A Musician I Am - Quintet

A Musician I Am is a song heard on "Dora, La Música". The song starts with two instrument players and added additional players to extend the song. The first and last verses are sung to the tune of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", "Alouette", and "Down by the Station". The "I play the [instrument(s)]" stanzas are of the tunes of "Pop!

Trivia[]

  • Swiper is the only one not to have nor play an instrument.
    • However, when Dora, Boots, Benny, Isa, and Tico sing this song on the way to the Music Box, his (Swiper's) whisking sound cuts it off while the instruments were about to end.
  • Because Dora, La Música is the first episode to never feature the Travel Song, this is the first song that was sung in place of it.
  • Dora, Isa and Tico seem to be playing the flute, trombone and harmonica without the instruments touching their mouths.
  • The album version of this song, featured as the thirty-third track, only features Dora and Boots' parts and excludes Isa, Benny, Tico, and Señor Shush's parts.
  • The backing music gains more instruments as more friends are added to the parade.
    • Dora and Boots: Guitar
    • Benny: Piano and fingersnaps
    • Isa: Flute
    • Tico: All instruments together
