The Lyrics

I never liked the reeds before
They always made me run and hide
Those wind quintets were such a bore
I've got a reason to like it
Since I heard you, my ears opened wide

It's Mozart, it's Shubert
But I don't swear no more
I like that mellow bassoon
On a concert played at noon
I love that mellow bassoon

I never liked that sound before
It's a music that I can't explain
That classical has opened doors
And my brain is peeling in two
It's now that rock and roll crap causing pain

It's Mahler, Stravinsky
And all I want is more
All from a mellow bassoon
And some brews from the saloon
And from a mellow bassoon

I love it, yes I do
And I wish you loved it too
Half notes falling on the beat
Oboes there, all sound so sweet
I know the sound of horns and the flutin'
The old clarinets will be a-tootin'

It's Bartok, it's Bizet
And all I want is more
All from a mellow bassoon
And some powder from a spoon
And from a mellow bassoon
