    Concert and Marching Band Poem

    'Tis the end o' June
    And the top o' July -
    The mailman wonders
    Why I sigh,

    When in the box no Concert Band grows
    And it seems that Time is static and "froze"
    Until the day only Garritan knows
    The product is shipping to "regular Joes."

    So idle I sit,
    My thumbs all a-twiddle,
    My GPO knit
    With a Harp and a Fiddle

    Awaiting the day when it will appear.
    With sections of trumpets and horns will I hear
    The ruffle and flourish of ensemble winds
    A glorious big compilation of dins.

    And yet with an oboe, a flute or a sax
    And very close managing of their attacks,
    Releases and phrasing and all of the rest,
    I'm sure to make music - for that is my quest.

    O! For a fine package of Helicon fire!
    O! For killer Trumpets with heat and desire!
    O! For Saxes and Tubas and Horns!
    O! To make music and no longer mourn!

    At that time of day when the Mailman appears,
    I wait with my eyes open - and both my ears
    Maybe today it will finally be mine
    That package from Gary for two thirty nine!

    Well, I meant this as a funny thing -in no way a complaint or a denigration. What do ya say we all lighten up a bit? I just can't wait to get my hands on those glorious Garrtitan wind band samples!

    'O reberclark,
    You clever shark
    'tis time you know it
    that you're quite a poet

    What is its fate?
    Concert / Marching band is late
    And we patiently wait
    For NI to get it straight

    The printing is spun
    And the beta is done
    When the masters arrive
    Then we soon can go live.

    It just seems so wrong
    that the wait's been this long
    But soon it will be here
    and then we can cheer.

    The beat of a drum
    Will cure your glum
    The euphonium's zest
    Will curl hair on your chest

    With sousaphones tootin'
    And winds hi-flutin'
    And many horns ablaze
    will be sure to amaze

    Wherever you tread
    You'll be one step ahead
    Soon, us musical marauders
    Will have our marching orders

    Re: Concert and Marching Band Poem

    Loved your poem Gary! Gunther - thank you for your kind words!

    There once was a man - Garritan
    Whose mind conceived of a plan
    To market good noises
    To girls and to boyses
    Through a software concern that he ran.

    They greeted these sounds with such glee
    That they brought the whole world to its knee
    Then entered NI
    And some time it passed by
    And they wondered "is it them or's it me?"

    But the software was soon all repaired
    And the company stood up and stared
    At its great conceivement
    And glorious achievement
    Of the accolades they had ensnared!

    Ha,

    let us now arrange a new song with this all great lyrics!

    I think about a near sounding song to
    They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa

    from: Dr. Demento's Delights
    Warner Bros. 1975 BS 2855 0698
