​Violins

This song is by Golden Earring and appears on the album To The Hilt (1975).

And the classic ways still on play
Violins bitter sweet
String quartet - pass around the hat
You broke my heart - don't you hurt my head...
After Violet and me saw the Paganini movie
We took a walk around the block to digest
The grand finale
A street-music man with shades and cane
Played the fiddler insane - for a case load of
Spare change and the smiles of people passing
Between morning paper sins and waves of violins
It said they found him dead - his bow had
Made him bad friends
Cold blooded, warm hearted violin
Hooked on high speed energy
Cold blooded, warm hearted violin
Cats gut pumpin' adrenalin
Warm blooded - cold hearted violins
See 'em live tonight in the city...
And the classic way - still on play
Violins better sweet
String quartet - pass around the hat
You broke my heart - don't you hurt my head
I've gotta find a little peace of mind
Cause the real thing is a mean thing
I guess nobody knew - the Barcelona Zoo
Has an albino monkey - that can trigger the mood
And provoke - monkey motions
So when the shit flies high -
Through the Barcelona sky - the crowd stands by
A - cheering!
I can hear 'em playin'
Kinda light 'n' neat
All the gals 're swayin'
The guys are in for meat
It's all cute 'n' rosy
Till the needle hits a crack
Listen to that screech repeatin'
Watch the flags go slack
Forever
