Oom Pah Pah!

It began with an Oom Pah Pah
And everyone began to sway
To the dance floor, they went
As the band began to play

The clarinet began to tweet
The flugelhorn, it jumped in
The bass fiddle it was plucked
It’s tones added to the din

The men wore their lederhosen
The women wore their dirndl dress
To the polka, they danced
Trying to do their very best

The beer flowed, there was plenty
The wiener schnitzel, it was too
Around and around the floor
They danced. Didn’t have a clue

Into the tuba beer was poured
Oom pah pah’s no longer heard
The culprit hated polka music
Consequences, to him, never occurred

Beer, he had drunk too much
And on wiener schnitzel he gorged
Into this invitation-only party
He used an invite he had forged

Out on his ear, they pitched him
But the damage, it was done
The party, he had ruined it
Thinking it was going to be fun

Now he has a belly ache
And a bad headache to match
No more German parties would he
Crash or crazy scheme hatch!
