Lyrics:
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
        You son of a gun of a gun, take your stand

Form a line, oh, oh
Come on, let's go
Hey, leader, strike up the band!

{instrumental break}

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


Form a line, oh, oh
Come on, let's go
Hey, Mr. Leader,
Hey, Mr. Leader,
Please strike up the band!
