Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

If you don't have a certain knowledge of instrumental nomenclature, you may not get this.
Smack those lips
Wipe out the spit drips.
Check it for cracks.
Make sure it's intact.

When you're playing a high song,
You must lip it.
For the band to play along,
You must lip it.
So the pitch you hit ain't wrong,
You must lip it.

Now lip it
Into shape.
Take it up,
That's great.
Lean forward,
Tilt your head
Try to inflect it.
The shaft is straight,
So lip high wood.

When high wood starts goin' down,
You must lip it,
Or the orchestra will frown
Unless you lip it.
To hit that high A
And trill, you lip it.

High A, lip it,
Lip it good.
High A, lip it,
Lip high wood.

[Repeat first three verses]
