Manhattan Transfer TUBBY THE TUBA Lyrics

Last updated:

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)
Bug-Gup! Bug-Gup!
Lovely evening!
Bug-Gup! Bug-Gup!
I said. "lovely evening!"
Clunk! Clunk! Clunk!
I said, "Bee-oo-tiful evening!"
Hello! Bug-Gup!
Hello! Bug-Gup!
Hello!
