Parody Song Title:
"James Taylor Sings Nessun Dorma"
Way up here opera season’s in gear
Tickets craved for ‘Nessun Dorma’ this year.
To download – credit-card and name – Baby James
Sounds so moving, I must see this show
Or “TuranDOTT” – some folks thought Giacomo *
Said that before he said ‘ciao’.
French and German version of a Persian tale
'bout a Princess of China who detested all males
Empathize with hero who’s beheaded if fails.
Rang the gong, and her three riddles I got
Kept my head but the next risk is the same
I’ll live if she won’t learn my name.
'Nessun dorma' means that no one should sleep
Not even the Princess who’s a sadistic creep
Secret hid within me; if divulged, price is steep.
Might lose my life when the rising sun shows
Or get a wife; I could still win this game,
If no-one knows my name.
Vanish, o night! set stars, give me hope.
The folks back home must think I’m smoking some dope.
She’ll get a long kiss, end the silence, name on her lips.
Wow! The princess Turandot
Must be quite a beauty, but I don’t really know
And oh! Turandot
To close I’ll sing ‘Vincerò’. **
A Puccini opera that I don’t really know
I guess I’ll have to go now.
Talking ‘bout “Turandot”
(Big ol’ op’ra-house playin’ “Turandot”) ... fade
* Giacomo Puccini, composer, died in 1924 before he had quite completed the opera “Turandot”. The aria Nessun Dorma in the third act is the best-known piece of music in this work.
** Italian - I will win; repeated x 3 as last words of the famous aria.
