"I Am A Young Musician"


       
 
1.
I am a young musician, from London I have come,
And I can play sweet music upon my little drum.
Trr-um-pum pum, trr-um-pum pum,
Trr-um-pum pum, trr-um-pum pum.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Trr-um-pum pum, trr-um-pum pum,
Trr-um-pum pum pum pum!
 
       
 
2.
I am a young musician, I come from old Berlin,
And I can play sweet music upon my violin,
Fiddle-dee-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee-dee,
Fiddle-dee-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee-dee.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Fiddle-dee-dee-dee, fiddle-dee-dee-dee,
Fiddle-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.
 
       
  3. I am a young musician, in Paris I was born,
And I can play sweet music upon my big French horn,
Baw-baw-baw-baw-baw, baw-baw-baw-baw-baw,
Baw-baw-baw-baw-baw, baw-baw-baw-baw-baw.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Baw-baw-baw-baw-baw, baw-baw-baw-baw-baw,
Baw-baw-baw-baw-baw-baw-baw!
 
       
  4. I am a young musician, the best you've ever met,
And I can play sweet music upon my clarinet,
Doodle-doo-doo-doo, doodle-doo-doo-doo,
Doodle-doo-doo-doo, doodle-doo-doo-doo.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Doodle-doo-doo-doo, doodle-doo-doo-doo,
Doodle-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo!
 
       
  5. I am a young musician, I've traveled very far,
And I can play sweet music upon my fine guitar,
Plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk, plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk,
Plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk, plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk, plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk,
Plunky-plunk-plunk-plunk-plunk-plunk!
 
       
  6. I am a young musician, just listen to me toot,
And I can play sweet music upon my silver flute,
Tooty-toot-toot-toot, tooty-toot-toot-toot,
Tooty-toot-toot-toot, tooty-toot-toot-too.
Skipping and playing, singing and swaying,
Tooty-toot-toot-toot, tooty-toot-toot-toot, Tooty-toot-toot-toot-toot-toot!
