TEXT: If music be the food of love, sing on, sing on, sing on, sing on til I am filled am filled with joy! For then my listening soul you move, for then my listening soul move to pleasures that can never cloy. And all my senses feasted are, and all my senses feasted are, though yet the treat is only sound. Sure I must perish by your charms unless you save me in your arms!
