  • Lyrics: Now Mozart’s at the window (Let him in, let him in, let him in!) Now Mozart’s in the closet (Let him out, let him out, let him out!) He’s Here! (Oh yes, he’s in your hair) He’s There! (Oh he is everywhere) Now Mozart’s on the rooftop (Let him in, let him in, let him in!) He’s coming down the chimney Now he’s tracking dirt around the house He makes a whinny like a horse And then he’s quiet as a mouse He’s hiding underneath the sofa over there Where’d he go? He seems to disappear into thin air Here he is, I found him swinging from the chandelier Drinking papa’s beer In his underweer In his underwear In his underweer or wear, he’s always running here or there it’s true So true Oh, what will his poor mama say When she finds he’s broken all the china She got in France, which was hand-painted with a strange medieval dance of tall men prancing in short pants The prize begonias in the yard, were hit hard they never had a chance they’re Trampled underneath the garden window The roses too, spray painted blue, by you-know-who He never never ever seems to give a worry or a care He’s always spinning like a top, there’s always trouble in the air There’ll never be a moment’s peace as long as little Mozart’s there He is trouble everywhere, he is trouble everywhere I swear Now Mozart’s very quiet, it’s fishy. Suspicious. Where is he now? He’s skating on the sidewalk He’s running in the hallway He’s talking in the movies He’s eating on the subway He’s feeding all the meters He’s mocking our great leaders He’s hopped upon a jet plane But now he’s stuck at John Wayne He can’t be stuck at John Wayne The air is stale at John Wayne He’s growing pale at John Wayne And now he’s at the Airport Hotel He’s re-arranged the flowers He’s splashing in the fountain He’s calling for room service The concierge is nervous Now Mozart’s blowing smoke from a cigar There’s chaos in the lobby Bad Boy Mozart’s on the bar Playing loud guitar Now Mozart’s in his bedroom (Let me out, let me out let me out!) He’s grounded for the weekend (Let me out, let me out let me out!) Unfair! (Oh how he pounds the door) Unfair! (Oh how he stomps the floor) His mother’s wearing headphones (Shut him out shut him out shut him out!) Now Mozart’s sliding down the drainpipe by the window of his room He lands as lightly as a cat and looks around him in the gloom He’s got a backpack full of toilet paper with a faint perfume (The rolls are flying high above the moon and up into the sky) The trees will bloom (Now each and every branch is dripping white his mom will surely cry) Outside his room The little booger’s howling at the moon His mother can do naught but fret and fume She’s written to his father in Khartoum When dad comes home his son will meet his doom – Ka-boom!
