The Show

By Jan Harmon
words and music © 1969
Come and play your pretty little violin for me. I will find my toeshoes and a yellow rosary - - te de. We will open up the curtains and the windows too - - and give a show - - we two! You will stand upon the kitchen chair and sweetly play. I will do a curtsy and a funny little tour-je-taix. I will keep on spinning-inning all around the room - and schottische with - the bristly broom. All the snoopy tourists who visit in the spring - - they will come and sit along the curb and gaily sing - te ding. And the people living-iving up and down the street - will bring a snack - to eat. And soon everyone will be dancing - and humming this little refrain. And the lady won't think to be asking his serial number or name - oh no! - - his social security claim - - oh no! - - the color or size of his frame - - oh no! - - or why just the hell he came - who could care? - - when the music and shiny moonlight fill the air? Zing - etc. Come and play your pretty little violin for me. I will find my toeshoes and a yellow rosary - - te de. We will shut up all the curtains and the windows too - - to say our show is through. Goodnight. Adieu.
