Lyrics:

If I learned to play the violin
And I traded my old guitar in
Would your parents still object
Or would I win their respect
If I learned to play the violin

I would even go and cut my hair
Though my friends would point and say I'm square
Girl, would your society
Still look down their nose at me
If I learned to play the violin

Refrain:
I'd give up my beat ways
Take up more discreet ways
All you've gotta do is ask me to
Woah, just ask me to

And I'd learn to play the violin
Turn my back on everyhting I've been
I'd be like somebody new
But not change my love for you
If I learned to play the violin

(Refrain)

And I'd learn to play the violin
Yes, I'd learn to play the violin
And I'd learn to play the violin
The violin
