You taught me what I need to know
With that I had the roots to grow
Once I got into symphonic
I just had to go with the flow
After that I had the need to always keep the tempo
When I changed to bass clarinet
I was caught in a net
Of loneliness
The next year there were more bass clarinets
But once I changed to contra bass clarinet
I was back in that net
Of loneliness
Forever alone
