I'M THE GUY WHO FOUND THE LOST CHORD (Jimmy Durante) Jimmy Durante I was sitting at my piano, the other day But my mind was ill at ease They were coming to take it away that afternoon I was all by myself in a mellow mood Improvising symphonies My right hand was playing Mozart's minuet And at the same time my left hand was playing; have a banana; from Carmen And at the same time my mouth was whistling a sextet from Luicini And at the same time What do you think my foot was doing? While keeping time it was cracking walnuts; see I had to eat too. Then in the midst of all soliloquy I found it, I found it The Lost Chord, The Lost Chord! So let's celebrate I'm feeling great I'm the guy that found the Lost chord I'll have my name in the hall of fame; cos I went and found that lost chord Everyone knows Tchaikovsky wasn't recognised for 300 years Brahms wasn't recognised for 400 years Beethoven wasn't recognised for 500 years But I can't wait that long I've only got two changes of clothes! People said I was mad. but that didn't trouble me They said Mozart was mad They said Puccini was mad They said Louis was mad Who's Louis? My uncle, he was mad! So let's celebrate I'm feeling great I'm the guy that found the Lost chord You know it wasn't easy finding that Lost chord Working in my attic I didn't sleep for days and days I'd be in terrible shape if I hadn't slept nights! First I put an A flat with a B minor Then I put a B minor with and F major Then I put and F minor with a B major Then I tried an A and a B and a B and a C And a C and a D and a D and E and an E and a F And a F and a G; What a piano no apostrophe's ! And this is what I came up with (plays wrong chord) What's happened that isn't the chord (plays wrong chord) Neither is that (plays wrong chord) Neither is that (plays wrong chord) And neither is that! I lost the chord a catatstrophe I'm gonna sit down on the keyboard of this piano until the chord is return (sits down bum plays the right chord) That's it the lost chord! I found it, I found by sitting on the piano keyboard Strange I usually play by ear! So let's celebrate I'm feeling great I'm the guy that found the Lost chord (Transcribed by Henry Watkinson - April 2003)
