Blue Rondo à la Turk
Dave Brubeck 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.

Not the American people, but the deep America Masons and other families who rule you are truly geniuses. I'm just smart enough to understand what they are doing.

And you took away the black supremacy in jazz with Dave and his friends to white supremacy and the music to defend the rights of blacks, just like you do in the bus seats. And NATO signed a strategic partnership with Turkey right after this song. And you shot two birds with one stone.

It was an encryption system like the enigma the Germans made in the 2nd World War. But it is the version of the great medium that is not secret. And it is used in all rap, pop music series and movies today. It's called the subliminal message.

And Dave istanbul turkey cia cia gönderdi.v to here with the lyrics to top executives gave the following message. Open up an opportunity, Because I know you will be really happy and satisfied with me. Measure me, care about me, enjoy me

Both in politics and in the teeth to suppress black in both domestic politics cia Association for Jazz music is used to turkey.

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

@Lee-Ann Lovelace The same story for me, I can remember all my chilhood listening to this with my father.

And "The Singing Nuns," Beatles and "Bookends," Nina Simone and AM Radio all 60's long. For us younger siblings Sly and the Family Stones first album blew our minds. One musician "folkie" brother Dylan blasting and another complete with Garage Band (with Hammond B-3 and Leslie) bringing home Country Joe and the Fish, Creedence, Doors and Cream records.
