I played the tin whistle for him
played the flute
played the violin
played the bassoon
the organ
the saxophone
the trumpet
and the trombone.
He looked my way
And seeing me
Looked away again.
He only answers to the drum…ter tum.



Ho suonato il fischietto per lui
suonato il flauto
suonato il violino
suonato il basso
il sassofono
la tromba
e il trombone.
Lui ha guardato verso di me
e vedendomi
ha guardato di nuovo dall’altra parte.
lui risponde solo al tamburo…ter tum.
