Come on and hear! Come on and hear!
Al-ex-an-der's rag-time band!
Come on and hear!
Come on and hear!
It's the best band in the land!

They can play a bu-gle call like you nev-er heard be-fore
So nat-u-ral that you want to go to war
That's just the best-est band what am, ma hon-ey lamb

Come on a-long,
come on a-long,
let me take you by the hand
Up to the man,
up to the man,
who's the lead-er of the band

And if you care to hear the Swa-nee Riv-er played in rag-time

Come on and hear,
come on and hear,
Al-ex-an-der's Rag-Time Band.
