With Kathryn Grayson and children
From the CD Frank Sinatra In Hollywood (1940-1964) Disc 2, track 16

Kathryn Grayson sings with the children in counterpoint:
Johann Sebastian Bach in sixteen eighty five
Wrote the kind of music that catches a lot of your mind ooooo ooooo ooooo
Catches a lot of your mind, you can tell it’s fancy
‘Cause of the counterpoint he always employs
At every single silly chance oooooo oooooo, ooooo
To his everlasting fame, Johann Sebastian Bach his name ooooo, ooooo ooooo.
He’s inside you so to show you so you’ll know the true sum of his brilliance ooooo
But I am not, and you are not impressed ooooo, ooooo, ooooo,
Johann Sebastian Bach ooooo ooooo ooooo
Frank Sinatra has the final line:
John Sebastian, John Sebastian Bach was his name!
