lyrics

______________________

MUSIC in the BLOOD

When Johny was a boy -- Young, Johny
he heard a tuba play -- Hey, Johny
he marveled then he realized
he’d been born to blow that big horn

So he began to blow -- Go Johny
he blew all night and day -- Hey, Johny
he practiced and he improvised
a panoply of low melodies


He played fast fandangos, jazz and tangos
Ska and cabaret
Hot calypsos, obscure disco
Ragtime and reggae

Bebop, doo-wop, hip-hop and pop
Klez and boogaloo
Johny blew right to the top
to the peak of tuba cool -- Go, Johny


When Johny plays a show -- Go, Johny
fans can’t stay away -- Hey, Johny
he dazzles and surprises with
his panoply of low melodies


He played fast fandangos, jazz and tangos
Ska and cabaret
Hot calypsos, obscure disco
Ragtime and reggae

Bebop, doo-wop, hip-hop and pop
Klez and boogaloo
Hey now Johny, don’t you stop
Play us another tune -- Go, Johny
