Yes, I played in the band.
And band geek was my brand.
A solo was my shinning moment,
because I could not sing a single note yet.
Yankee doodle our trio trilled,
and the crowd was pleased and smiled and thrilled.
Scales, cords and rhythms practiced.
Then I had to learn them all again backwards.
Amongst my group of music spastics,
I thought my world was just fantastic.
I played the oboe, the flute and the tenor sax,
it’s no wonder it took me so long to have sex.
I marched in the band with my big drum,
So much excitement I forgot my hat, how dumb.
Music still give me chills and exhilaration,
I miss those days of musical exaltation.
Yes, I played in the band,
and “band geek” is still my brand!
