Blue Rondo a La Turk
The Dave Brubeck Quartet Lyrics


Blue Rondo A La Turk (Round, Round, Round)

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a harmony
Round, round, round a melody,
Harmony, melody-steadily

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a memory
Round, round, round a melody,
Memory, melody, merrily.

There's a melody I used to play
Counterpoint every yesterday.
Swiftly up and down I hasten and
Chasten my fingers and heart to play.

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a memory
Round, round, round a melody
Memory, harmony-steadily

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a mystery
Round, round, round a melody,
Mystery, mirror of history.

Taking over all my reveries
Hearing passions in the melodies
Play it up and down so wearily
Stumbling, fumbling, tumbling.

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a harmony
Round, round, round a melody
Harmony, melody, memory

Round, round town I follow you.
Round, round town I'm calling you.
Round, round town I hasten to do
All the chasing you want me to.

Open up an opportunity,
For I know that you will be
Truly happy and content with me.
Measure me, treasure me, pleasure me.

Open up an opportunity.
Open up an offer. You will be
Truly happy and content with me.
Measure me, treasure me, pleasure me.

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a you and me.
Round, round, round a melody
You and me, melody and harmony.

Round, round, round a melody
Round, round, round a harmony
Round, round, round a melody,
Harmony, mystery-you and me.

Don't you see
That we were meant to be,
One and the same.
Melody, married to harmony,
One and the same.
Change the score
We will be ever more
One and the same.
Melody, married to harmony
One and the same.

Here it comes, our symphony,
Measure by measure.
A melody and harmony,
You and me in harmony.
You and me so happy
Were making it
Shaking the blues ain't bothering me.

Here it comes, our symphony,
Measure by measure,
A pleasure.
A melody and harmony,
You and me in harmony
You and me so happy
We found a new rondo,
To end the blue rondo today.

I was seventeen when this was released. It was fresh and new. I was pretty fresh and new then, myself. Now I'm old and slow, but I still get a charge from this album and especially Blue Rondo à la Turk. This stuff, unlike people, just never gets old.

Noah Martindale

Im actually pretty young id say for listening to this. Im 16 and I have a large interest in the more classic jazz pieces and groups and I love it all so much and I agree it is timeless

patrick cordoliani

@Sojouner Our minds, spirits, souls are there to keep learning. Yeah, bodies age and break down, but minds, spirits, souls can keep learning. I don't know what you are learning with repeated listenings to Blue Rondo a la Turk, or Brandenburg No. 2, or Ives Holiday Symphony, or Coltrane's My Favorite Things, I just know that we are. So keep listening.

Larry, my dad bought me this album for my high school graduation in 1961. It is as exciting now as it was then

My parents played the crap out of this when I was a little kid. Even now, decades later, I can hum practically every riff, every part! True jazz

@Christopher Burke Schoenberg or Scriabin might be more difficult to hum along to🤣
