Musical B’s
By Richard Perlmutter

Do you know your musical B's?

Yes! Beethoven, Bach...uh

Don't forget Brahms please.

Teacher I can learn them with ease
Beethoven, Bach...uh

Don't forget Brahms, please
Study all your musical B's
Beethoven, Bach...

Don't forget Brahms please

Teacher, I know they come in threes

Beethoven, Bach, and the third...uh

Don't forget Brahms, please
Who's the first B?

Bach, born in 1685.
Second of three?
Beethoven, he was next alive

Who came third - he wrote four very lovely symphonies?

Who?

Do not forget it is Brahms, please!
Which B taught school?

Bach - he was very scholarly
Which B broke rules?

Beethoven - many musically

Which did not write one opera, but several rhapsodies?

Who?

Do not forget it is Brahms, please!
I just study B's all day and night

But you still can't get the third one right!

I'll remember his name very soon

Better hurry, school gets out in June
Give me one clue
Class? He was born in Germany!
What year, thank you?
Class? Eighteen hundred thirty three
I like this game
Who's the third one of the B's?
What was his name?
Do not forget it is Brahms, please!
Now, recite your musical B's
Beethoven, Bach...

Don't forget Brahms, please

Teacher, this should sure be a breeze
Beethoven, Bach...oh!
Don't forget Brahms, please
Here's the big test
I'll start with Bach and name them all!
Now name the rest
Easy! Beethoven, I recall
If you want an A, just name the third of all the B's

Who?
Do not forget it is Brahms, please!
It's Brahms, please!
