MIDI File

Fi Fi: You no doubt heard of the happy home
Where music is ador'd;
Where each one plays an instrument,
The best they can afford.
Our family at home's like this,
We think that music's grand,
And ev'ry night we all combine
And make a glorious band.
And Martha spanks the grand Pianner,
Father whacks the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blows the tootle-tum.
Charlie swings the concertina,
Bob goes fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggle the stick
With a one, two, three.
Chorus: Martha spanks the grand Pianner,
Father whacks the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blows the tootle-tum.
Charlie swings the concertina,
Bob goes fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggle the stick
With a one, two, three.
   
Fi Fi: We go each summer for a week
Down to the rolling sea;
The boarding house at which we stay
We fill with harmony.
And should the other folks object
We treat them all with scorn.
Each night we play our repertoire
And keep it up till morn.
And Martha spanks the grand Pianner,
Father whacks the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blows the tootle-tum.
Charlie swings the concertina,
Bob goes fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggle the stick
With a one, two, three.
Chorus: Martha spanks the grand Pianner,
Father whacks the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blows the tootle-tum.
Charlie swings the concertina,
Bob goes fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggle the stick
With a one, two, three.
   
Fi Fi: Now Cousin Maudie married well,
In fact, he was a Dook;
We all went to the wedding, and
Our instruments we took.
And one old Countess who was there
Declar'd it wasn't style;
And didn't all the servants and
The haughty flunkeys smile,
When Martha spank'd the grand Pianner,
Father whack'd the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blew the tootle-tum.
Charlie swang the concertina,
Bob went fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggl'd the stick
With a one, two, three.
Chorus: Martha spank'd the grand Pianner,
Father whack'd the drum;
Mother in a soulful manner
Blew the tootle-tum.
Charlie swang the concertina,
Bob went fiddle-de-dee;
But I'm a brick for I waggl'd the stick
With a one, two, three.
