3. My Little Brother (lyrics)

Solo:
Verse 1
My little brother and I
Don’t always see eye to eye
He loves to play the fool
And drive me up the wall
But most the time he’s really not that bad….I guess

Verse 2
My little brother would cry
Choir:
My little brother would cry
Solo:
When at the piano he would try
Choir:
When at the piano he would try
Solo:
To play a major third
Choir:
La, la
Solo:
But this is what he heard
Choir:
Wah, wah
Solo & Choir
Notes that didn’t sound good made him sad

Verse 3
Choir:

My little brother at three
Solo:
My little brother at three
Choir:
Wanted to play piano like me
Solo:
Wanted to play piano like me
Choir:
He listened to me play
And learnt it right away
He wrote music before he wrote words

Verse 4
Solo:

My little brother at four
Wrote his very first score
My father cried with joy
To realise his boy
Was more than just another Salzburg lad

Verse 5
Solo:

My little brother at five
Choir:
My little brother at five
Solo:
Made his music come alive
Choir:
Made his music come alive
Solo:
He wrote it in his head
While lying in his bed
Like magic all the notes would just appear
Verse 6
Choir:

My little brother at six
Learnt another of his tricks
He taught himself to play
The violin one day
Solo:
You should have seen the look he got from Dad

Choir:
At seven he had four piano pieces published for the public to perform on piano in their parlours
At eight he played so perfectly before the king and queen
At nine he was wrote some symphonies as easy as you please
At ten he wrote another just to keep his mind at ease
And when he reached eleven he thought to himself
‘I need something new if I’m gonna be a star’
Solo:
So what do you think he did?
Choir:
He wrote an o-o-o-o, o-o-o-o, o-o-o-o, o-o-o-per-aaaaaaaaa!
Solo:
My little brother.
