The Lyrics

Imagine, if you will, a young child, a music enthusiast who deeply yearns to learn to play...and gets his wish, in a way.
Play the guitar
What I wanted to do
Parent's veto came through
They gave me a cello
This thing's too large
It's like a barge, it's true
The ground has gained a groove
From dragging my cello
Boy, do my shoulders hurt
Cause of this thing I lug
I hate this damn cello

Music, oh yeah, music is so
The thing I feel is beautiful
You know I don't want this, 'fraid so
Don't blow it but it blows

There ain't a lot
Of decent songs, it's true
That I can play for you
Upon this dumb cello
Because it's like
The bass of viols, dude
But not nearly as cool
Can't jam on a cello

You'd think I'd ask for better notes
Good trick, 'fraid it's not that simple
I'm low on oxygen by the time
I drag this thing to school, bites

I fume
No solos for me, dude
I'd rather play bassoon
But for now, I'm stuck
Cause I hate to be rude
Ask parents for a new
Instrument type

Still practice hard
Until the time I move
I'll sell this dumb thing for food

Mildly inspired by this classic comedy bit. For a parody inspired by the rest of it, please see this one I did six years ago.

As a cellist, I approve of this. Although, in spite of the stance stated in your lyrics, cellos are the best jamming instrument around. Look up Apocalyptica, 2Cellos, Helen Money, or Sarah Cellobat Chaffee on YouTube for ample proof. :)
