"Strike Up the Band, song (from Strike Up The Band; both versions)" as written by and Traditional....
Let the drums roll out
Let the trumpet call
While the people shout
"Strike up the band"

Hear the cymbals ring
Callin' one and all
To the martial swing
Strike up the band

There is work to be done, to be done
Let's have fun, fun, fun
Come on you son of a son, of a gun
Take your stand

Fall in line, yea a bow
Come along, let's go
Hey, Leader, strike up the band!

There is work to be done, to be done
Let's have fun, fun, fun
Come on you son of a gun, of a gun
Take your stand

Fall in line, yea a bow
Come on, let's go
Hey, Leader, strike up
Hey, Leader, strike up
Hey, Leader, strike up the band!
