There was a musician who lived in the ground

He had so many notes just hanging all around

So he gathered them together but he didn’t have a clue

How to bring sweet harmony out from this very motley crew

*

So this musician, who was a bunny living in a hole,

Took the many notes he had and threw them in a bowl

But they made an awful noise, mixed up as they be

The sound from that mess just made cacophony!

The musical bunny didn’t know what to do

He paced while he thought, “I must think this problem through”

But the notes they all clamored and he finally lay down

“I must rid my bunny ears of all this dreadful sound!

ButBedNotes

So the bunny musician then lay down upon his bed

He had so many notes all floating in his head

He fell off to sleep and he dreamt of a place

Where the notes all made music with beauty and grace

ButBedSweet

He awoke with sweet music, singing in his heart

“I know what to do, and where I must start!”

He took all the notes and put them in a row

But some notes jumped up high and some notes fell down low.

“Hmmm” said the bunny, what should be my next step?”

Well that was the answer, he put them on steps.

“I see what I’m making, I’m making a place

A house for the notes to live in beauty and grace”

So this musical bunny worked long through the day

To put all the notes in a good place to play

He decided the timing, that’s the rhythm, the beat

The pace at which he clapped his paws or tapped his bunny feet!

And other times he added staccato for some zest! StaccatoNoteW

Others took there job to be helping harmony

Some notes they played together for they made a real nice blend

ChordsStaff

The bunny called them chords, for these notes were all close friends.

The many notes worked now together, rolling all along

In step and to the rhythm, they had become a lilting song!

So that is the story of the musician who lived in the ground

He had so many notes just hanging all around

But he gathered them together and put them each in proper place

And he made a composition, a song of beauty and of grace!

The hippity-hoppity-happity end!
