Beethoven

Ode to Beethoven

Joyful, joyful sounds the music by Beethoven, but we know

He could not hear what he’d written and this made him angry, so

Sometimes he would yell at his friends

And they did not always understand

Why he had such a bad temper

Though he was a gifted man

Joyful, joyful sounds the music by Beethoven, it’s so fine.

Although people called him “strange,” they thought his music was divine.

Then he wrote the Ninth Symphony;

It was different than works in the past.

When he wrote it, no one knew this symphony would be his last.

Joyful, joyful, sounds the music by Ludwig van Beethoven
