Flutes are doubled by the violins.
Organ tones are held by brass and basses.
Racing madly, the inner strings and winds
Try with all their might to keep their places.
Yet the brass blare hides a multitude of sins.

The conductor waves his arms while making faces,
Wincing as one errant oboe wins,
Out of step as the next mad dash begins.
