Ok, sure fine. You guys know I got a banjo now. And of course, as any red-blooded male is wont to do, I tuned that baby up and started a'figuring out some tunes on it. Obviously, the first one that any guy would want to know is "Deuling Banjos". That took like 5 minutes...except the fast part. I don't have my finger picks yet.
So, absent finger picks, I just started strumming. And came up with a great tune. I was like...what is this great song? My sons were strumming their guitars along with it and they loved it. And I started making up words to it like:
I wish I had some words to give to this cool song.
It's really great and easy at the same time.
But all of the words I can think of don't do it justice.
And few of them come even close to a rhyme.
As I pick I keep a'wonderin' what this is I'm playing.
But I can't help thinking that I've probably played it before.
Why am I trying to sing all this in a horrible English accent?
Well I think I'll throw my pick down, bring the house down to the floor...
How is it that Kermit the Frog plays a banjo-o?
He lives in a swamp and that's really gonna get it wet.
Besides the fact that he talks funny and he plays a banjo-o.
I think he does it cause he lost an expensive bet.
Then I figured out where the tune I was playing came from.
Not exactly the first thing most people try to learn on the banjo.
