Diarmuid Quinn - Merano / What A Scene! What A Joy! lyrics

[Citizens of Merano]
Oh, light the heart
That lingers in Merano
Merano! The spa no
Connoisseur of spas
Would miss. (So healthy!)
Highly recommended
Is this sweet metropolis (Mental and physical bliss!)

The gods have smiled
And blessed is Merano
Merano! There are no
Fitter burghers to be found. Such vigor!
Take the time to taste us--
We'll give you a welcome
That's typically Tyrol
For then we are sure of our ground
Right now we're Italian
We used to be German
The border keeps shifting around

[Mayor of Merano]
Speaking as one of the patriarchs
I don't mind taking your lira or marks

[Citizens of Merano]
Oh I get high when
I saunter by
The mountains of Merano
Rosy-cheeked Merano
Flourishing to a fault
The sparkling streams
The bracing air
The therapeutic salt
I'd have to be carried away
To call a halt!

Oh, I feel great
In this bouncing state
All hail to thee, Merano
Hearty hale Merano--

[Women, spoken]
Any objections?

[Men, spoken]
Nein!

[Citizens of Merano]
Where breathing in
Will turn you on
Where water tastes like wine
Get up your get up and go
And get in line!
It's living your life in a show
By Roger and Hammerstein

Oh, sad the soul
Who passes by Merano
Merano! So far no
Soul has ever passed us by
(They love us!)
Why not stay forever?
Oh so many reasons why (All those in favor say "Aye”)
Aye!

So sing a song
Let's hear it for Merano
Merano!

[Sopranos]
Soprano

[Altos]
Alto

[Tenors]
Tenor

[Basses]
Bass

[Citizens of Merano]
Agree! (We're wholesome.)
What a happy haven!

This is a place
Where your arteries soften--
Cholesterol hasn't a chance
From mountain to valley
The natural goodness
Is fighting pollution's advance

[Mayor of Merano]
So come to us and feel the force
All major credit cards taken of course

[Citizens of Merano]
Oh, I get high when
I saunter by
The mountains of Merano
Rosy-cheeked Merano
Flourishing to a fault
The sparkling streams
The bracing air
The therapeutic salt
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/diarmuid-quinn/-/merano-what-a-scene-what-a-joy.html]
I'd have to be carried away
To call a halt!

Once in a while
All the gods will smile
On little old Merano
Humble, shy Merano
Suddenly hits the press
And I report with all the pride
And joy that I possess:
Half of the world and his wife
Has our address!
Our little town will be rife
With games of chess!

[Whistling]

[Citizens of Merano]
Get up your get up and go
And get in line!
It's living your life in a show
By Rogers and Hammerstein!

[Freddie]
What a scene
What a joy
What a lovely sight
When my game is
The big sensation!
Has the mob's sporting taste
Altered overnight?
Have they found
New sophistication?

[Florence]
Not yet!
They just want to see
If the nice guy
Beats the bum
If it's East-West
And the money's sky high--

[Florence & Freddie]
They all come

[Freddie]
You can raise all you want
If you raise the roof
Scream and shout
And the gate increases
Break the rules
Break the bank
I'm the living proof
They don't care
How I move my pieces

Well, I know I'm the best there is
But all they want is a show
Well, that's all right
I'll be glad to oblige--

[Florence & Freddie]
SRO
SRO!

[Citizens of Merano]
Oh, I get high when
I saunter by
The mountains of Merano
Rosy-cheeked Merano
Flourishing to a fault
The sparkling streams
The bracing air
The therapeutic salt
I'd have to be carried away
To call a halt!

Oh, I feel great
In this bouncing state
All hail to thee, Merano
Hearty hale Merano--

[Women, spoken]
Any objections?

[Men, spoken]
Nein!

[Citizens of Merano]
Where breathing in
Will turn you on
Where water tastes like wine
Get up your get up and go
And get in line!
It's living your life in a show
By Roger and Hammerstein!

Now for the sell:
We put the ice into paradise
We are the salt of the Earth
Sound as a bell
Check out the waters
And check out the hygiene
At which we excel
Check into a hotel
And schnell
Body and soul get well!
