Lyrics: 

Triple Meter August 11-14, 2020 #17
Elizabeth Singleton

Intro
The Danube So Blue plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink.

I’m stuck in triple meter.
It’s all my husband’s fault.
CDs he plays each morning
Are waltzes of Strauss.

The Vienna Phil on New Year’s Eve,
He’s playing their whole collection.
Three-quarter time day after day
Wormed into my brain without correction.

Chorus
The Danube So Blue, clink, clink, clink, clink
Has ruined 4/4. Methinks, methinks.

Their performances are exquisite
Some of the best players ever heard.
“Please release me from this prison,”
4/4’s dying words.

Outro
The Danube So Blue plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink, plink



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You need to sneak some Dave Brubeck into his listening. All sorts of fun time signatures there! Biggrin

I enjoy the conversational tone of this lyric.
