Allegro da Capo roadtoozinwhichi00baum 0102.jpg
From the book The Road to Oz (1909). Weird denizen of the Land of Oz who makes music merely by breathing:

My lungs are full of reeds like those
In organs, therefore I suppose,
If I breathe in or out my nose,
The reeds are bound to play.

So as I breathe to live, you know,
I squeeze out music as I go;
I'm very sorry this is so--
Forgive my piping, pray!

Illustration by John R. Neil.

He can't NOT make music constantly, which seems to be why he lives alone in the Valley of the Musicker
