The Lyrics

Blow and soft sounds vent..
You can call it by it's slang name
..Sweet Potato
If you don't play well, though
..They may throw tomato..
Four to twelve tiny holes
Small, looks like a fish,
Take here or there, wherever you wish
In World War II, issued GI's
To boost their morale and make happy guys

What a nifty little thing to play
Named for food we eat,
"Potato, Sweet"
You don't hear or see 'em much, today

Made of glass, ceramic, sometimes wood
Sorta' like a flute,
Makes a high pitched toot
One that's classical if you are good

In Italy, had it's first use
The word Ocarina means "Goose"
It blows so free.
Tweet tweet, tweedle-dee..
Sweet birdlike music,
Ears won't decline..

Anyone here tonight from Oklahoma? Anyone? (Sound of light clapping in the nose bleed seats.) You know why the license plates on the cars from Oklahoma say Oklahoma is OK? They have problems spelling mediocre. Pa-rum-pum. Here take this license plate from OK. Number on plate is IOU-555. .
