Manhattan Transfer TUBBY THE TUBA Lyrics
Last updated: 05/10/2001 03:22:47 AM
Tubby wants to play the violins' tune, but it's too light and flimsy for a big tuba. He ends up squashing the little tune, and the conductor sends him away. Tubby wanders forlornly to the edge of a pond where he meets a Bullfrog. The Bullfrog teaches him a new song that becomes Tubby's very own melody.
Tubby (Tim Hauser)
Alone am I, me and I together.
If I went away from me,
How unhappy I would be,
Me and I, oh my.
Bullfrog (Alan Paul)
I said. "lovely evening!"
Clunk! Clunk! Clunk!
I said, "Bee-oo-tiful evening!"
