The Lyrics

*CODA: the closing section of a musical composition
I'm in the school band and I'm very thirsty
I couldn't wait till lunch so I could go drink my soda
S -o -d -a, soda

I was sitting in my chair like a bump on a log
Something went wrong and she said that I missed the coda
C -o -d -a, coda
Co-co-co-co coda

Well, I play the sax, and I ain't never seen
Something that looks very similar like a repeat
Oh, the coda
co-co-co-co coda

Well, I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
Why you would have something that just confuses the band
Oh, the coda
Co-co-co-co coda co-co-co-co coda

Well, I joined band just the year before
And I've never ever played the coda before
The teacher said, won't you just try
I looked at the coda, and I just asked her "why?'

Well I'm not the kind that would argue with her
so it looks like I'll practice for a long, long time
with the coda
Co-co-co-co coda co-co-co-co coda
Coda
Co-co-co-co coda co-co-co-co coda

So I played all night
Trying to play it right
It put up a fight
I thought I would be dead
Well, I gave up and went to bed

Mom said, son, you gave up but at least you tried
I heard what she had to say, her words be my guide
Oh, the coda
co-co-co-co coda

I know that coda's really got you annoyed
But remember, if you play it, then it'll be overjoyed
Oh, the coda
Co-co-co-co coda

Well, I heard my friends could get it down
And left on my face was a big ugly frown
But I know that I'll be playing all the way
I'll be playing that part every single day

The part was challenging and kinda hard
But now I'm having concerts out in my front yard
With the coda
Co-co-co-co coda co-co-co-co coda

Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda
Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda

Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda
Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda

Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda
Coda co-co-co-co coda, co-co-co-co coda

I can relate, playing the piano, codas can confuse me quite a bit... The only problem with this is it's very much like Weird Al's parody in some parts
