    Our dear friend Alfred Yankovic still plays a mean accordion in his concerts (haven’t heard a new song of his played thereon for quite some time).

    rug muncher must mean something different where you come from than what it means here.

    Jon Smyth: I’m guessing from the context of getting a “nanny for the rug munchers” the rug munchers are little kids, probably still in the crawling stage.

    I think the genius means “rugrats.”

    Mama’s got a squeeze box
    She wears on her chest
    And when Daddy comes home
    He never gets no rest

    ‘Cause she’s playing all night
    And the music’s all right
    Mama’s got a squeeze box
    Daddy never sleeps at night

    I once saw a bumper sticker in an election year: “Pro-Accordion, and I Vote”.

    Last part of Lynn’s Note:

    I do have a word of advice, however: Ladies, it’s a fine instrument, but never play an accordion in the nude!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When I was a kid, a travelling salesman came to the door selling piano accordions. I’m not kidding. With every purchase, they threw in a year’s worth of lessons. My mother, wanting me to play something (that wouldn’t swallow half the living room and take ten years to pay off), actually considered buying one. Here was a piano-like instrument that was almost portable! I liked polkas and accordion music in general, but the cool factor was lacking. I declined. A real piano would have been great, but this was not the same! In desperation, she promised me that playing the accordion would increase my bust size. For a budding teen, this argument had merit, but the piano accordion still wasn’t my thing.


    Years later, when I was living in southern Ontario, I met some musicians from Newfoundland. Caught up in my love for east coast music, I bought myself a button accordion. This I learned to play not too badly, and after a while, it showed. I was indeed building up bulges where none had been — on my arms. I actually had pipes! I knew then that the old arm-pumping exercise to the cry of “We must, we must, we must improve our bust!” was hogwash. The only sure way to enhance the un- enhanceable is through surgery! I still play my accordion, but only for sympathetic friends, and I don’t really care about the bust line. I do have a word of advice, however: Ladies, it’s a fine instrument, but never play an accordion in the nude!

    Like in Math, my blind spot was also in music. I can draw and write, but music…not a chance.
