
And Signor Falalasole,
O they sweep in the cash
Into their purse hole!
Fa me la sol, La me fa sol!        5
Great A, little A,
Bouncing B!
Play away, play away,
You’re out of the key!
Fa me la sol, La me fa sol!        10
Musicians should have
A pair of very good ears,
And long fingers and thumbs,
And not like clumsy bears.
Fa me la sol, La me fa sol!        15
Gentlemen! Gentlemen!
Rap! Rap! Rap!
Fiddle! Fiddle! Fiddle!
Clap! Clap! Clap!
Fa me la sol, La me fa sol!        20
Note 1. XIV] Sung by Mr. Scropprell, MS., chap xi. [back]
