Manhattan TransferTubby The Tuba At The Circus

Tubby joins the circus but ends up as a water carrier for the elephants. he really wants to become a star under the big top bu walking the tightrope. however, tubby takes an embarrassing fall. a Ly old elephant helps him to see that music is tubby's special talent. Tubby (tim hauser) When the buds begin to pop And the robin takes a hop Everybody says, "it's spring today!" I suppose that may be so, But I'd like for you to know I can always tell it's spring another way/ I can always tell it's spring When the circus comes to town; It makes me want to sing When I bump into a clown! When the circus marches past And the band goes tan-ta-ra I know it's spring at last, And my heart goes, "oom-pah!" Tubby's idea (cheryl bentyne) Alley-oop, oom-pah, Alley-oop, oom-pah, An acrobat you ought to be, Alley-oop, oom-pah, Alley-oop, oom-pah, Hey tubby! you'd be a sight to see! Elephant (alan paul) Be yourself, you can't be anybody else, Be yourself is my advice to you, Or else you'll always be a nobody, So be yourself, or else. A hippopotamus Would look very curious Flying like a butterfly; A fierce and hungry lion Would look silly tryin' To bake an apple pie. I think you'd get a laugh If you saw a tall giraffe Swinging by his tail from a tree; I think an octopus Would look quite ridiculous Knitting sweaters at the bottom of the sea. So be yourself, and do the things that you know best, Be yourself, I think that you'd be happiest By being no one else but you © 2014
