    I spent 5 minutes with this and, by eyeballing it, I came up with this:

    c”16 b’16 f’16 f”16 b”16 f”16

    Now my musical skills are nigh-nonexistent so this is likely to be completely and totally off but it said that the tune might be Brahms, Johannes: violin concerto in D op. 77, 2nd movement.

    So the guy made up some lyrics to a famous-ish tune. Maybe.Report
