BY STRAUSS Lyrics


by . From An American in Paris.


Performed by Georges Guetary, Gene Kelly, and Oscar Levant

HENRI BAUREL:
The waltzes of Mittel Europa
They charm you and warm you within
While each day discloses
What Broadway composes
Is emptiness pounding on tin.

JERRY MULLIGAN: ADAM COOK:
Mein Herr!
Mein Herr!
Bitte, bitte!
Denke, danke!
Aufwiedersehen! Aufwiedersehen!

HENRI BAUREL:
How can I be civil
When hearing this drivel?
It's only for night-clubbing souses.
Oh give me the free 'n easy
Waltz that is Viennes-y
And go tell the band
If they want a hand
The waltz must be Strauss's

ALL
Ya ya ya
Give me oom pah pah...

HENRI BAUREL:
When I want a melody
Lilting through the house
Then I want a melody
By Strauss
It laughs, it sings
The world is in rhyme

ALL:
Swinging to three-quarter time

HENRI BAUREL:
Let the Danube flow along
And The Fledermaus!
Keep the wine and give me song

ALL:
By Strauss
By Jo, By Jing!
By Strauss is the thing

HENRI BAUREL:
So I say to ha cha cha
Heraus!
Just give me an oom pah pah
By Strauss!

When I want a melody
Lilting through the house
Then I want a melody
By Strauss
It laughs,

JERRY MULLIGAN:
Ah, ah, ah, ah.

HENRI BAUREL:
It sings

JERRY MULLIGAN:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.

HENRI BAUREL and JERRY MULLIGAN:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la!

HENRI BAUREL:
Let the Danube flow along
And The Fledermaus
Keep the wine and give me song
By Strauss
By Jo, By Jing!

ADAM COOK:
Gentlemen, the Emperor!

[Waltz]

All:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la...

HENRI BAUREL:
By Strauss!

ALL:
By Strauss!
