Subject: RE: I am a Fine Musician - German song?
Other verses commonly sung in the Enlish version include I can play ...

the Archers, (rum-ti-tum the Archers theme tune)

the Dambusters (make goggles of fingers and daa-daa the Dambusters tune)

the Cross Channel Ferry, P &, P &, P & O, P & O, P & O, P &, P &, P & O, P &, P & O.

Jerusalem (sing the whole of Jerusalem).

I have also heard a slightly different version using Schubert's (or is it Schumann's?) Grande Marche Militaire as the tune:

Long time ago in a small town in Germany
There lived a shoemaker, Schumann was his name
He could play the piano, piano, piano,
He could play the piano, pia, piano.
etc, etc
