Lyrics MOUNTAINS I LIKE,
THE SEA I LIKE,
AND LEMON
IN MY MORNING
GLASS OF TEA
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!
SATIN I LIKE,
CHENILLE I LIKE,
AND STAFFORDSHIRE
THAT'S ABSOLUTELY REAL
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
A BIG BASS DRUM,
I LOVE
A SLIDE TROMBONE,
I THINK
THE TRUMPET
AND THE FLUGELHORN
ARE GRAND.
BUT IF YOU WANT
TO SEE ME HAPPY;
PUT THEM ALL TOGETHER
IN A BIG BRASS BAND.

DIAMONDS I LIKE,
AND PEARLS I LIKE,
ESPECIALLY
ON CERTAIN PRETTY GIRLS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

HONOR I LIKE,
IDEALS I LIKE,
AND KNOWING
HOW THE PRIDE
OF VIRTUE FEELS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!
CHECKERS I LIKE
AND CHESS I LIKE,
AND CLIMBING
UP THE LADDER
OF SUCCESS
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
THE PICCOLO,
I LOVE
THE BASS BASSOON,
I GIVE
THE XYLOPHONE
AND GLOCKENSPIEL
THREE CHEERS.
BUT PUT THEM
ALL TOGETHER,
MAKE THEM PLAY
TOGETHER,
AND WHAT ENSUES
IS ALWAYS MUSIC
TO MY EARS.

LOANING I LIKE,
WHAT'S LENT I LIKE,
AND EVERY
NICKEL NOVEL
YOU INVENT
I LIKE.
BUT LIKING IS ONE THING
AND LOVING IS ANOTHER,
AND I LOVE MUSIC!

I LOVE
A BIG BASS DRUM,
I LOVE
A SLIDE TROMBONE,
I THINK
THE TRUMPET
AND THE FLUGELHORN
ARE GRAND;
BUT I LOVE MUSIC!
I LOVE MUSIC!
MUSIC
IS MUSIC
TO MY EARS!
