Default An anthem for Drummerworld

Sung to the tune of All Things Bright and Beautiful, more or less.
WARNING : Contains STRONG vowel movements.

All things tight and tuneable CHORUS
All kits both big and small,
All things you can think of -
Dear God we've discussed them all !

Which kit should I be buying ? VERSE
Which cymbOls are the best ?
Let's have some fun with badges,
'Coz Sticks is such a pest.
Which heads go best with which drum ?
And how should they be tuned ?
The most influential drummer,
Peart , Ringo or Moon ?

CHORUS

Let's go and look at Craigslist
Or How do I improve ?
"Have you tried thread searching ?
Oh man you're such a newb !"
Which drummers are you're favourite ?
What music means to you....
"We've answered that a thousand times,
So you can F. A. Q. ! "

CHORUS

So, chops or groove and pocket ?
There's so much to explain.
If you could see what it does to us,
You'd understand our pain.
And then there's 5,6,7,8,-
A bleeding heart or worse;
If it wasn't non-stop punning,
He's drowning you with verse !

FINAL CHORUS [ All together now ! ]
[ Ducks and runs for cover......band ]

Haha. Well done!

Is Kenny G a jazz man?
Or did jazz die or shrink?
Learn drums with Rockstar or Pac Man?
Should giggers ever drink?
Will my double pedal
Improve if put on tapes?
Are drummers real musicians
Or just Neanderthals in capes?

CHORUS

Thank you.
I have always, [ not true ] , spoken up when I thought something was wrong.
I have never, [not true], allowed insinuated remarks pass me bye.

This is something I offer.
It was meant with love and irony.

And if you don't like it............
F.A.Q !

And if you did, thanks .

Goodnight and ...................
See you later.

[ Did that have drama ? ]

Actualy, I need to prepare for our bands first gigs, so ; time out.......

This is cool. If I knew how to do something other than play drums, I'd put a backdrop to it.

Ah, man, that got me to LOL. Great job with the lyrics. Weird Al would be proud, I'm sure.
