Original Lyrics by Irving Berlin:
I Know A Fine Way
To Treat A Steinway

Lyrics on Micheal Feinstein's version that inspired this thread:
I Just Appalled When
It's Not a Baldwin
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGIb5mC02cM

Can you rewrite the lyrics for the piano of your choice?

After one dealer's bolognia, I chose an Estonia.

Or,

Having talked to Mauel, I went with Laul. (Our last names do rhyme)

My Hailun has really got me smilin',
My Austin-Weight is really, really great,
Soon I'll have an Erard in my back yard,
And I'm enjoying a Sandwich with my Fandrich.

Scratch your Ibach, and

Why oh why didn't I choose a Kawai
Instead I chose a Samick
And now I'm in a panick

The best examples IMO are the ones that fit the original music in the spot the original lyrics come from. Some of the above work fine and the others...? See the Pianist Corner for some more clever examples.
