I LOVE A PIANO (Words and Music by Irving Berlin) - 1915 4-Bar Intro Verse 1 AS A CHILD, I WENT WILD WHEN A BAND PLAYED, HOW I RAN TO THE MAN WHEN HIS HAND SWAYED, CLAR-I-NETS WERE MY PETS AND A SLIDE TROM-BONE I THOUGH WAS SIM-PLY DI-VINE. BUT TO-DAY, WHEN THEY PLAY, I COULD HISS THEM, EV-'RY BAR IS A JAR TO MY SYS-TEM. BUT THERE'S ONE MUS-I-CAL IN-STRU-MENT THAT I CALL MINE; Chorus 1 I LOVE A PIAN-O, I LOVE A PIAN-O, I LOVE TO HEAR SOME-BOD-Y PLAY UP-ON A PIAN-O, A GRAND PI-A-NO, IT SIM-PLY CAR-RIES ME A- WAY I KNOW A FINE WAY TO TREAT A STEIN-WAY, I LOVE TO RUN MY FIN-GERS O'ER THE KEYS, THE I-VOR-IES. AND WITH THE PED-AL, I LOVE TO MED-DLE, WHEN PAD-DA-REW-SKI COMES THIS WAY, I'M SO DE-LIGHT-ED, IF I'M IN-VI-TED TO HEAR A LONG-HAIRED GEN-IUS PLAY. SO YOU CAN KEEP YOUR FID-DLE AND YOUR BOW, GIVE ME A P -I -A -N -O, OH, OH, I LOVE TO STOP RIGHT BE-SIDE AN UP-RIGHT, OR A HIGH-TONED BA-BY GRAND. Verse 2 WHEN A GREEN TET-RA-ZINE STARTS TO WAR-BLE, I GROW COLD AS AN OLD PIECE OF MAR-BLE, I AL-LUDE TO THE CRUDE LIT-TLE PAR-TY SING-ER WHO DON'T KNOW WHEN TO PAUSE AT HER BEST I DE-TEST THE SO-PRAN-O, BUT I RUN TO THE ONE AT THE PIAN-O. I AL-WAYS LOVE THE AC-COMP-'NI-MENT AND THAT'S BE-CAUSE: Chorus 2 I LOVE A PIAN-O, I LOVE A PIAN-O, I LOVE TO HEAR SOME-BOD-Y PLAY UP-ON A PIAN-O, A GRAND PI-A-NO, IT SIM-PLY CAR-RIES ME A- WAY I KNOW A FINE WAY TO TREAT A STEIN-WAY, I LOVE TO RUN MY FIN-GERS O'ER THE KEYS, THE I-VOR-IES. AND WITH THE PED-AL, I LOVE TO MED-DLE, WHEN PAD-DA-REW-SKI COMES THIS WAY, I'M SO DE-LIGHT-ED, IF I'M IN-VI-TED TO HEAR A LONG-HAIRED GEN-IUS PLAY. SO YOU CAN KEEP YOUR FID-DLE AND YOUR BOW, GIVE ME A P -I -A -N -O, OH, OH, I LOVE TO STOP RIGHT BE-SIDE AN UP-RIGHT, OR A HIGH-TONED BA-BY GRAND. (Contributed by Andy & Mogg - November 2002)
