    Lyrics

    The concert was over in Carnagie Hall
    The maestro took bow after bow
    He said, â??My dear friends I have given my all.
    I'm sorry, it's all over now.â??
    When from the balcony way up high
    There suddenly came a mournful cry

    Oh, Mr. Paganini
    Please play my rhapsody
    And if you cannot play it won't you sing it?
    And if you can't sing you simply have to
    Scat

    Listen Paganini,
    We breathlessly await your masterful dtente
    Go on and sling it
    And if you can't sling it you simply have to
    Scat

    We heard your repertoire
    And at the final bar
    We greeted you with wild applause
    But what a great ovation
    Your interpretation of:
    â??I never cared much for moonlight skies
    I never blinked back at fireflies'
    Would do

    So, Paganini don't you be a meanie
    What have you up your sleeve?
    Come on and spring it
    And if you can't spring it, you simply have to
    Scat

    Listen Paganini, please play my rhapsody
    And if you cannot play it, wont you sing it?
    If the boys is bopping
    Aint no need in stopping
    Scat

    Listen Paganini,
    We breathlessly await your masterful dtente
    Come on and spring it
    If the boys is bopping
    Aint no need in stopping
    Scat

    I heard your repertoire and
    At the final bar
    We greeted you, we greeted you
    With wild applause
    But what a great ovation
    Your interpretation of
    Scat

    Listen Paganini
    Now, don't you be a meanie
    What have you up your sleeve?
    Come on and spring it
    And if you can't spring it, you simply have to
    Swing it
