Commissioning a Symphony in C

This song is by Cake and appears on the album Comfort Eagle (2001).

So you'll be an Austrian nobleman commissioning a symphony in C
Which defies all earthly descriptions, you'll be commissioning a symphony in C
With money you squeezed from the peasants, to your nephew you can give it as a present
This magnificent symphony in C. You'll be commissioning a symphony in C

Completely filling the palace concert hall. It's warm and golden like an oven that's wide open
It has a melody both happy and sad, built on victorious known triads
You've entered the room with great caution, though no one in the hall is even watching
They are transfixed, they are forgetting just to breathe. They are so taken by your symphony, ah, in C

You're sitting there thinking your thoughts. They are not about what is but what is not
You're sitting there breathing in your breath; you are seldom breathing life, but mostly death
So you'll be an Austrian nobleman commissioning a symphony in C
Which defies all earthly descriptions. You'll be commissioning a symphony in C

John McCrea
