You didn't know that typewriters are classified as musical instruments?

I found out from http://emoglen.law.columbia.edu/publications/anarchism.html that at one point typewriter manufacturers successfully got typewriters classified as musical instruments so that they could take advantage of low railroad rates for shipping musical instruments.
 
The song is called The Typewriter by Leon Anderson. Excellent song! It's on the album Classics for Kids that I had to get from Amazon as Google Play doesn't carry it.
 
I remember listening to this song on tape about 20 years ago! I wonder if it's still sitting in a box in my parents' house somewhere. I must track it down...

The Master Jerry Lewis did an amazingly fantastic mime to this song back in the day.

Who ever wrote this music is a visionary and to the guy with the type writer great job, for 2 reasons; 1 Way to play and a beet and 2 GREAT faces!

the ears defines music, even if the sound comes from an odd instrument.:)
 
Info on the music - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Typewriter.

This piece formed a segment of the movie, "Who's Minding The Store?", starring Jerry Lewis. The "typewriterist" has clearly borrowed some of Jerry Lewis' actions for the piece.

Pablo Gutierrez es respetable tu opinión, pero creo q aún cuando se ve simple, requirió d creatividad para idear algo así y mucha practica para lograr la sincronía con los demás instrumentos...
