Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Orchestra Song - German Lyrics?
Subject: Orchestra Song
I know this is not quite within the realm of the Mudcat, but you all are usually so helpful. Does anybody know the words to "The Orchestra Song"? It's a vocal piece, with at least five parts. The lyrics to each part are about an instrument in the orchestra and what sound it makes. Parts are sung individually, then all sung together, and it sounds like...an orchestra. A friend sang this with her family (in the US) some time in the late 1950s-early 1960s, but she said her father sang it in college (mid 1940s). It made a brief appearance in the movie "You've Got Mail," with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, but was not listed in the credits. Any help?
