Shostakovich was a Russian

Shostakovich was a Russian,

a piano player, too;

he played his piano loudly

from Timbukone to Timbuktu.


He wrote a lot of tunes,

played a lot of notes,

using all the black and white keys,

whilst thinking up rude quotes.


He still gets played at concerts,

his music lingers on;

his symphonies are quite the best,

for this fool to dwell upon.


Shostakovich was a pianist,

and a Russian by the way,

he wrote a lot of tunes

but he never wrote a play.
