Musical limericks no.1

The Flautist

A student who tootled the flute
Confessed to adoring the lute
But she got her wires crossed
When her music was lost
And could not tell Mudarra from Poot 

The Oboist

The oboist played somewhat loud
Because he was working the crowd
When the reed gave a squawk
They were all set to talk
But the fella just stood there and bowed.

 The Clarinettist

A girl bought a gold clarinet
But it led to her drowning in debt,
So the kind soul who taught her
Drew cash out and bought her
A soup and a sandwich at Pret.
