Lyrics


Arthur Vs the Piano liner notes.jpg

(Begins with the tune of "Clair de Lune")

It's me against the piano.

Why do I have to practice?

I'd rather play the radio.

I'd rather sit on cactus!


It's me versus the piano.

I hope it doesn't trouble you

I'd rather go play baseball.

I'd rather play with D.W.!


Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over.

Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over.

Grrr!


(To the tune of "Chopsticks")

Chopsticks they call this tune,

I'd rather use a spoon.

I'd like to boil it in grease

This piece!


Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over.

Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over. Grrr!


(To the tune of "The Happy Farmer")

The happy farmer

Is happy 'cause he knows

He's growing beets and greens and squash

And not some pianos.


(To the tune of "Do-Re-Mi" from "The Sound of Music")

Do is dough, it's uncooked bread.

Re like in raygun that turns you to a nerd.

Mi as in mean and meaningless too.

Fa, what is fa? It isn't even a word!


So — as in, so what?

La, like in blah, it's a big fat yawn!

Ti is like tea, which is old boiled leaves.

And do! More do! It just goes on and on and on

and on....!


I don't like the piano.

I'm sorry Mr. Bach.

I should be reading music

Not just staring at the clock.


Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over.

Practicing is just the same thing,

Over and over and over and over.
