Yes, It's Goofy, But It Is a String Quartet

I must share a little song my kids have taken a liking to. It's called "Violin", from They Might Be Giants' children's album "No!"

At first, my adult mind tried to make sense out of the song, without success. My kids enjoyed it immediately, and I realized that kids are just easily amused by nonsense. However, there is a bit of value to this song beyond its sheer entertainment value. The instrumentation is in classical string quartet style. It will also put the word "violin" on your kids' tongues, and perhaps inspire them to play one.
