I Cut My Flocking Finger With a Knife

Description
A very silly song. The bad one-handed piano-playing was done on purpose (think of the theme of the song, and you will understand why). Just a bit of fun for a Saturday night.

Lyrics
Well I cut my flocking finger with a knife
I cut my flocking finger with a knife
I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Yes I cut my flocking finger with a knife

I used to play piano like a pro
You'd hear me playing everywhere you'd go
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Still I used to play piano like a pro

I used to play viola like a dream
Made all the little groupies sigh and scream
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Yet I used to play viola like a dream

I used to play the cello and the bass
When I played you'd see the joy on every face
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Oh, I used to play the cello and the bass

It ain't easy to be me
I used to be
A flocking orchestra all to myself
But now that's gone
It feels so wrong
All because I had hankering for some tea
And a salad actually, cutting up some carrots I was

I used to play percussion, doubt me not
Rat a tat a tat a tat a dum de dot
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
See, I used to play percussion, doubt me not

I used to play the violin it's true
No one who ever heard me could be blue
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Oh, I used to play the violin it's true

I used to play so many things so well
For such talent to be wasted's surely hell
But I cut my flocking finger and now I am just a singer
Lord, I used to play so many things so well

I hate that
When I cut my flocking finger and then try to play the guitar... I have a
hard time playing the Dang thang anyway... This is really funny!!! Thanks
for making me laugh.

Enjoyed Joanna
Terric sense of humor, glad you didn't get a tumor or maybe even the
mouse action could be curtailed:)

Again thanks for posting that witty lyrics. Your love of book writing
seems to come through. And of course a real bonus with the music and
how it relates to the words. Nice!

Good luck with your books as well !!!!

That's great!
So... you really cut your finger, eh? ...and then wrote this song? That's great. One thing's for sure... I didn't really pay attention to the word "flocking" in the title, so when you first said it I was thinking "what!" and then I scrambled to scroll down to see the lyrics...

Nice use of loops there, by the way... with the little accents of violin and cello and what not... they are put to perfect use in illustrating your lyrics.

Demonstrating for us all?
Showing us students of comedy how it's done, are you?

(And doing a flocking good job at it!)

Hi, I'm Joanna (not Jo, that's someone else). Garageband has allowed me to indulge my love for singing beyond concerts in the shower. My favorite part of songwriting is writing the lyrics. This makes sense, of course, because writing is what I d... [see more]
