One More Just For You

Make that two more. They were written in the 1500’s by my new favorite composer Orlando Di Lasso. I just added a little flavor to them. Each version has the same instruments, just arranged differently.

The first is titled “A Voi Guglielmo Invitto.” According to the online translator, that means “To You William Unconquered.”

And the second one is titled “O la o che bon eccho.” That translates to “The Echo Song” on translate.com. (Another translator uses the word “ecstasy” but I am going with echo because this site is G-rated.)

The Echo Song Lyrics (sing along, everyone!):

My word!
what a lovely echo!
let’s try it out.
Pleased to meet you!
Ha ha ha ha ha,
let’s all laugh!
Oh my fine companion?
What do you want?
I’d like you to sing
a
song
Why?
Why should I?
Why not?
Because I don’t want to.
Why don’t you want to?
Because I don’t feel like it!
Shut up I say!
You shut up,
you big fool!
Yes Sir!
Come now, no more!
Let’s go!
Goodbye good echo!
Goodbye good echo!
Peace be with you.
That’s enough,
enough,
enough!

  1. Very nice, John! Thanks for introducing me to your new favorite composer. I had never heard of this guy before. You do a good job researching his history. We are still walking with our 13-year-old golden retriever, Sadie, although we are all slowing down a bit. But that’s to be expected, isn’t it? Love,Emily

    1. Emily I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than walking with a four legged companion. If you can’t find one, two 2-legged companions will work.

      Thanks for listening to the music on johnsthewritestuff.com. I love making music.
