Play A Simple Melody


Won't you play a simple melody,
Like my mother sang to me?
One with good ol' fashioned harmony;
Play a simple melody!

Musical demon,
Set your honey a-dreamin',
Won't you play me some rag?
Just change that classical nag
To some sweet beautiful drag!

If you will play from a copy,
Of a tune that is choppy,
You'll get all my applause!
And that is simply because,
I want to listen to rag!


By
Irving Berlin
