it was the biggest gimmick

to have ever hit the land
he'd hire a bunch of midgets
have them playing in a band
that's what he meant to do
but yet he didn't understand
the odds of finding midgets
who could play as he had planned
cause they had such tiny arms
and also had such tiny hands
their little fingers stretching
couldn't reach much when they fanned
so he sought a new solution
although the thought he should have banned
he'd get some giant instruments
and put them on the stand
and then hire some full grown people
but those instruments so grand
would fool the paying audience
who wouldn't understand
cause they'd really look like midgets
what a clever sleight of hand
but he was finally caught
and what an awful reprimand
for he went before a jury
and upon the witness stand
he revealed it was the instruments
that he chose to expand
then off he went to prison
as the sentence did demand
and all because he wanted
to create a midget band
