There was a dholak who played a Damaroo
Oh sorry, I’ll tell it again to you
It was the damaroo who played the dholak
Oh no, my words I have to suck
But now dear me
there is no other way I can see
So I’ll tell the whole story!
The dholak played the damaroo
But it happened the other way too!
The damaroo played the dholak
Singing “Happy Birthday Tooo Yoooo!”
But now you see
The instruments were free
They were in music land
And could pick their own choice for a band!
And they were happy
because they were free from any human
and this was the key
to have fun!
But now they couldn't decide
In who to confide
On play and who should sing
and that’s why they could not make any other noise than a noisy ting ting ting!
But then they got it
what to do
It's so very simple
To hear the idea, they stood in a queue
You all play yourselves
with your legs and hands
then our band can form
and make many bands!
But I still don’t know if the dholak played the damaroo or the other way round
So I’d better run away because this is making my head pound!
