Six Guitars

Story

This one is pretty self-explanatory. I have guitars, banjos and mandolins spread all over the house, so a quick tune is never far away.

Lyrics

Six Guitars

 

Hey there little baby can I play you a little tune?

Can I play you one in the morning? Can I play you one at noon?

Where do you want to hear it? I’ll leave it up to you

Cause daddy’s got six guitars, one in every room

 

I got six guitars, I got six guitars, one in every room

Six guitars, I got six guitars, and it’s so hard to choose

 

Number one’s in the kitchen, propped up on a chair

So when you eat your spinach, I’ll be singing there

Number two’s in the TV room, but there ain’t no TV

So you can’t just sit and stare you’ll have to play with me

 

I got six guitars, I got six guitars, one in every room

Six guitars, I got six guitars, and it’s so hard to choose

 

Number three is in the playroom next to the building blocks

No need for a cradle cause this baby sure can rock

Number four’s in the office where work it should get done

But no one works when baby’s here we’re all having too much fun

 

I got six guitars, I got six guitars, one in every room

Six guitars, I got six guitars, and it’s so hard to choose

 

Number five’s in the bedroom for when you’re layin’ down

I’ll pick you out a lullaby with a sweet and quiet sound

Number six is in the bathroom, seems a strange place for a song

But sometimes we can use a little help to get things moving along

 

I got six guitars, I got six guitars, one in every room

Six guitars, I got six guitars, and it’s so hard to choose

 

I got six guitars, six guitars, so we can sing and play and grow

I got six guitars, six guitars, six guitars now don’t you know

I got six guitars and an old broken down banjo
