Excuse me, Mr. Hoots I hate to bug a busy bird 
But I want to learn the sax 
And I need a helpful word 
I always get a silly squeak 
When I play the blues 

Ernie, keep your cool I'll teach ya how to blow the sax 
I think I dig your problem 
It's rubber, and it quacks 
You'll never find the skill you seek 
Till you pay your dues 

You gotta put down the duckie (put down the duckie)
Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
Put down the duckie yeah, you gotta leave the duck alone 
You gotta put down the duckie (put down the duckie)
Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
Put down the duckie if you wanna play the saxophone! 

You didn't hear a word I said 
You gotta get it through your head 
Don't be a stubborn cluck 
Ernie, lay aside the duck! 
I've learned a thing or two from years of playing in a band 
It's hard to play a saxophone with something in your hand 
To be a fine musician 
You're gonna have to face the facts 

Though you're blessed with flying fingers 
When you wanna wail, you're stuck 
What good are flying fingers if they're wrapped around a duck?

Change the toy's position if you wanna ace the sax! 

You gotta put down the duckie (put down the duckie)
Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
Put down the duckie yeah, you gotta leave the duck alone 
You gotta put down the duckie (put down the duckie)
Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
Put down the duckie if you wanna play the saxophone! 

One more time! 

Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
Put down the duckie (put it down) 
Put down the duckie and you gotta leave the duck alone
Put down the duckie (put down the duckie) 
I said I said put it down (down)
Put down the duckie if you wanna play the saxophone! 
Yeah!
