    Lyrics

    So you'll be an Austrian nobleman
    commissioning a symphony in C
    which defies all earthly descriptions
    you'll be commissioning a symphony in C
    with money you squeezed from the peasants
    to your nephew you can give it as a present
    this magnificent symphony in C, you'll be
    commissioning a symphony in C

    completely filling the palace concert hall
    it's warm and golden like an oven that's wide open
    it has a melody both happy and sad
    built on victorious young triads
    you've entered the room with great caution
    though no one in the hall is even watching
    they are transfixed they are forgetting just to breathe
    they are so taken by your symphony in C

    You're sitting there thinking your thoughts
    they are not about what is but what is not
    your sitting there breathing in your breath
    you are seldom breathing life, but mostly death

    So you'll be an Austrian nobleman
    commissioning a symphony in C
    which defies all earthly descriptions
    you'll be commissioning a symphony in C
