The Lyrics

You are playin' the xylophone
And I get really bugged by it
Somehow you just like it, but you must
Really forget about it

Listen, our ears are all chilled to the bone
From an instrument that's best left alone
You see you don't have to go play your xylophone

Tell me why did you have to move there-
Right across the street
Tell me why you wanna play there
Please just move a million feet

You will, never ever hear your own phone
Because, you never stop playing it in your home
You see you don't have to go play your xylophone
Oh no now, you don't have to go play your xylophone

Oh no, you aren't the first
I'm sure some other xylophonists are worse
Maybe it's real cool to you
It's one of those things us neighbors wish were untrue

Tell me why did you have to move there-
Right across the street
Who knows, maybe you're drunk all day
Maybe you're just learning, playing with your feet

Oh yeah, we just don't like hearing your tones
Oh no, when you're singing, you just aren't in the zone
You see you don't have to go play your xylophone
No, you don't have to go play your xylophone
Oh no, you don't have to go play your xylophone
