The Lyrics

I hope this song isn't prophetic. I do have a gig tonight (1/18/13) and this had better not happen. ;D



First gig this month - a double.
Open my case - there's trouble.
For I have spied - some damage to my slide.
Have you a trombone to borrow?

Look at those scrapes - I've picked up.
How did my horn - get nicked up?
My spit valve cork - is split just like a fork.
Have you a trombone to borrow?

I should have seen this lurking.
This is enough to make me cry.
For if my 'bone's not working
You can bet - neither will - be I.

Can't pull my slide - or pump it,
And I'm not good - on trumpet.
This time it's true - my tuba will not do.
Have you a trombone to borrow?


(Instrumental Break)


I own no sax - for playing in my acts.
I need a horn by tomorrow
Or I will feel lots of sorrow.
Have you a trombone to borrow?



When reading the previous amiright versions of this tune I saw Wendy's take on the original song (Will You Be Ugly Tomorrow?). Check it out...it's a good one. ;D

Original, personalized and funny. I can't resist informing you my 'bone's' in perfect working order but I don't think you'd want to borrow it. Btw, you're probably aware of it, but for a solo trombone feast, it's hard to go past Lee Robertson on this early (c.1983) Kid Creole performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM7HlfrqHH4 Unusual and refreshing to see trombone-led dance-funk-rock. Unfortunately the fabulous 'Coconuts', led by highly decorative choreographer Adriana Kaegi, are missing from this performance, but you can check them out elsewhere.
