Tim Minchin - F Sharp lyrics

rate me

I've been having quite a problem recently

Which is quite disturbing musicalically

Involving a semitonal discrepancy

Vocally and instrumentally

You see musicians of different varieties

Prefer playing in particular keys

And singers, too, treat preferentially

Those notes they tackle more proficiently

Now you don't have to be a member of MENSA

To understand the depth of my dilemma

The two elements of me favour two different keys

Thus a rift betwixt my fingers and my tenor

I love nothing more than playing instruments in F

It warms the very cockles of my heart

The trouble is that F can leave me vocally bereft you see

I like playing in F major but I like singing in F sharp

F sharp

I refuse to be beholden to my hands

I don't see why my larynx should give in to their demands

I'll not be forced to compromise my art

And so I just keep playing in F major and singing in

F sharp

F sharp

F sharp

F sharp

F sharp

I'll keep playing in F major but I'll keep singing in F sharp
