The Lyrics

Fred'rick The Great, that old famous Prussian
Was the first King to use unique percussion,
Like them old,
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Marched and played 'em in the military
Although big and clumsy, hard to carry
Were those old,
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Beat them with a wooden beater
But there was no sound that's sweeter,
Than those old,
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Kept that infantry a trottin'
Pleasant sounds were always gotten
From them old
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Steel bars like a xylophone-y
Rung bell notes of high pitched tone-y
From those old
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Glockenspiel, in German, means "Play Bell"
Pleased the ears of Max and Maybelle,
Did those old,
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Oh, with the infantry a trottin'
Pleasant sounds were sweetly gotten
From them old
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

From them old
Glockenspiels of Chrome..

Yes, them old
Glockenspiels of Chrome

(Oh, yeah)

This rings a bell. Might be good to add a note that a glockenspiel is like a small xylophone. Some folks on here might think it is a small handgun. :-)

Thanks, Tim...but, I believe if they read the parody, there's enough explanation and description in the stanzas...Not too many small handguns make a pleasant sound..and thanks, alvin

Mein lieber Herr . . . please, Sir, be careful with terms German . . . Around Old MilTown this has a different meaning . . .

Farce - By far the best use of "Glockenspiel" I have ever seen in a parody. Love how it pases the original pace, theme and rhyming concepts from the OS to the parody. Fresh and as Alvin called my parody today - "wonderfully weird". Keep them oldies rollin' my frined. You are the best on the site with the ancients. Lovely.
