Play My Song
By Richard Perlmutter


Once a pretty young girl was rovin’
Had a heart no boy could ever win
But the young composer Beethoven
Knew the young girl played the mandolin
So to win her heart Beethoven wrote this song
But she wouldn’t play it no she did him wrong
She did him wrong wrong wrong
Oh the pretty girl kept rovin’
Now Beethoven’s crying all night long
Josephine Josephine baby don’t treat me mean
Don’t be mean Josephine Josephine
Play my song  play my song play my song
Oh Josephine oh Josephine stop treatin’ me mean oh Josephine oh Josephine
Once a pretty young girl was rovin
With a heart Beethoven could win    
So that brokenhearted Beethoven      
Never wrote again for mandolin
Josephine Josephine baby don’t treat me mean
Don’t be mean Josephine Josephine
Play my song play my song play my song
Oh Josephine oh Josephine stop treatin’ me mean oh Josephine oh Josephine
Don’t treat me mean don’t treat me mean oh Josephine
