That’s My Boy

Mozart's father Leopold makes his entrance with a short recitative. Joined by the choir, he then launches into a rollocking Gilbert and Sullivan-style number about his son. This song is part of the mini-opera A Boy Called Wolfie.

2. That’s My Boy (lyrics)

Solo:Leopold
That’s my boy
My pride and joy
The apple of my eye
He may look small
But he’s not at all
And here’s the reason why

Solo & Choir:
He’s going to be a big wig in the business
The whole wide world will know his name for sure
And even in two hundred years and maybe fifty more
They’ll say that kid from Salzburg knew the score
So here’s a name to remember, I hope it’s not too long
I thought of it myself and so I’m sure that it will roll right off your tongue…..

Choir:
CHORUS
Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart
It may sound preposterous, a bit like hippopotamus
Theophilus is Greek and in the Latin it is Amadeus
Mozart preferred Amade which is to say it ‘en Francais’
But Gottlieb is the German way

Solo:
What do you think, does it really stink?
Shorter might be best
Choir:
No, don’t fret, it’s a sure fire bet
Let’s put it to the test

Choir:
Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart
It may sound preposterous, a bit like hippopotamus
Theophilus is Greek and in the Latin it is Amadeus
Mozart preferred Amade which is to say it ‘en Francaise’
But Gottlieb is the German

Solo:
We should have called him Herman

Choir:
Spoken: HERMAN MOZART!?

Solo:
Spoken: Ah, let’s just call him Wolfie

Choir:
He’s really just a boy
With music as his toy
He’s just like you and me
This boy called Wolfie!
