I Hate Music!
by Leonard Bernstein


I hate music! But I like to sing: la dee da da dee; la dee da dee. But that's not music, not what I call music. No, sir. Music is a lot of men in a lot of tails, making lots of noise like a lot of females; Music is a lot of folks in a big dark hall, where they really don't want to be at all; with a lot of chairs and a lot of airs, and a lot of furs and diamonds! Music is silly! I hate music! But I like to sing: la dee da da dee: la dee da dee: la dee da dee.
