Song Description

Here is the shorter instrumental version of A Little Tune edited to fit a format.


A Little Tune
(Words and Music by Michael W. Avery/Daniel Anderson)

Down the alley, I did sneak
Tongue placed firmly in my cheek
Trying to steal away to Chesapeake
So I can break this losing streak

Oh, I was a sad specimen
Miles away from Bethlehem
Scratching out lyrics with a fountain pen
That hasn't been used in who knows when

Papa told me to learn a trade
So I kicked the bucket brigade
Fell off a mountain and had a good laugh
Because I still here for the second half

Life goes on, lose or win
Listen to the sound of the mandolin
Eight strings right in tune
Just a little tune to be over soon

Trouble's hanging at your backstairs
So say goodnight and say your prayers
Once you realize that life is brief
You start stealing moments because time is a thief

When it all ends I will make amends
And say "Goodbye" to all of my friends
Let the water wash away my sins
In the Sweet Bye and Bye

Just a little tune to be over soon
Just a little tune
Bye, Bye in the sweet bye and bye
Just a little song
