Thread Name: Lyr Req: I am a Fine Musician - German song?
Subject: I am a Fine Musician - German song?
Since I was in high school, I've known a song that goes like this:
I am a fine musician, I practice every day I heard a rendition of this song in German within the last month or so - I suspect it was at an open sing in DC - does anybody have the German lyrics, or any other versions of this song?
And people come from miles around, just to hear me play
My piccolo, my piccolo, they love to hear my piccolo
Tweedle-deedle-deedle, dee, dee, dee.
and then a trombone, bass drum, trumpet, and what have you - always running down the list of sounds at the end of every verse, singing one on top of another as a true band should do.
I heard a 20-yr-old camp counselor sing something similar last week, but I didn't catch the whole thing:
I am a Musikaner, I come from German-land.... And that's all I recall. Can anybody come up with the German, or with any more English versions?
