Haydn's Wife (Settling Old Scores)

The Mermaid's Song

Animated Score

What do we know about Haydn's wife?
That she'd use his scores for curlers,
Or to line her baking tray.

They told us at his birthplace-
Now it's all over the net.

Did she tear out sheets to curl her hair,
Or to show she knew he didn't care?

(Rohrau, Austria)
