It's me against the piano, why do I have to practice? I'd rather play the radio, I'd rather sit on cactus! It's me versus the piano, I hope it doesn't trouble you I'd rather go play baseball, I'd rather play with D.W..
Chorus: Practicing is just the same thing over and over and over and over
Practicing is just the same thing over and over and over and over
(to the tune of "Chopsticks")
Chopsticks, they call this tune I'd rather use a spoon. I'd like to boil it in grease, this piece!
(to the tune of "The Happy Farmer")
The Happy Farmer is happy 'cause he knows;
He's growing beets and greens and squash and not some pianos!
(to the tune of "Do-Re-Mi" from "The Sound of Music")
Do is dough - It's uncooked bread.
Re like in raygun - that turns you to a nerd.
Mi as in mean, and meaningless too.
Fa, what is fa? It isn't even a word!
So, as in, "So what?"
La, like in "Blah!", it's a big fat yawn!
Ti, is like tea, which is old boiled leaves!
And Do, more doe!
It goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and ON!
I don't like the piano. I'm sorry Mr. Bach! I should be reading music, not just staring at the clock.
