My Golden Kazoo
When I was growing up I was always alone
Cause everyone in my family played instruments of their own
And all I could do was just sit in the corner and hum
My Dad played guitar, my Mom hit the keys
My Brother on the drums, Sis's cello between her knees
And all I could do was just sit there, feeling dumb.
So I went downtown to see Old Joe
He says "I know your problem, I got something for you"
And then he pulled out an old gold kazoo
And said "You don't use your fingers cause it ain't got no holes"
"You don't use your arms cause you don't draw no bow"
"All you gotta do is pucker up your lips and blow."

Now I play my kazoo all day long, I can play with anyone, I can do any song
G A B7
I play my kazoo with any tune,And now I'm gonna play my kazoo for you…
Now when the families all gathered 'round
And my Dad's guitar's playing that country sound
And Mom's taking the piano to places it ain't never been
And my Brother's on the drums just a-keepin' the beat
And my Sister's cello's sounding lonesome and sweet
I can pick up my old kazoo and join right in
And never again will I have to feel dumb
While I got my gold kazoo and I know how to hum
And with this instrument I plan to stay
And maybe record a record album someday
Cause you don't use your fingers cause it ain't got no holes
And you don't use your arms cause you don't draw no bow
All you gotta do is pucker up your lips and blow.
