Anyone Can Make Music Words and Music by Bill Pere
(from the Musical ""Life In the Pits"...the Orchestra War)

I had a voice like a frog, I couldn't sing a simple tune...
So I tried to learn an instrument, and started on bassoon
I tried my hand at all the winds and drums and brass and strings...
But I found that I was just all thumbs and couldn't play a thing
I didn't know what to do
Till I found that old Kazoo...

And now I can make music
Anyone can make music
All you have to do is want to (It's from the heart)
All you have to do is want to (Right from the start...)

They say that I can't play flying songs
Like they can on their soaring strings
But if given a chance to try
I know I could make people fly...

They say that I can't play dancing songs
Like they can on their lightfooted reeds
But if given the chance
I know I could make people dance...

They say that I can't play fanfare calls
Like they can on their shining brass
But if my song had a chance to ring
I know I'd make people feel like a king...

They say I can't play a rhythm groove
Like they can with the beat of their drum
But if given a chance, I could prove
That I could make people move...

And now I can make music
Anyone can make music
All you have to do is want to (It's from the heart)
All you have to do is want to (Right from the start...)
