This is the sax….

I always thought that Saxes were instruments that came from the pit of hell. Well about 3-4 yrs ago I actually bought one and learnt to play it. Then I bought another and experimented by putting silicone rubber pads in it. Sold the first one and bought and much better sax, and then bought a 1924 Martin Stencil C melody Saxophone in Immaculate condition. Somewhere I came across the poem below, But I also sold the C Melody. I paid about $120 for it and sold it for $1100 – now thats great business. Actually I miss it very much but sold it to pay for my grand piano.

Anyway here is the poem

 

This is the sax that Jack blew.

This is the fall that broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the stand that held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the drunk that kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the guy who ran the bar
That served the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

These are the guests, all lah-di-dah
That flocked to the guy who ran the bar
That served the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the speech that went too far
That bored the guests, all lah-di-dah
That flocked to the guy who ran the bar
That served the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the Groom, a Henry Hoorah
That gave the speech that went too far
That bored the guests, all lah-di-dah
That flocked to the guy who ran the bar
That served the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.

This is the Bride, maternity bra
That married the Groom, a Henry Hoorah
That gave the speech that went too far
That bored the guests, all lah-di-dah
That flocked to the guy who ran the bar
That served the beer that mashed the drunk
That kicked the stand
That held the horn before the fall
That broke the sax that Jack blew.
