Beethoven’s Wigfeaturing Richard Perlmutter

Please Don't Play Your Violin at Night (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Mozart)

Please Don't Play Your Violin At Night
By Richard Perlmutter

Please don't play your violin at night
Wolfgang go to bed, turn out the light
But I must play my violin
At night my violin
Must be beneath my chin
I love the music of the night
I won't turn out the light
Oh I love music in the night
But the music so late at night
Makes it quite hard to go to sleep, to sleep
But the music that I play at night is light
Maybe you should try counting sheep
Try counting sheep it’ll help you sleep
Sheep will never help me sleep
You should try counting sheep
No sheep won't help me sleep
Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep,
Sheep, sheep, sheep, sheep
Sheep won't help me sleep
Won't help me sleep
Try counting sheep!
Wolfgang I'm still not sleeping
Please stop the music
Dear it's just a little night music
Night music must stop
Night music is inspiring
Night music is too tiring
The melody is soaring
And I wish I were snoring
When I hear music in the night
It fills my heart with such delight
I hope the music will never end
And I will never ever sleep
Night music is like heaven
And it's half past eleven
The notes are stars that twinkle
I envy Rip Van Winkle
When I hear music in the night
I never want to see daylight
But dear the music will soon be over
And we both can go to sleep
Just a few more notes left to write
And then we'll finally turn out the light
And we'll say goodnight
That's the music of the night.
Good night.
