Paul Austin Kelly – Opera Rap lyrics

Well, I like Rossini and I like Puccini
And I like to listen while I'm eatin' linguini
I like opera, man, and it's flippin' my switch
Make my thumbs itch
Make my bum twitch

I like William Tell and Don Giovanni
I think opera plots are really funny
I think opera rules cause it makes me giggle
My tonsils jiggle
Chin hairs wiggle

I found a stack of old opera records called LPs
They don't look nothing like my CDs
I try to stick'em in my Sony but they won't go
Gotta get a turntable for my stereo

I like listening to opera on Radio Three
Every afternoon while I'm sipping my tea
Tell that little man to come and sing it for me
Il mio tesoro intanto
Sing it Tonto! If you want to

I like to see this one soprano with a heaving chest
Tight little dress, hair a mess
She's squealing something in Italian, anybody's guess
Follie, follie!

I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so...
I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so...

Now there's Pavarotti and Carreras and Domingo
Are they tryin' to be another John, Paul, George and Ringo?
When they're singing out at Wembley I get wobbly knees
Women toss their knickers at'em when they sing high C's.
Ridi, Pagliacco, sul tuo amore infranto...

Well, Carmen's she's a fox but then there's Aida
She's 16 tons! What the heck they feed her?
Old Radames had better be a wealthy dude
The way she's gobblin' up a mess of fine Italian food

Am I telling all my friends about my high-brow habits?
When you find a piece a heaven, well you‘d better grab it!
I got another dirty secret I hold onto tight
I like watching Leslie Garrett on the box at night

I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so...
I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so...
I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so weird, I'm so...
