TC sent me a lyric.
I put music to it.
No banjos were harmed in the making of this track.
HOWEVER... I would like both a banjo and an accordion for my musical instrument arsenal.

tc: Headline reads: Quick lyric turns into fun song thanks to awesome collab partner, Metalfoot!

Lyrics: 

If I had a banjo I would play all day
At least until supper, anyway
I'd kick up my heels and dance on the lawn
Play a little tune called the banjo song

If I had a banjo I would play all night
I'd play till the lantern ran out of light
I'd play in the kitchen, I"d play on the couch
I'd play for the roosters, I'd play for the cows

And the banjo song, well, it never gets old
That banjo music soothes my soul
Soothes my soul

If I had a banjo I wouldn't wanna stop
I'd play for my ol' lady and for my dog, spot
I'd learn a chord or two or maybe even three
I'd play for a dollar, I'd even play for free

And the banjo song, well, it never gets old
That banjo music soothes my soul
Soothes my soul

This song immediately puts the writer into Leonard Cohen territory for writing a song about a (Broken) banjo that does not have a banjo in it. A real toe-tapper and catchy hooks. Well done on the collab!

I really wanted to hear some banjo in this, but I guess that would sort of undermine the whole point of the song. This was happy. I needed happy today. Thanks for the happy!

This is delightful! Makes me want a banjo too... well I have one but I can’t play it like I would like! I love the playfulness of the lyric and the strum, harmonica, ands catchy melody make me smile! If you were closer I would share my banjo with you! Great collaboration!

Fun lyrics, excellent music. You should have a follow-up song where you find a banjo, play it, and drive everyone crazy. Nice collab!
