Give us a classical music limerick!

Let us know what you think.

  • Hersh

    Said Gershwin to friends in the press,
    “This Hardy libretto’s a mess!
    Though I’m an admirer,
    I’ll stick with my Ira.
    Who’d want to see Porgy and Tess?”

  • Cathy Terdich # 2– 4 U John

    I danced to the music of Strauss
    In a graceful Viennese waltz
    All the evening I spun
    I had so much fun
    In the arms of my wonderful spouse.

  • Jim

    A music professor named Locke
    Found a fragmented score in a sock;
    Said he, “It is too curt
    To be by Franz Shoe-bert,
    But it smells more like Foote than like Bach.”

  • Vonnie Lorber

    When Scarlatti ceases to be delightful
    Then I become a trifle spiteful
    And the following words address to the Muse
    “How can you me to amuse refuse!”

  • TONY FICO, Cicero Il

    LIMERICK ENTRY: Carl Grapentine, Morning Show host, anglophile in extremis,
    longs to be dubbed — against all hope — “Sir Carl Grapentinis.”
    — A. Fico, Cicero IL

      That’s a clever limerick. Very amusing.

  • Anthony Fico

    Carl & Lisa, Morning Show hosts,
    each with a different style–
    she plays the gems of the school francaise,
    he the compleat anglophile.
