There once was a banshee called Anno,
Who was learning to play the piano.
She was doomed to fail,
And started to wail -
And now she’s a world class soprano.

Maestro's Mistake

The maestro conducting the bands
Could get none to follow commands.
Though skilled and respected,
Sadly, he'd neglected
That morning to put on his pants.

The Mermaids Ball .

The  mermaids  ball  music  still  lingers

Swordfish  Fred  and his shoal  of  sweet singers

Had  a  whale  of  a  time

On  the octopus  slime

Caressed  by  their  salty  fish-fingers

Diasbled Musician

There was a disabled musician
Who stiffly played every audition.
Now recording with care,
Strumming from his armchair,
On youtube he’ll post each composition.

The Trouser Snake

There once was a king cobra called Lance,
Who heard music and went in a trance.
People thought he was asleep,
As his thoughts were so deep.
Then he reared up and lunged for their pants.

Gregorian Chant Rap

Mozart composed the Jazz of his day,
Bach could Rock in the same way,
Music is music,
Melodies mimic,
Young tunes turn classical fogies’ heads gray.

Music Is Alive

A musician resting in a spar,
Was playing his electric guitar,
An almighty spark
Plunged his home into dark,
He was left with a musical scar.

Musical Mojo

I once knew a fiddler named jo jo
He chose to live life as a hobo
He traveled with freight
Through city and state
sustained by that musical mojo

David Bowie

This idol, this man holds a place in my heart

He speaks of Ziggy Star Dust and Major Tom, so I don't know were to start

He played as a king of a goblin land

Watching and listening to him makes me crumble like sand

David Bowie s melodies and performances are genuinely an art.

Rock and roll that's my play
Who wants to stay and sway
Don't care if you're footloose
Any music we'll dance and choose
Smiles; grooving fun that we'll display

Musically Mystery

Vibrant elements of rhythm contrast,
Harmony, Tones,and sounds are Profound,
Instruments there are,
Music not by far

Sittin On a Parkbench Waitin For Jethro Tull Or Jay-Z

I love a good rhythimic beat
I can imitate a drum with the pounding of my feet
Whether it's rock & roll or rap
A stadium amp or a backwards cap
Any type of music makes me get out of my seat

Zebra Star

There once was a zebra from China.
Who liked to sing songs in D minor.
    His voice was the rage
    When they put him on stage.
He rode out of town a headliner!

When Elvis sang he rocked and he rolled 
His fans jumped up and shimmied, I'm told
The folks in Tupelo 
got all shook up below, 
like devils and demons got a hold.

Vinyl Records

Vinyl records are still around
They carry some amazing sound
If you are able, 
get yourself a turntable
The music you hear will astound.

When Sunshine Tricks May

Don't stack your winter clothes away,
rain or cold may return to play;
mad weather brings blues,
happy music soothes 
when sunshine tricks May!

In the Spring

There Once Was

there once was...

there once was a rooster from Nantucket
with vocal stylin's, it only could cluck it
it cocked and it crowed
strutin' loud 'round abode
'til the farmer's wife's axe did awestruck it

In the most appropriate manner
You must have four
To sound out more
And highlight that new fangled scanner

Blonde Ambition

I once had a dream of a girl that sang pop
She was only 16 dressed like a slut, so we called her prosti-tot
She went crazy and spiraled down,
Did a music video with a depressing clown
And as for the singer, Thank God!  her career finally stopped

An Elf From Nantucket

There is an old elf from Nantucket
He carries his harp in a bucket
When I asked him why
He gave this reply,
"It makes it so easy to pluck it!
