The Lyrics

i tore my baby grand apart late last night...ah-hah hah
right down the stairs, it fell...a couple of flights...ah-hah hah
it sure got butchered, from a spill from that height...ah-hah hah
it went right da-da-down...its goodbye, piano

i could have used some help, but i was a fool...ah-hah hah
too hard, i pushed on it...i broke all the rules...ah-hah hah
it headed south...the laws of psychics are cruel...ah-hah hah
it went right da-da-down...its goodbye, piano

smashed it up
smashed it up
smashed it up

would have behooved me to have taken the time...ah-hah hah
to use the phone to call some partners of mine...ah-hah hah
a little teamwork and it would have gone fine...ah-hah hah
it went right da-da-down...its goodbye, piano

smashed it up
smashed it up
smashed it up
smashed it up

i lost my baby grand...we parted last night...ah-hah hah
it went a-tumbling...a horrible sight...ah-hah hah
as it was lurching...parts just flew left and right...ah-hah hah
it went right da-da-down...its goodbye, piano

Unfamiliar with the OS and douldn't quickly find a .midi, but a huge grin from the story as told. Reminded me of Laurel & Hardy trying to deliver a piano to an upstairs destination in "The Music Box." :-)
