Major Scale in Sea

Was of fish all, sharking whales
Noted when it came to scales,
Now, all love a sardine so
Comes no ray when note is Do;
Piano sole-oh you might hake
Better porpoise sound can make —
At my plaice was needed sooner
Eel-ing by the piano tuna!

  1. You’re a pretty smart bloke, wish I had half the talent.

    We have our annual visit today from the man who attempts to wrest perfect fifths from an instrument used to perfect fists and rests. Another punderful post, Col, it’s a wonder you haven’t hereby thusly used up the world’s stock of chromatically contrary musico-marine homophones.

    I have NO ability to cleverly play along (and that wasn’t a pun about the piano!) but I am such an admirer! You have a gift, Col!

    A wordsmiff of note, you have found your niche
    But this still doesn’t mean you can yet tuna fish.
    Though you’re probably better than plinky-plonky,
    Especially now your piano ain’t so wonky

    For those who don’t ‘get’ puns:

    Major Scale in C

    Was official: shocking wails
    Noted when it came to scales;
    Now, all of a sudden so
    Comes no Re when note is Do;
    Piano solo you might hate
    Better purpose sound can make —
    At my place was needed sooner
    Healing by the piano tuner!
