The Lyrics

That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no
That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no
That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no

Funniest name I ever heard
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)
And he dresses funny--looks like a bird
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)
It's funny things that he sings and is sayin'
It's magic bells that he's playin'

Pa-pa-pa-Papageno
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)
Pa-pa-pa-Papageno
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)
Hoot, hoot, hoot?
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)
Coot, coot, coot?
(That's Papage-no-no, Papage-no-no)

He's got a girlfriend--guess her name
(That's Papagen-n_-n_, Papagen-n_-n_)
His and hers but for one letter are the same
(That's Papagen-n_-n_, Papagen-n_-n_)
OK, if you haven't yet figured it out
Change "o" to "a" and then give a shout:

Pa-pa-pa-Papagena
(That's Papage-na-na, Papage-na-na)
Pa-pa-pa-Papagena
(That's Papage-na-na, Papage-na-na)
Hoot, hoot, hoot?
(That's Papage-na-na, Papage-na-na)
Coot, cute, beaut?
(That's Papage-na-na, Papage-na-na)

They mirror a couple in the show
Higher order Pamina and Tamino
It's a parable, I understand,
'bout Masonry; Mozart was a fan.

Pa-pa-pa-Papageno, etc., ad nauseum
