I know a fool who blows a horn
He comes from way down South, oh yeah
And you ain't seen some blowin' since you been born
Like when a trombone's to his mouth
He wails and moans, grunts and groans
He can moan just like a cow
And you ain't seen some blowin' since you been born
Cause he won't show them how

Chorus:
Oh Charlie won't you play that thing
I mean the slide trombone
Make it talk
Make it sing
I mean the slide trombone

If Gabriel knew how you could blow
He'd let you lead his band I know
Oh Charlie won't you play that thing
I mean the slide trombone

Chorus

Now you ain't seen such movin' hips
Like when the trombone's to his lips
Charlie Green play that thing
I mean the slide trombone
Oh yeah, I mean the slide trombone

    I like the trombone. It can make funny sounds. It is very common in most jazz and pop tunes.

    Does anyone have a new or used instrument that i could try playing?

    I love the sound of the trombone.
