John Henderson
Stirling, Scotland
2006

Honky-tonk pianos,
Roll back the years,
Stir up old mem'ries,
Of past joys and tears.
Skilled syncopation.
Sweet melodies.
Lyrics with rhyming,
Remind us of all these.

When we now browse our computers,
We can find these old tunes with ease,
For many musicians now all round the world,
Sequence fine midis that please.
They do rag, stride, roll and ballads.
Even classical works find a place.
The range of provision's amazing,
For all with an eclectic taste.

These virtuosos,
Roll back the years,
Stir up old mem'ries,
Of past joys and tears.
Skilled syncopation.
Sweet melodies.
Lyrics with rhyming,
Make life a breeze!
