Testo della canzone Tra La La La 24 Sep 1913 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:]
Once a vocal teacher
Said to Mabel Beecher
I think your singing voice is very canary!
It needs cultivation
For a demonstration
I’ll charge you ‘Ten’ to cultivate it
She paid it
Twice a week Miss Mabel scrapes the money up somehow
Twice a week he teaches her to vocalize and now

All day long she’s singing
Tra, la, la, la! Tra, la, la, la!
When her voice starts ringing
Tra, la, la, la! Tra, la, la, la!
All the neighbors get together and cry
It’s most unbearable, terrible!
Why do they let her suffer?
Ev’rybody hollers Tie a can-o to her Soprano!
All her aunts and uncles when they heard her
Holler’d Murder!
Ev’ry day a neighbor moves away
From her Tra, la, la, la! Tra, la, la, la!
Tra, la, la, la, la!

[2nd verse:]
Landlord sent a Cable
Saying Dear Miss Mabel
Your voice is good for breaking leases to pieces
My advice, Miss Beecher
Is give up your teacher
Your singing voice needs no improving
They’re moving!
June, July and August finds her relatives in tears
Just because they must go ‘round with earmuffs on their ears
