A/N- All these parodies are based on a junior high concert band because I haven't been in a marching band yet. This just seems to fit best in these sections so please don't flame me about that!!!

Be a Flutist (or what it takes to play the flute)

(Stage setting- A flute ensemble practices for the night of the concert.)

Let's get down to business

To play for the show

Did they give me athletes

To play for this band

You're the meekest bunch I've ever met

And I'll bet before we're through

Bando I'll make flutists out of you

Quiet as the night sky

But blazing strong within

Once you find your focus

Then your notes will ring

You're an inexperienced, breathless lot

And you haven't got a clue

Bando, I'll make flutists out of you

Be a flute

Notes must come fast as a coursing river

Be a flute

High notes as clear as a summer morn

Be a flute

Play with the strength of a blazing fire

Regardless of whether your flute is cold or warm

I've got no time to take a breath

Say goodbye't the section for me

Tell me again how far this phrase will go

Those high notes really have us scared to death

Wait'll you try the low keys

Now I wish we weren't playing for the show!!!

Be a flute

Notes must come fast as a coursing river

Be a flute

High notes as clear as a summer morn

Be a flute

Play with the strength of a blazing fire

Regardless of whether your flute is cold or warm

Days are racing forward

Till the concert night

Try to play together

And we might survive

We've practiced real hard for tonight

Now it's time to test the truth

I think I've made flutists out of you

(Be a flute)

Notes must come fast as a coursing river

(Be a flute)

High notes as clear as a summer morn

(Be a flute)

Play with the strength of a blazing fire

Regardless of whether your flute is cold or warm

(Be a flute)

Notes must come fast as a coursing river

(Be a flute)

High notes as clear as a summer morn

(Be a flute)

Play with the strength of a blazing fire

Regardless of whether your flute is cold or warm
