Spare a thought for the dreamer,
Open up the Hall of Fame,
Hold your breath and remember
Mr. Theremin's name

Like an old magician,
Sounds of wonder he made
And the ghosts of the great musicians
Smiled down when he played

Wherever he took his show,
People stopped and stared (everywhere)
He waved his hands,
And strange music filled the air

Hey, Mr. Theremin,
Won't you play a song for me?
I've been waiting for a lifetime
To be in your company
Please, Mr. Theremin,
We will love you whatever
Though the curtains are falling,
The cheers go on forever, forever

Now the last of the dreamers
Lie sleeping underground
Though their dreams are all forgotten and their voice has no sound
Their songs are all around

Mr. Theremin knows,
As he stands down the lonely road
To him it's not a game, and he never even noticed
The glory and the fame

Sounds of joy and laughter fill the air
(Everywhere)
Let music rest in the hands of those who care
(Hands of those who care)

Hey, Mr. Theremin,
Won't you play a song for me?
I've been waiting for a lifetime
To be in your company
Please, Mr. Theremin,
Will this be the final show?
Though the curtains are falling,
We don't want to see you go, oh no

Hey, Mr. Theremin,
We will love you whatever
Though the curtains are falling,
The cheers go on forever, forever

(Ooh) Mr. Theremin (play a song for me)
(Ooh) I've been waiting to be in your company
Please, Mr. Theremin,
We will love you whatever
Though the curtains are falling,
The cheers go on forever
