THAT MESMERIZING MENDELSSOHN TUNE (MENDELSSOHN RAG)
(Words and Music by Irving Berlin, 1909)
Honey listen to that dreamy tune they're playin', won't you
tell me how on earth you keep from swayin'? Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn Spring Song tune; If you ever loved
me show me now or never, Lord, I wish they'd play that music
on forever, Umm! Umm! Oh, that Mendelssohn tune. My honey,
Don't you stand there, honey, can't you hear me sighin'?
Is you gwine to wait until I'm almost dyin'? Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn Spring Song tune; Get yourself
acquainted with some real live wooin', Make some funny
noises like there's something doin', Umm! Umm!
Oh, that Mendelssohn tune. My honey,
Love me to that ever lovin' Spring song melody, Please me,
honey, squeeze me to that Mendelssohn strain, Kiss me like
you would your mother, One good kiss deserves another, That's
the only music that was ever meant for me, That tantalizin,'
hypnotizin,' mesmerin' Mendelssohn tune.
