  • I know a fool who blows a horn
    He comes from way down South, oh yeah
    And you ain't seen some blowin' since you been born
    Like when a trombone's to his mouth
    He wails and moans, grunts and groans
    He can moan just like a cow
    And you ain't seen some blowin' since you been born
    Cause he won't show them how

    Chorus:
    Oh Charlie won't you play that thing
    I mean it's my trombone
    Make it talk
    Make it sing
    I mean it's my trombone

    If Gabriel knew how you could blow
    He'd let you lead his band I know
    Oh Charlie won't you play that thing
    I mean it's my trombone

    Chorus

    Now you ain't seen such movin' hips
    Like when the trombone do his licks
    Charlie Green play that thing
    I mean it's my trombone
    Oh yeah, I mean it's my trombone
