The Lyrics

Tambourine, hand held drum of fame
You are meant to shake - the jingles make your game
Tambourine, from France you dropped by
Any group you're with, can make good rhythm fly

Sometimes seen - headless Tambourine
At a folk song bar, or in The Argentine
Once, the tambin' tempo's begun
They'll declare - the sound's next to none
Spice up the band, dear Tambourine

Tambourine, easy box of sway
With no tutoring - most gals or guys can play
Tambourine, add an expert's aim
And you become an added thumb roll game
Small and keen, bouncin' Tambourine
Hangin' cool and grand on high hat stands I've seen
You are played all over the world
More romantic when by sexy girls
We love your rhythm, Tambourine

Nice job! I like how you rhymed "with" with "rhyth--"! Shake-shake-shake and 5-5-5! BTW, I did something similar a few years ago: Tambourine http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/salsoulorchestra0.shtml
