The Post

There’s a post horn sounding down the street
So why on earth did you miss a beat,
My heart, my heart?
So why on earth did you miss a beat,
My heart, my heart?
You know, there’ll be no post for you
Stop pounding, like you always do
My heart, my heart
There won’t be any post for you
My heart, my heart
Stop pounding, like you always do
My heart, my heart
You’re right it comes from ‘you-know-where’
And yes I have a sweetheart there
My heart
I used to have a sweetheart there
My heart
My heart
Perhaps
You’d like to hitch a ride
To go and see the blushing bride
My heart, my heart?
I know you’d like to hitch a ride
My heart, my heart
And go and see the blushing bride
My heart, my heart?

Composer

Franz Peter Schubert was an late Classical and early Romantic composer. He produced a vast oeuvre during his short life, composing more the 600 vocal works (largely Lieder), and well as several symphonies, operas, and a large body of piano music. He was uncommonly gifted from a young age, but appreciation of his music was limited during his lifetime. His work became more popular in the decades after his death, and was praised by 19th century composers, including Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Liszt.
