The Lyrics

Saxman

3/4, 4/4?

I'm trying to expel a B.
It is very sharp, unlike me.
I'm not a saxman,
No, not a saxman.

My five digits clumsily crawl
Across the keys and botch them all.
I'm not a saxman,
No, not a saxman

If I try one bar, I'll miss the beat.
Charitably, it sounds like sheep bleat.
I might as well play it with my feet.
Just forget a Prokofiev suite!
Saxman
I'm not a saxman
No, not a saxman

[Horribly discordant, squeaky sax solo]

Is this 6/8, 2/2, 4/4?
(Saxman, hear me trillin')
No notes, just spit runs down the bore
(Mouthpiece hurts my teeth)
I'm not a sax man
No, not a sax man

I should have heeded this advice:
It's worse than sharp sticks in the eyes.

I'm not a sax man
No, not a sax man
Why won't this f*cking thing work for me?

Saxman.

This brings back some painful memories involving a clarinet. Good job, John!

I tried to play a flute once, but couldn't get anything to come out. Hey! Does that sound kinda weird...? :-D Well done!

That's hilarious, Merry! How about Bill Clinton telling his mom when he was a kid, " I looked at a Playboy magazine once, but I didn't open my eyes. "
