I'm a drummer (female) 

I don't have a piano at home
nor a violion either
a toy accordeon
won't help me
so I opened the closet
so I took out a pot, spoon and a fork too
and now to sing

I'm drumming on the pot
drumming with the song
I'm drumming like on a tarbukah
and I'm flying with the beat

My neighbours say girl
our head's hurting already
really give us some silence
between two and three
and I say to them
it's fun for me
from morning to evening
to sing and to drum

I don't have an organ at home
nor a flute either
so why should a song of Mom's
stand like a scarecrow
