The Note People

The Note People

by Bob Grant

Let me introduce the Note People – Nettie, Freddie, and Teddy.

They are part of your past – like a reliable old Steady.

They stick in your head for what seems like forever,

From a jingle you heard that some thought was cleaver.

They make you sing in the car – or loud in the shower,

They make you happy, or sad, or can give you great power.

They make you jump in excitement or settle in your seat,

They make you drum with your fingers and tap with your feet.

They make you praise to the lord or salute your own flag,

They make you dance a slow waltz or even swing with the shag.

They combine to make music for all people to hear,

And give us great pleasure year after year.
