The Lyrics

My latest toy is a harmonica holder, but I don't play the harmonica.. instead, I make (& sell at very reasonable prices) kazoos, accredited by the Flint Cottage Kazoo Orchestra (of which I'm one of the founder members).. whence the FCKO reference. But you do rather have to picture me singing this one with a guitar & kazoo in front of a microphone...
Looking just a little bizarre
Like a harmonicar
But it's wooden
Branded with an FCKO
And that's how you know
It's a good'un

Looking out, I'm sensing your dismay
When you hear it you may shout "foul play"
When I go "doo doo doo"
On kazoo

Sometimes it can feel a bit weird
It gets stuck in my beard
And I know it's
Like the actress said to the bish
-op, though you may wish
I can't blow it

A mouth-organ? No, it's not, no way
C'est quelque chose que je dois souffler
(I think that's French for "blew")
On kazoo

[Kazoo solo.. well, duet if there's anyone else around with one]

One thing that I really dislike
It keeps banging the mike
Had enough now
Maybe if you've had enough, too
What I ought to do:
Is piss off now

Hope you liked all that I had to play
And I'll move over for the cabaret
You've heard all I can do:
On kazoo

And to think my parents wasted all that money on euphonium lessons for me! Let's jam together sometime. ;D

Sorry, Phil, I thought this would be the classic "Only You" by the Platters. DK this one at all, although "harmonicar" was a nice neologism.

Speaking of which, how's that count going? ... and *please* see reply to your comment at the Major-Neoloparody of Thursday. :-D

AFW - some point I'll get round to posting a video of this or maybe the "Duelling banjos" cover :-)

OMR - Euphonium & kazoo? Sounds like a marriage made in, well, the hippopotamus room at London Zoo

TT - don't know the Platters version, I'm afraid; and as I mentioned over on your neologous parody, I'm not *actually* doing a count.

PS Security code "F8K"? Well, f8k me..
