    BAG-PIPES-THAT'S MY BAG
    WRITER RAY STEVENS

    >From the albums "Gitarzan", "Boogity-Boogity", "The Incredible World of Ray Stevens", and "The Last Laugh" Written by Ray Stevens Note: The "vocal bagpipe" technique is where you make a bagpipe-like sound with your voice. (vocal bagpipe intro)

    Well, blowin' that bagpipe, that's my bag
    Hu-huffin' and a-puffin' on my bagpipe bag
    Wheezin' and a-blowin' 'til my big fat floppy jowls sag
    Make it sound like a train comin' over the trestle
    If I blow it any harder, I could bust a blood vessel
    Blowin' that bagpipe bag - OW! That's my bag

    Ready, set, gonna blow a little bit... (vocal bagpipe break)

    He came over the water on a boat from Scotland
    To the U. S., started him a rock and roll band
    Playin' for picnics, parties, cookouts and parades
    He'd stand on the bandstand in his red plaid kilt
    Groovin' on his bag, how the melody would lilt
    Played up at Harvard and down in Vanderbilt
    He's a miss... wears a dress

    Well, blowin' that bagpipe, that's my bag
    Hu-huffin' and a-puffin' on my bagpipe bag
    Wheezin' and a-blowin' 'til my big fat floppy jowls sag
    Make it sound like the whistle on a big ol' train
    If I blow it any harder, I could bust a blood vein
    Blowin' that bagpipe bag - OW! That's my bag
    One, two... gonna blow some for you (vocal bagpipe solo)

    Well, his name was Partrick Alfred Mouldoon
    Never got up 'til it was late in the afternoon
    Practiced all night... you hum it, he could play it, any tune
    He'd blow up flat tires to keep his lungs in shape
    And his face would turn purple like a big fat grape
    Ev'ry time he cut out on the chorus of "Clare de Lou"

    Well, blowin' that bagpipe, that's my bag
    Hu-huffin' and a-puffin' on my bagpipe bag
    Wheezin' that thing 'til my big fat floppy jowls sag
    Make it sound like a train comin' over the trestle
    If I blow it any harder, I could bust a blood vessel
    Blowin' that bagpipe bag - OW! That's my bag Ready, set... here we go again! (Vocal bagpipe outro)
